PLUMMER (John, 1831-1914, Journalist)

Fine Autograph Letter Signed to “My dear Friend Paxton HOOD (Edwin, 1820-1885, Nonconformist, Writer, Biographer and Author) thanking him for sending “me your two charming and fascinating little volumes, which I prize far more than many books of mine, of much higher pretensions. I little dreamed of the amount of real poetic spirit with which you was imbued, but having learnt it, I can now understand ‘the reason why’ your name is mentioned with such warm fervour by my poetical acquaintances. Perhaps you will be glad to learn that my literary prospects have much improved, and that several articles from my pen have appeared in Once a Week, and that I am regularly engaged on The London Review, in which I have an article every week, such as ‘Short Time’, and that a very long paper of mine will appear in my friend, Charles Knight’s, ‘Companion to the Almanac’ for 1862. This is going up the ladder with a vengeance, but my progress is continually stayed by my infirmity of deafness, which has, however, not prevented my obtaining a young amiable and intellectual helpmate, who has made herself a great favourite with Lady Spencer, Mrs Charles Knight, Mr Walford and others who know me personally. As regards poor Clare he is still alive. I gave a long account of him in Once a Week and shall shortly commence editing a collection of his works, and may also act on the suggestion of my friend ‘Cuthbert Bede, and illustrate the various localities rendered sacred by their association with his muse. I understand that you are editor of the Eclectic Review and other ably conducted periodicals. If so, I should very much like to contribute occasional papers bearing on the Social Condition of the People. The Times and other daily papers did me the honour of quoting extracts from a paper of mine on the Dock Labourers, which recently appeared in Once a Week... I shall have a similar article, entitled ‘A Night in Whitechapel’... wishing you many happy years of prosperous and successful literary labours...”, 3 sides 8vo., Kettering, 8th October
