* To Mr. Burbidge. A very interesting letter on literary,
political and family subjects, reading in part: "My publisher
. . . says a number of unpleasant truths doubtless, about it
[A Day's Bide] but not instructive enough to tell me how to
make it liked, or myself more patient. To go on writing a
book which you hear is not liked is like telling a story to a
yawning company," etc. The above book was published by
Charles Dickens in "Household Words" and was the most un-
successful of Lever's works.
