Wilks : Memoirs of Joseph Grimaldi

'I also return the Grimaldi MS. I have thought the matter over, and looked it over, too. It is very badly done, and is so redolent of twaddle that I fear I can not take it up on any conditions to which you would be disposed to accede. I should require to be ensured three hundred pounds in the first instance without any reference to the Sale-and as I should be bound to stipulate in addition that the work should never be published in Numbers, I think it would scarcely serve your purpose.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Charles Dickens      Manuscript: Unknown
