George T Chesney : The Private Secretary

'Gentlemen. I am the fourth generation of my family that have taken in Blackwood's Magazine; the back numbers bound form a handsome library of themselves. I regret most sincerely that in consequence of the story called "The Private Secretary" I am compelled to give it up. I never read such disgusting filth before, and am very sorry that such a high class (formerly) Magazine should have admitted such garbage into its columns.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Francis Philips      Print: Serial / periodical
