Evidence:

'Can you tell me anything of a book, published or rather printed, by the late Earl of Bridgewater at his press in Paris. It was in the French language - & contained all the Egerton traditions, and papers relating to the Lord Chancellor Egerton. The Egertons of [italics] Tatton [end italics] know nothing of it. I do not know the present Lord Ellesmere well enough to ask him.'

Additional Comments:

Additional editor Arthur Pollard. Letter from Elizabeth Gaskell to James Crossley (?). it sounds, given that she knows so much, as if she had read/seen the book and wanted to know more about it.
