Re: SOLO Geraldine Jewsbury in Jerrold's Shilling Magazine-ans

Re: ~[solo poetry] Stars of the Desert - Laurence Hope - lt

I tend not to ask for word perfect because I don't want to hassle someone volunteering their time, but yes, poetry can be a lot less forgiv...

Re: [Biography] Charles II by Osmund Airy - jo

Hi Pam,

Section 1 is PL OK. I'm looking forward to hearing more of his policy of quoting directly from contemporary sources.

Good grief, I've just seen that I didn't include the link to the text in the first post. The first post has been duly updated.
