One page, 8vo, lined paper, good condition, hand attractive and somewhat calligraphic. "The irrelevance of the comments to date, on [ husband] Alan Odle's Candide, has moved me to attempt a small appreciation. I send it herewith, hoping that you may find room for it in the January number of "The Golden Hind". | If this is impossible please speedily return my m.s. so that I may send it elsewhere. But I hope you will allow it to accompany your reproductions of Alan Odle's works." Odle, Richardson's Bohemian husband, had illustrated an edition of "Candide".
