LEWIS, Matthew Gregory. A MANUSCRIPT LETTER. Inveraray - September 10th 1803. £ 2,500.00

Single sheet, folded, 7.5" x 9". 4 sides densely written. The letter describes a journey from Bowood House in Wiltshire to Inveraray Castle in Argyll. It is an amusing, entertaining and rambling thank you letter to Henry Petty-Fitzmaurice, later 3rd Marquess of Lansdowne. Lewis's journey takes him through Kidderminster ' this most infernal of all places.' He finds that 'the roads are all sand; the Hills are all brick-dust colour; the Houses are all dirty; the children are all ugly; the Men are all stupid; ... all the women are born old.' He fantasizes that the ground should open up and swallow Kidderminster and what it would be like when 'discovered in the reign of George the Tenth, like a second Herculaneum!' Discussing his route which takes him through the Lake District, reminds him to recount a report given to Lady Charlotte Campbell, writer and daughter of the 5th Duke of Argyll, who he is staying with, regarding Mary Robinson, the Maid of Buttermere. Mary is described as 'aloof and unconcerned' on the 9th September 1803, the day before the execution of her bigamist husband, the forger John Hatfield. The letter continues with an account of Lord John Campbell, 3rd son of the Duke and later the 7th Duke of Argyll, who has sent a letter home. Lord John has escaped arrest in France with the help of a governess by dressing in women's clothes and hiding in a wood until the governess manages to get a carriage in which he is carried to safety. This letter is full of incidents that are right up the street of the gothic novelist of which 'Monk' Lewis was a leading exponent.
