Extract of a letter from Mrs. Randolph to Th: Jefferson
‘Looking over some of the Literary magazines the other day, we met with the beginning of a tale by miss Edgeworth which interested us so much that we are all anxious to see the end of it.
perhaps mrs H. Smith, who is such a general reader, may be able to tell you from which work of miss Edgeworth’s, it is taken. ‘the modern Griselda’ is the name of the tale or Novel, I do not know which, having read only as much as one number of a magazine contained, and not possessing the following numbers.’
any information which will enable him to procure the work described in the above extract of a letter from Mrs. Randolph.
