Septbr 24th [? 1835]

Gentlemen,

In answer to your Letter received some time ago, I have to say, that I have never had any thing to do with the Sale of my books—Some time since Messrs. Longman informed me that my Book on the Lakes was out of Print, and for the sake of interesting a local Publisher1 in it, I put the work into his hands, leaving to him to fix the Price, without being in the least aware of the probability of any person being injured in any way by the change, or that any inconvenience could arize out of it to any one; and I cannot see what I can do in the case—

Sorry for your disappointment, which seems inevitable, in cases of this kind.

  • I remain Sirs          
  • Your Obedient Servant      
  • Wm Wordsworth

I deferred writing till I might have an opportunity of sending my Letter to London free of Postage.
