Guide to the Mary Webb letter, ca. 1914 MS 162
Mary Webb (1881-1927) was an English Romanic novelist who authored novels including The Golden Arrow (1916) and Precious Bane (1924). Most of her works were set in the Shropshire countryside where she grew up, and many of her characters were based on people that she knew there. However, her novels did not achieve much literary success with the general public until after her death.
This collection contains a letter by Mary Webb, an English author, to Geoffrey Dearmer. The letter, thanking Dr. Dearmer for his advice regarding publishers and some of her writings, also gives a description of her cottage in Hampstead. The letter is dated March 29, but no year is given.
