if it appeared in the form of a
small book. I hope that Miss Howitt
will seriously consider this mode of
publication. The Anthropological Journal
would, in my opinion, be preferable
to Folklore for this purpose. Or it
might be offered to the Folklore
Society to be published by them as
a separate volume. If Miss Howitt
prefers this, I would use what
influence I have with the Society to
induce them to accept it.
I have copied out for my
own benefit some of the passages in
the work which interested me especially.
Might I be free to use the
material, with all due acknowledgement,
in my published writings? I
should be grateful for the permission
to do so, but would not urge
my request if the authoress feels
the least reluctance to grant it.
