24 July 1899

Dear Mr Howitt
I am preparing a new and
enlarged edition of my book 'The Golden
Bough.' When I had the privilege of
reading your daughter's valuable and
interesting work on the Folklore and
Legends of some Victorian Tribes I
took the liberty of copying out some
passages that specially interested me,
and I should very much like to
be allowed to make use of some
of them, with all the acknowledgement,
in the new edition of my book. I
therefore make bold to ask whether
Miss Howitt will kindly accord
me permission to do so? If she

[written at top of page]
feel gratified [with- crossed out] by his
kindly appreciation of
the work + willingly consents
to Mr F making use of any
extracts he may
have made
