Dated "Office of the New Yorker, 195 Fulton Dr., Nov. 27, 1860". To Henry Morford, Esq.: "The Vision of the Coffin-Maker's 'Prentice" was an episode in the 'much Vilipended' novel Entitled "Puffer Hopkins" which is now & has been for this many a day out of print." He says he can get one for Morford if he needs one. Mathews published "The Career of Puffer Hopkins" in 1841. Both Mathews and Morford wrote fiction and edited periodicals in New York. James Russell Lowell, in "A Fable for Critics" (1841) depreciated Mathews as - "a small man in glasses (who) went dodging about, muttering, 'murderers, asses!'" One page, a half sheet cut from a larger sheet after the letter was written, cutting off the end of one word, but with no loss of sense. Folded as though for mailing, a Fine letter.
