Letter to Richard Bentley, 24 November, 1836

As soon as I hear from Mess.rs Baldwin and Cradock I will let you know the rest If they should answer that they do not desire to have Helen till they are called upon by the public for a new Edn. of the whole collection of my tales & novels, and if that should be at a distant period perhaps it may not interfere with your wishes At all events you now know all that I have done or mean to do; and shall know as soon as I know more – I have every reason to be satisfied <with> your liberal fair dealing, and obliging conduct – and have so expressed myself of you to others as well as to yourself I am Sir Your Obed.t Servant Maria Edgeworth
