Three-page autograph letter dated 10 April 1884, addressed “Dear Browning” and signed “Believe me Faithfully Yours, Westland Marston.”  Marston writes here to Robert Browning, in connection with contributions to the New Dictionary of National Biography.  Specifically, Marston asks whether it would be agreeable to Browning if he wrote the notice of Mrs. Browning (Elizabeth Barrett Browning).  Marston says “I should at least bring to this labour the deepest sense of the nobility and beauty of her poetry both in spirit and in form and of my deep personal indebtedness to it.”  Marston goes on to say that his contribution should have the sanction of the addressee.
