DescriptionThanks them for the statement of account; concerns over the suggestion her autobiography should be published before her death; sets out her wishes for the future publication of her autobiography; thanks the publishers for sending newscuttings about her and her work, but finds many inaccuracies in them, and she writes about one of them: "as to the music teaching, it is an odd vocation to invent for me, as i have been deaf from infancy. These things are of no great consequence, however, and the spirit of almost every one of the articles is extremely kind and liberal".
