Stevens 1896-11-26

Text, letter

I received from the S.P.C.K this morning by Parcels’ Post my manuscript of “Rob Wilder” and 13 other pieces amounting to about 31000 words, with the usual polite “Declined with thanks” etc. After keeping me in suspense for 6 or 7 weeks and causing great loss of time. I sent it up to the Editorial Secretary about October 6th. The Secretary said in a PS that any other manuscripts which I might send should be considered.
