— roughly half of a letter to Thomas Bailey Aldrich, editor of The Atlantic Monthly (1881 to 1890), from an aggrieved writer. Among other things, the writer accused Aldrich of holding his manuscript, "Shakespeare's Viola," for nearly seven weeks, then rejecting it unread. Aldrich said he invited the writer to come by the magazine's offices but never heard further from him. The letter appears in "The Life of Thomas Bailey Aldrich," by Ferris Greenslet (Houghton Mifflin, 1908)
