A letter from Amanda

"God in the heavens high", I exclaimed, and tore the envelope open as a wolf would a lawyer's throat, digesting the contents with a rapidity hitherto unequalled by man or mortal.
- from Helen Huddleson.

This brief letter was tipped-in to a copy of the first edition of Irene Iddesleigh. It reads as follows:-

Iddesleigh
Larne Harbour
Friga's day [Friday]
22-12-'05

My Dear Sir
I have just received through my publishers your esteemed order, which I now forward.

Verily Thine
Amanda M. Ros
Author

H. P. Thompson Esq.

It would seem that Amanda had bought the publisher's remainder stock and was fulfilling orders herself at this date. Note also that she had named her house "Iddesleigh".
