Fifeshire, 8 july, 1859—

The Book called “German Romance,” consisting of Translations with Introductory Essays, was published many years ago,1 and is not now to be had in Shops, I believe, without great difficulty. It never was, nor will be, republished as a separate Book: but what of it seemed to be in the least worth retaining, is accurately reproduced without other change than that of arrangement (Translations all by themselves, Introducty Essays do) in the late Editn or general Reprint by Chapman & Hall 193. Piccadilly; who can at once give satisfactory answer on the subject.2
