Wednesday. <[ choice: Dec | December ]> 14 – My dear Aunt Mary

I return you Mrs. Holland's and Dr. Smith's letters. She means kindly & no doubt so does he but their opinions on this matter are so totally different from my own, that I must decline giving any information whatever on the subject of myself or my history.

I also wish to say, & hope it will be communicated on to the French gentleman – that I consider it the most unjust, unwarrantable & unkind liberty that can be taken with an author – & especially when she happens to be a woman – to make any personal comments on her during her life-time. The only instance in which I am aware of its being done on me – was lately by an American, who visited me & afterwards put me in the newspaper – which conduct I considered in the highest degree ungentlemanly, & shall take care it has never a chance of repetition.

All that the public has any right to know about me they may find in a list of authors of the time – viz – that I, Dinah Maria Mulock, daughter of Thomas & Dinah Mulock, was born at Stoke-upon-Trent in 1826. – which information my French friend is welcome to: but if he puts – or anybody furnishes him with – any more, I shall by to consider neither him or them any friends of mine – my very quiet life, completely out of the literary world, ought to be a sufficient hint of how utterly I avoid & dislike personal publicity. –

My dear Aunt Mary Ever after yours DMulock
