    Part of an autograph letter, by GARTSHORE, MRS. MURRAY (d.1851; musical composer):

    laid down in three pieces on a Victorian album leaf "Dearest Mrs. Southey, I look upon his lines and note as two of the most precious gifts I ever received. I say this from my heart and I know you believe me….". Mrs. Gartshore and Caroline Southey collaborated on a piece of music, published ca. 1850, titled 'River, River'; Caroline Southey writing the words and Mrs. Gartshore the music (which she dedicated to Caroline). Also laid down on the same leaf the autographs of other women writers, i.e. an envelope addressed in the hand Dinah Maria Mulock (afterwards Mrs. Craik), the cut signatures, with subscriptions, of Anna Eliza Bray, Rebecca Hey, Sarah Gordon, & Anna Mary Howitt. Also autograph note signed, with initials, from Elizabeth M. Sewell (the recipients name excised); with cut full signature pasted on. From an album compiled by Maria Burrard, a 2nd cousin of Caroline Southey.
