Marion Bell (nee Shaw), wife of Sir Charles Bell (1774-1842) and discoverer of the distinct function of the nerves, writes a delightful letter to Mr. Elsom who has helped with the publication including writing the Preface. In the letter she says ñEven in my dreams, the Providential help you gave to the Letters, is before me.î and ñAlas for the poor Murraysî (publishers). Then a 2 verse 6 line poem, first line: ñThat night, I dreamt, what name to my lips in the morningî. ñIt really seemed to me as if the book flew off from nothing, altho’ the end was grave. Your magic pen came to my rescueî ñI am thankful that it is printed, and on record to show what he wasî.
