Letter from Grace's Publisher 

2pp ALS dated 31 May 1895 from JW Arrowsmith, then the proprietor of the Bristol based publisher which still thrives today.  Arrowsmiths had published Three Men in a Boat for Jerome K Jerome and also WG’s landmark volume ‘Cricket’. He writes, “I was at Lord’s yesterday and saw WG get his 1000. I would have gone double the distance to have seen it.  No wonder he is a spoiled man.” Perhaps their relationship was not always smooth!
