Holloway Gaol (November 22, 1885)

Dear Madam

Thank you so much for the splendid grapes which arrived in good order and excellent condition.

It is very kind of you remembering me after all my blunders and mistakes.

Everyone has been most extraordinarily kind... to me. It makes me feel very humbled to contrast what I have with what people say and think about me. Again thanking you most heartedly.

I am yours gratefully



Who is behind this website?

I founded this website in 2001 to assist me in my own research on W.T. Stead, little knowing then that it would become the largest online resource on Stead's life and career. Today this site is used by students, scholars and institutions around the world and has significantly contributed to the Study of W.T. Stead and the evils which he campaigned against.

If you have a question or query, feel free to Contact me and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience (but please don't ask me to do your research for you!).

NOTE: The WTSRS is a completely free resource. However, maintaining this website is not without cost. To help me keep it free for future researchers, please consider becoming a patron of this website. You can donate as much or as little as you like via my Patreon Account here.
