Description

The letters include 16 from the writer J. Sheridan Le Fanu to Bessie Pigott Bennett (whose younger sister, Susan, he married in 1844); 47 from Margaret Decluzeau to Bessie Pigott Bennett; and about 270 from Lucy Caroline Cumming and others to Bessie Pigott Bennett.

J. Sheridan Le Fanu (1814-1873), the author. In 1844 he married Susan Bennett, the younger daughter of George Bennett, Q.C., a successful Dublin barrister. His writing was deeply affected by her early death in 1858. For fuller details of his life and achievements see the Dictionary of National Biography.
