Your note with enclosed clipping, calling my attention to the story of Mr Edwards in the Century, "How Sal Came Through" was duly received. I had noticed the resemblance of Mr Edwards' story to my story, "How Dasdy Came Through", published in Family Fiction, February 12, 1887. I have since investigated the matter and do not wish to make the charge of plagiarism against Mr Edwards, who has accounted for his story in a manner which I must accept as satisfactory.1 Thanking you for your interest in the matter, I remain,Yours very truly, CHAS.
