Letter from John George Black to George Gissing. He refers to the various questions being asked at Owens College as to Gissing's whereabouts: What art thou doing? My soul desireth thee as the bird doth the mountain. There is uncertainty in thy peregrinations which passeth understanding... Art thou lapped in luxury's delight? Thinkest thou the Sun will ever shine no more & all thy glory shall depart. Addressed to Gissing at 29 Tulketh Street, Southport.
Dated at Cleveland Villas [Higher Crumpsall, Manchester].
