THE LIFE OF TOM HUGHES.
[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] SIR,—With the help of the surviving members of his family I am now completing the biography of Tom Hughes of Tom Brown's Schooldays and the many movements that he helped. We shall be obliged if any readers who have letters which were written by Hughes will kindly let us have an opportunity of their perusal. Communications will be wel- comed and notes with regard to his Parliamentary activities at Frome in the 'sixties will be particularly helpful.—I am, Erersley, Oak Road, Withington, Manchester.
