"THE PEARL OF THE ANTILLES." ero TRH EDITOR OF THE
"SrzerlrOB..") SIR,—In your notice of Mr. Goodman's "Pearl of the Antilles" you state that the title "occurred to Mr. Goodman first, and he registered and advertised the fact considerably before the rival 'Pearl' was announced."
We beg to state that, until we saw an announcement in the Athenxuin of September 6th, we were not aware of such a book ; and that we had publicly advertised Mr. Gallenga's "Pearl of the Antilles," and sold an edition for America some days prior to the announcement and registry of Mr. Goodman's book.—We are, Sir, &c., CHAPMAN AND HALL. 193 Piccadilly, London, W., October 16.
