Washington, D.C.: 3 September 1879


  When Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe was given a check for $10,000 by Mr. Jewett, three months after "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was issued, she didn't know what to do with it, and the publisher was obliged to go with her to a bank, into the mysteries of which she was initiated. Mrs. Stowe was paid $30,000 by Mr. Jewett.
