Autograph Letter Signed to 'My dear Cooke', 1 page 8vo (slightly smudged), no place, no date. Explaining that his book had sold so quickly that he had been 'compelled to serve my friends last. The whole impression is bespoke' and inviting him to Winchmore [Hill].
According to the Dictionary of National Biography 'In 1829 Hood became editor of the 'Gem', an annual which gave to light many remarkable productions, or at least productions of remarkable men, such as Tennyson. His own Eugene Aram's Dream' was among them. In the same year he removed from Robert Street, Adelphi, to Winchmore Hill, where he spent three years.'
