Description: English novelist and poet Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) penned thisĀ  friendly letter in 1892 in which he mentions The Nation magazine. The letter reads: “My dear Sir: I have received the copies of the Nation that you have been so good as to send, & have read the articles with much interest. The inaccuracies are very slight, so far as I can perceive. My thanks to you for the trouble of forwarding them. Should you be in this part of the world again, & desirous of knowing the real names of disguised places, I will willingly give them.”

Thomas Hardy is known for writing novels with characters who often struggled with their passions and social circumstances. Some of his best known works include: Far from the Madding Crowd (1886), and Tess of the d’Urbervilles (1891).

The Nation is an American liberal bi-weekly magazine that began in 1865 as a successor to William Lloyd Garrison’s abolitionist newspaper, The Liberator.
