Charlotte Birch-Pfeiffer (1800-1868) was a popular actress and dramatist, known for her stage adaptations of contemporary novels. Sophie Verena (pseudonyn for Sophie Alberti, 1826-1892) wrote a number of well received novels. Here, Birch-Pfeiffer writes to her younger colleague thanking her for a gift, hoping to share each other's work, and discreetly updating her on her progress with an adaptation of Silas Marner. A nice letter with literary content.
