Autograph letter signed, 3 pages 8vo. Dated South Somercotes, 20 December 1856. To Lord ?. Apologizing for not getting the "great book" to him. Seeking clarity of some of the passages relating to Ephesus, an ancient Greek city on the coast of lonia, three kilometres southwest of present-day Selcuk in lzmir Province, Turkey. Likely the book being referred to is perhaps "A General Introduction To The Apostolic Epistles: With A Table Of St. Paul's Travels And An Essay On The State After Death" (a later second edition enlarged published in 1861) by Frederick Martin.
Frederick Martin, M.A. ; R.D. (1803/4-1864) Rector in 1848 at South Somercotes, Lincolnshire, England, Honorary Canon of Lincoln Cathedral, and Chaplain to the Bishop of St. David's. Frederick Martin was a student or fellow of Trinity College in Oxford, Cambridge or Dublin. There was a Frederick Martin who entered Trinity College Cambridge in 1822 and received his MA in 1831. He went on to a career in the church and was for 16 years Rector of South Somercotes in Lincolnshire (died Dec.6, 1864) , the epithet given to him in the pre-1975 printed catalogue of the British (Museum) Library, which records three works by him. He died in 1864 in South Somercotes. He probably had a brother Studley Martin.
