Evidence

Elizabeth Missing Sewell, on the anonymity of her first publication (""Stories on the Lord"s Prayer"", serialised in ""The Cottager"s Monthly Visitor"" in 1840): "I did not give my name, and no one knew anything about it, except my mother and sisters. I have often vexed myself since -- thinking that I did not tell my father -- but I had a dread of any person talking to me about my writing, and I knew that if he was pleased he would not be able to keep himself from telling me so. I was reading the little book aloud to my mother one evening when he was in the room, and not being well was lying on the sofa half asleep, as I thought; but he listened, and I think was interested, for he asked me what I was reading. I forget exactly what answer I made, but it certainly was not that I was reading anything of my own, and so I lost the opportunity of giving him pleasure."

Not clear whether Sewell reading the version of her work serialised(with slight alterations to 'expressions about baptism') in ""The Cottager's Monthly Visitor"", or the reprint, which gave the stories in their original form, and which appeared (apparently as a book) 'soon after', its publication having been arranged by Sewell's brother William (see p.66 in source).
