"You are quite right, according to me, in being dissatisfied with my work; but not right at all in expressing your dissatisfaction as you did. I have never written rudely to you. Although hastily and curtly without doubt; and so you have no possible excuse for writing rudely to me. I shall give you the Feuilleton as far as I can without personal inconvenience. As for reading three volumes and writing an article in two days, I shall make an attempt this once without promising success; but I must ask you not to put me again in the same position […] As to the Whispering Gallery, it is only right to point out that one of your stories was in the ""World"" a month ago and in the ""Queen"" the week after.

Notes
This is a letter recently received from Brown, RLS’s former fellow-student, founder and original editor of the magazine London, that criticised (rudely, according to RLS’s letter) work by RLS submitted to him as editor. It seems that RLS may not have undertaken the rapid unspecified 3-volume reading experience mentioned: Editors’ Note 3 to Letter 464 states: “Soon after this RLS seems to have ceased contributing book reviews and other short-notice journalism to ""London"""" and Note 9 to Letter 468 that he had given up short-term journalism for ""London"" by mid-May 1877 (see Letter471 [mid-May 1877]: “I’ve been done with ""London"", many’s the long day”.
