Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, and The Mikado. ALS, one page, 4.25 x 6.5, 8. Albert Mansions S.W. letterhead, October 16, 1876. Letter to a gentleman in reference to a work not yet published and music. Letter in full: My Dear Sir, Mr. Boozy have been away some time, and this song although printed is not yet published. Probably this may account for you not having heard from the firm.I will request them to send you a proof. I am not by way of writing any songs just at present. Therefore I return those you were good enough to send me. Many thanks all the same. Yours truly, Arthur Sullivan
