If you are like minded you will look us up on your next visit to England. Why not bring your daughter and leave her here with us while you go up to London- Hy address will be Rugby, Tennessee, for the next 5 weeks Ever,yours Th2 Hughes timber desires me to thank you for your kind invitation and to say that though he cannot dine with you tomorrow he hopes to look you up on his return some 5 weeks hence. Thomas Hughes (1832—1896) author of Tom Brown's School Days (1857) was educated at Rugby and Oriel Colleges, Oxford. He first visited the United States in 1870, when he made Lowell e acquaintance. His subsequent visits were connected with a project commenced in 1879 which at first awakened all his enthusiasm, but later proved unsuccessful and was abandoned by him. In connection with friends he bought a large estate in Tennessee on which a model com~ munity was to be established. After he withdrew from the project, his mother remained with her youngest son and lived there until her death ten years later. The place was named Rugby. The letter therefore may be dated in 1879. The Robinson addressed is thought to be Moncure Robinson a friend of both Hughes and Lowell. (Collection of Captain F. L. Pleadwell of Honolulu)
