Manning, James Alexander (male) 1803 - 1875 English
In Wellesley as "Manning, James A." Of the Inner Temple. The handwriting of James A. Manning’s letter to Richard Bentley (BL Add.Ms. 46,652/3) is identical to that of James Alexander Manning’s application for RLF assistance (case 1262). Manning was paid in 2 installments, a year and 2 years before “Cardinal Sins” was finally published; both times others (Mary O’Hara and R. Surtees) collected the payment for him, but he had written the undated letter reminding Bentley of his promise (apparently to pay in advance of publication, contrary to the usual practice).
