To the Editors:

I am sorry that in a footnote to my review of Elizabeth McHenry’s Forgotten Readers [NYR, July 3] the name of Brenda Stevenson was omitted as the editor of The Journals of Charlotte Forten Grimké (Oxford University Press, 1988). Stevenson’s introduction and notes are superb, an honor to a fascinating figure in nineteenth-century African-American literature.
