Townshend the Runner; or, the King's Favourite
Townshend the Runner; or, the King's Favourite, the last known serial written by James Malcolm Rymer. Townshend appeared in The Gentleman's Journal and Youth's Miscellany Vol. II, No. 36, 1 July 1870.
Rymer had disapeared from view after publication of the serial The Golden Heart a Domestic Story in the Christmas Number of Reynolds's Miscellany, Vol. 34, No. 863, 24 December 1864. Townshend the Runner may have been taken from unpublished Reynolds' stock. Illustration by Frederick Gilbert.
