Descripción

2pp., 4to. On bifolium, with reverse of second leaf addressed to 'Rev. T. Greenwood, | Leeds.' In good condition, on aged paper, with slight discoloration to second leaf. BBTI lists Gawtree as active in Leeds between 1817 and 1822; he took over the Leeds Intelligencer in 1818. The first paragraph reads: 'An opportunity has very unexpectedly occurred this morning of sending a packet. - I inclose you Blackwood, wch. we recd. uncommonly late this month. - As I heard you inquiring of Davies, respecting Taliessin the Welch Bard, I ordered "The Cambrian Plutarch" into our book Society to give you an opportunity of perusing it, & it is inclosed for that purpose. You can return it in a few weeks.' In the second paragraph he turns to his newspaper - presumably the 'Leeds Intelligencer' - requesting, 'for a particular reason', that Greenwood will, 'if possible, complete three or four more - as many as you can - of the Sketches. - I wd. not have requested it at present, but it may operate materially on my future interests & the prosperity of the paper. - More I need not say. - If I can furnish any additional materials, tell me.' He asks Greenwood not to discuss the matter with 'Mr. Wilson in Leeds'. He continues: 'Watson is not coming here on Sunday, on account of indisposition; - we shall have only Dawson and Newton'. He asks Greenwood if he can 'manufacture' something 'respecting them, particularly the latter, though it be but a paragraph, it will be acceptable.' He concludes by asking Greenwood to send him '"Penwortham Bells," or any other poetry to copy', adding 'The MS. shall be most religiously preserved and returned'. In a postscript he states that he is enclosing 'a lot of Autographs. - If you want to know any of the parties - inquire [sic] of me.'. N° de ref. de la librería 14420
