“I hope that long ere this you have received the Ballads, and that they have afforded you some amusement. I hope, also, that the threatened third volume will be more interesting to Mrs Ellis than the dry antiquarian detail of the two first could prove. I hope, moreover, that I shall have the pleasure of seeing you soon, as some circumstances seem not so much to call me to London, as to furnish me with a decent apology for coming up sometime this spring; and I long particularly to say, that I know my friend Mr Ellis by sight as well as intimately. I am glad you have seen the Marquess of Lorn, whom I have met frequently at the house of his charming sister, Lady Charlotte Campbell, whom, I am sure, if you are acquainted with her, you must admire as much as I do. Her Grace of Gordon, a great admirer of yours, spent some days here lately, and, like Lord Lorn, was highly entertained with an account of our friendship à la distance. I do not, nor did I ever, intend to fob you off with twenty or thirty
lines of the second part of Sir Guy. Young
Leyden has been much engaged with his studies, otherwise you would have long since received what I now send, namely, the combat between Guy and Colbronde, which I take to be the cream of the romance. . . . . If I do not come to London this spring, I will find a safe opportunity of returning Lady Juliana Berners, with my very best thanks for the use of her reverence’s work.”
