The poet, editor and translator writes to the well-known publisher concerning an unidentified work that he is sending to Murray. He notes that he sees nothing to correct in the enclosed (not present) and questions whether Murray would like the author's name or not “As far as I am concerned I should rather prefer letting the lines take their chance by themselves but I do not care.” He also makes a recommendation on placement of ornaments in the text.
