1819 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Sir George Buc

Lord Byron to John Murray, 25 May 1819; Letters and Journals, ed. Rowland E. Prothero (1898-1901) 3:371.



P.S. — I petition for tooth-brushes, powder, Magnesia, Macassar oil (or Russia), the sashes, and Sir N. Wraxall's Memoirs of his own Times. I want, besides, a Bulldog, a terrier, and two Newfoundland dogs; and I want (is it Buck's?) a Life of Richard 3d, advertised by Longman long, long, long ago; I asked you for it at least three years since.
