Extent & medium

1 piece, 3pp.

Content Description

Lawrence will join Knowles on Sunday for dinner at exactly half past five - there is very little temptation for later hours of dinner at that period of year. Lawrence will look out for the extracts and bring them with him; but he remembers when "taking stock" of his library, requesting an intelligent man to look out for whatever appertained to Fuzeli, and there being very little of him. Lawrence concludes by adding that he saw his mistake: "Gillies" not "Geddes" was the name in his mind.
