Content Description

He has a friend in Paris who is a serious collector of autographs. He wants a Byron, he has some MSS corrections to the text of Giaour, but this is not enough. His friend is able to get items of the revolutionary period and wonder's whether Watts would like to exchange a geniune Byron for them.
