Autograph letter signed ("Js Montgomery"), 2pp, 4to, Sheffield, 11 October 1827[?]. To "Gentlemen", apologizing for taking so long to write, explaining his absence, and thanking them for their letter which "contained an expression of personal kindness towards me, and was accompanied by a . . . Volume of your injurious and entertaining Periodical the Spirit of the Times -- would that the spirit of the times were more nearly akin to the christian and benevolent character of your book! -- dedicated to myself, and embellished with a portrait, in which I am very unwilling to recognize myself. From what original it was taken I cannot guess. . . ." Some soiling and wear; a few stains; one area neatly repaired with Japanese tissue.

James Montgomery (1771-1854): Scottish poet and editor, highly regarded by Robert Southey and others. (Item ID: 16951)
