2pp., 12mo. Bifolium on grey paper. Aged and worn. Addressed on reverse of second leaf by Black, with his initials, to 'J B Nichols, esq | 25 Park Street.' An interesting glimpse of the editorial workings of the Gentleman's Magazine and Georgian periodical publication in general. Black complains that he has been 'waiting some days for the concluding sheet (as I suppose) of that part of which contains the Ferrar, - the end of the quarto MS. copy'. He asks Nichols to 'send it quickly, because I wish to ascertain how the end of the work may be best made up, not being satisfied with Sir Richard's papers which you kindly put into my hands. I wish to send them to him with my remarks, and a proof of the last sheet of my papers when it is ready'. In a postscript he asks for 'A proof of my Grimaldi paper'.?>
