1 Procter, B.W. Bryan Waller, aka Barry Cornwall. Autograph Letter, Signed.

Dated 25 Bedford Square, Tuesday, 16 Nov. (no year, but paper watermarked 1827). To Mr. Hall, probably Samuel Carter Hall, giving condolences for his unidentified loss, asking about Mrs. Hall, and transacting a little business. Samuel Hall was a journalist and magazine editor. In 1839 he edited the "Art Union Monthly Journal"; he soon became its principal proprietor. He exposed the common English practise of forging Great Master paintings, so effectively that eventually the genuine article became almost unsaleable -- a Raphael going for seven pounds and a Titian for four (DNB). From this letter: "I send a little notice of Titian....(and) I hope to be able to get something ready for you in two or three weeks -- that is to say for your Jany No. but at present I am much engaged with law business." One sheet folded to make four pages, one is used. Folded as though for mailing. A little soiling, a Very Good letter.
