as I receive the "Book of Beauty," I beg permission to consider it as only held in trust for you. This is the fourteenth of October, yet the fair editress has not yet sent me my copy. When it comes I will pack it up, together with William Spencer's(1) poems. These are edited by Miss Poulter, a cousin of my kindhearted old friend, Lord Guildford.

Miss Poulter published in 1841 " Imagination, with other poems."
