· To Sarah Arnold of New Bedford, Massachusetts : 1 autograph letter signed "E. A. T." : 18 Dec 1814 : (B'ANA 0539) : 4 pages (double sheet) : from Boston : begins, "Your Uncle Francis having done our town ye honour to linger in it a little longer than he expected enables me to add a sheet more to the pacquet already handed him." With a tongue-in-cheek account of how Boston has received the news of Lord Byron's impending marriage, including, "It seems pretty generally agreed that we're to have no more poetry from him; or at any rate, that ye connubical concert will charm away (as in ye case of Saul) ye evil spirit that has long passion'd him & led him like ye New Testament Demonicae to dwell among ye tombs till (to my taste) he was fit for no other company."
