Letter from E. D. Clarke to William Clark


My dear Sir

I forgot to add to the List the following caution which you can insert—

“Never attempt to move antiquities, &c, by means of a firmaun from Constantinople. The only effectual mode of proceeding is by bribing the local Governors, called Aghas, Waiwodes, &c.”


You are very kind to offer to execute commissions for me. I shall be much obliged to you to enquire if Lusieri, at Athens, received the Thermometer, &c, which I sent to him by Lord Byron’s Servant.

Also to ascertain, by your own testimony, the truth or falsehood of this assertion which I have constantly made; viz. that the Boccaz of Samos, and the Island of Patmos, may be seen in very clear weather from the top of Mount Hymettus.

If you should want a common Greek Servant and Interpreter, you would find Antonio Manurâchi who lives at Constantinople to be quite a treasure. He understands collecting Medals, Plants, Marbles—is a very good Cook, Musician, &c, &c.—

I think you should also insert in your List one more Memorandum—namely

“To attend to the remains of the painted gothic style of Arch in the Levant, and ascertain the age of any such building”.

I have sent a short note for Lord Byron.

Most truly yours
E. D. Clarke.

Letter from William Busfield to J. W. Clark


South Cave Yorkshire
March 25th, 1872

Dear Sir,

My cousin, Mr J. A. Busfeild who now tenants Upwood, has discovered a short autograph letter of Lord Byron, and has sent me a Copy which I forward to you. From its brevity I fear it will hardly answer your expectation[,] but at least you may like to know what was its natur[e] and purport

Believe me
Yours very faithfu[lly]
W Busfeild

[Docketed, by Clark:] March 25. W. Busfeild | Byron’s letter.
