South Cave | Brough | East Yorkshire
March 18th, 1872

Dear Sir,

I should have been glad had it been in my power to put you in the way of obtaining for publi-cation the autograph letter of Lord Byron which you say that your father, the late W Clark Rector of Guiseley, presented to my Aunt, Mrs Busfeild of Upwood. She has been dead now thirty three years; but in her life-time I never heard her mention the being in possession of such a letter, nor have I the remotest idea of what has become of it. I have caused a diligent search to be made, but all in vain.

With much regret for your disappointment,

Believe me
Yours faithfully
W Busfeild.

[Docketed, by Clark:] March 18. 1872 | Mr Busfeild—on Ld Byron’s letter
