Ink handwritten signed letter by Leigh Hunt:

Kensington Oct 21

Dear Sir,

Allow me to introduce to you my son in law, Mr Cheltham, who would submit to your consideration a project respecting your exhibition. He is in every respect trustworthy as he is intelligent,

Ever sincerely yours,

Leigh Hunt

PS. I know "Leigh Hunts Journal" is about to appear (for to my associates would have it called)

This letter can be dated to early 1834 as his journal had a suggestion of the title from his friends in the letter as intimated by Hunt himself. The lithograph of Hunt is engraved by H. Meyer from a drawing by J. Hayter.

A great addition to your English literature collection or Romantics collection.
