Letters and notes

Robert Walpole (Aegean traveller and epigraphist) - PE wants to copy the Elgin Marbles at Burlington House, and getting tickets will be easy. PE has suggested collecting a body of inscriptions prior to Alexander - Walpole askes him to explain some of those in Chandler.

Letters and notes

Walpole seeking to use (and attribute) some PE emendations of Chandler's reading of an inscription in a forthcoming work on Greece and Asia (Memoirs relating to European and Asiatic Turkey, 1817?). The letter is black-edged.

Thomas Gaisford to Peter Elmsley

Inadequacy of own work. Sorry to hear of PE's change of plan re Sophocles. Praise for first sheet of OT (sent by Collingwood). PE should assert claim to emendations etc. which have been forestalled in Erdfurt's edition - should also publish Aj. Or OC, neither of which Erdfurt has yet done. G. has just been ordained.

Thomas Gaisford to Peter Elmsley

2nd volume of Poetae Minores in the Press. Asks for PE's comments on the 1st volume, to be included before the index. Lord Spencer has given him a duplicate copy of Theocritus (?) printed by Calliergus. Respect for Museum Criticum, but no time or wish to write for it. Valpy at the Classical Journal ignored TG's wishes concerning a piece of his, 'though the Journal itself is improving. Neither publication concerned to using best editions.
