Bedford correspondence

Henry Bedford (Admiralty clerk) and his brother G.C.Bedford (Exchequer clerk - OW, and co-author with Southey of The Flagellant). NB References to Wynn tout court probably refer to Charles Watkin Williams-Wynn, very much part of the Southey set, rather than his elder brother, Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn.

Bigge correspondence

(Also from wife Maria - 6 - and daughter Augusta - 1.) Described by note on packet by 'AK' as 'very dull.' Thomas Bigge the goldsmith - a number of letters refer to the despatch of items of plate. 9/7/19 refers to the imminent publication of Don Juan and the suppression of the abusive 'dedication' to Southey and Lord Castlereagh - the poem is said to contain scandalous abuse of Lady Byron.

Bundle 1

J. Kidd has heard that Alban Hall is vacant and that PE is a candidate for the Camden professorship. A besom is needed to sweep out the unclean birds which infest that place!

Bundle 1

J. Kidd - perhaps, if PE takes over Alban Hall, he will be ineligible for the professorship, since his predecessor was also of Alban Hall. There is no rival candidate for the professorship, so otherwise it is a certainty - therefore delay taking over the Hall till after the election.
