448 A Satire on Satire. From the Boscombe MS. through Garnett. Shelley (from Pisa) to Hunt, January 25, 1822: “I began once a satire on satire, which I meant to be very severe; it was full of small knives, in the use of which practice would have soon made me very expert. Garnett, Relics, 190.

449 Ginevra. Mrs. Shelley's Note, 1824: "This fragment is part of a poem which Mr. Shelley intended to write founded on a story to be found in the first volume of a book entitled L'Osservatore Fiorentino." Garnett identified the passage L'Osservatore Fiorentino sugli edifizi della sua Patria, 1821, p. 119. In the story Ginevra revives. Compare Hunt, A Legend of Florence, where Shelley's poem is referred to in the preface.

457 The Boat on the Serchio. Medwin, Life, ii. 122 : “I have heard Shelley often speak with rapture of the excursions they [Shelley and Williams] made together. The canal fed by the Serchio, of the clearest water, is so rapid that they were obliged to tow the boat up against the current; but the swift descent, through green banks enamelled with flowers and overhung with trees that mirrored themselves on its glassy surface, gave him a wonderful delight. He has left a record of these trips in a poem entitled The Boat on the Serchio, and calls Williams and himself Melchior and Lionel."
