“ You have nothing to do, but transcribe your little red books, if they are not rubbed out; for I conclude you have not trusted every thing to memory, which is ten times worse than a lead pencil. Half a word fixed on or near the spot, is worth a cart load of recollection.”

GRAY's Letlers.

TO

SIR WILLIAM GELL.

DEAR SIR,

On quitting Naples, for those scenes which

your pen and pencil have so faithfully illustrated, I promised to fill my note book. I now offer

you its contents, as a small and unworthy token of my gratitude for the long continued kindness you have shown

Your faithful and obedient servant,

THE AUTHOR.

Naples, April, 1835.
