BYRON - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 07/18/1814 - HFSID 350486. LORD BYRON Rare, signed autograph letter from 1814, to lifelong friend and fellow poet Francis Hodgson, discussing Byron's impending visit.
Rare ALS: " Byron ", 1 page, 7x9. No place, 1814 July 18. In full: Tomorrow (Tuesday) or Wednesday at farthest expect in all -- Capt. Byron (whom you know or will know) accompanies us.If there is not convenient room - we can dispose of him at the Hostel. Excuse haste -- in the hope of seeing you&c&c. Many thanks for today's epistle. I shall be happy to see you so. In October 1813, Byron, who published his wildly popular The Corsair three months later, had recommended Hodgson, who became a lifelong friend, to translate Lucien Bonaparte's Charlemagne. This letter was written shortly before Lord Byron's own short marriage. After proposing marriage for a second time in September 1814, just two months after he wrote this letter (Byron had proposed and been rejected in October 1812), he married Anne Isabella Milbanke, a mathematician and heiress, on January 2, 1815. She gave birth to their daughter that same year. Augusta Ada (later Countess Augusta Ada Byron Lovelace), Byron's only legitimate child, would herself become a mathematician and, with Charles Babbage, wrote the first computer program. The couple's brief, unhappy marriage ended because of rumors that Byron had committed incest with his half-sister, Augusta Leigh. CAPTAIN BYRON is likely Captain GEORGE ANSON BYRON, who became the 7th Baron Byron of Rothdale. Lord Byron's father, Captain John Byron, had been known as "Mad Jack" for his wild and immoral ways, which included deserting his family when the future poet was four years of age. Lightly soiled at blank areas. Small hole in matting fabric.
