TM/2/2/01-Copy of a letter from Thomas Manning, 15 December 1799

Copy of a letter from Thomas Manning to Charles Lamb from Cambridge. He apologises for his slowness in answering Lamb’s letter – he is taken up with preparing a pupil for examination. He hopes to spend time with him in Town in about 5 weeks. He then adds some critique on the title of Lamb’s “Tragedy”. The Postscript writes that he has added a page of drawings and queer beasts but no record of these is with the copy. Dated 15 December [1799], postmarked 18 December, 1799. The copy is handwritten, 1 piece, 1 side
