Scope and Content

From Thomas Warter in Cleobury North to John Fletcher in Madeley, Shropshire. Fletcher will perhaps be surprised that Warter is sending him more verses before the re-publication of Fletcher's essay. 'But you must attribute my relapse into the rhyming disorder to the severity of the present season. When confined to the house by inclement weather, I frequently employ myself in poetical compositions. The employment affords me both amusement and exercise, for I cannot sit still while I am seeking the muse.' He hopes that perusal of the enclosed will be agreeable to Fletcher and Mr Gilpin.
