Two Autograph Letters, signed ("S./Saml Rogers")
St. James Palce; and np 1846 - A total of 4 pp. pen and ink on paper. 8vo. In the first letter, to[Francis] Wrangham, Rogers sends thanks and states "I am not now so young or so gay as when you roused me from my morning dream in the Temple, for I am now climbing ? my seventy sixth year ? but my heart is as young as ever & as sensible as ever to kindness such as yours. You ask me what I am writing - I answer little or nothing; though now and then I add a syllable or two in the shape of a note, when a new edition is called for. You have no doubt Wellesley's Effusions on the Weeping Willow ?" In the postscipt Rogers writes, "Southey is, I fear, sinking fast; & also Bowles, who has written me a melancholy letter, signing himself 'Your desolate friend.' His is something of the religous despondence of Cowper."In the second letter, addressed only to "My dear Friend" Rogers reports that he has "sent her 90 notes - all I had to give ? Moore came to my door in the Autumn ? From Borwood I have heard nothing & now Winter is arriving. I must sit down by my fireside ?". A total of 4 pp. pen and ink on paper. 8vo
