The "Lisbon Packet" letter. Seemingly spontaneous, the letter is a fair copy, with one stanza to a page – though that doesn’t spoil the fun. [PSC]

Byron's follow-up on "the Norfolk sale & the rest of Col. Sawbridge’s business," and notice of travel to Malta.

"I am very happy here [Lisbon], because I loves oranges, and talk bad Latin to the monks ..."

"I have just arrived at this place after a journey through Portugal, and a part of Spain, of nearly 500 miles."

"Cadiz is the prettiest town in Europe, Seville a large & fine city ..."

Byron's first account of travel to his Mother including, "Cadiz, sweet Cadiz! is the most delightful town I ever beheld ...."

"I have sent Robert Rushton home...."

"Mr. Rushton, – I have sent Robert home with Mr. Murray...."

Byron's first complaint of Hanson's lack of correspondence.
