To Lord Byron, poet : 1 autograph letter signed : [June 1823] : (B'ANA 0397) : [from Genoa]; regretting that he has so far failed in his "medical negotiation," but hoping that an old physician of his acquaintance can help. With a [much later] note in the hand of Teresa Guiccioli on the final page: "Quand Lord Byron cherchait un medicin pour l'amener en Grece.".
