Letter of Lord Byron to John Cam Hobhouse and Douglas Kinnaird, 19 January 1819

Byron's finances were often in a terrible state. This would often influence his opinions and place a strain on his relationship with his publisher John Murray. This letter addressed to Byron's close friends, the politicians Hobhouse and Kinnaird, who he met during his time at Cambridge University. They often acted on his behalf while he was out of the country.
