Poet. ALS to "Mac Farlane." Two pages, 4to, slightly torn at fold. Giving him the address of Mansfield (a mutual friend), but advising him to apply to Murray's as to whether or not he is in London. On the more general points of his direction in life, regrets that he has little influence and that "emigration to Canada, in the absence of better prospects, would be your best resource." Some jokes about "the HOG rampant" seem to concern James Hogg the poet: "I detest pig in all its shapes; but would willingly have seen your Hog upon the table. Many thanks for the sauce with which you have served him up cold." The recipient is probably Charles Macfarlane (1799-1858), historian and miscellaneous writer, who travelled much in Italy where he met Shelley in Naples; W.S. Rose was older than him, hence the reference to his having "youth strength to friend you." Rose himself inspired Byron with the works which he wrote, with J. H.
