Title: [Letter] 1823 22nd, Genoa [to] Douglas Kinnaird/ Byron.
Personal Author: Byron, George Gordon Byron, Baron, 1788-1824
Byron, Anne Isabella Milbanke Byron, Baroness, 1792-1860.

Extent: [1] leaf.
Accompanying Material: The letter is accompanied by a memorandum of a dinner menu in Lady Byron's handwriting.
General Note: See also the letters of other Romantic poets in the collection.
Abstract: Byron encloses a letter from Mr. Deardon and his answer "which I trust you will approve," and requests that Kinnaird forward it to the proper address. He mentions the Congress which may push the effort forward, and asks Kinnaird to leave the letter bearing his seal open. Byron ends by stating that Kinnaird will have had several epistles from him lately. One of the most well-known Romantic poets, Byron is credited for the popularization of the "Byronic hero," a dark, brooding protagonist haunted by a mysterious past. His works include Childe Harold's Pilgrimage which focuses on his travels in the Mediterranean and the East and Don Juan. His wife, Annabella Milbanke, married him in 1815, but left with their daughter Ada in 1816 and obtained a legal separation on the grounds of adultery.
