Autograph letter signed from Thomas Warton, Trinity College, Oxford, to George Steevens, Hampstead [manuscript], 1773 December 3.

Warton writes that the anonymous notes in the glossary are of the late Mr. T. Hawkins. Several of his notes which appeared first in Johnson's appendix were now written for the glossary of the last Oxford edition. He writes that "Collins' memory failed him in the information he gave me about the chemical romance : that information however seems to show, that there was some romance which Shakespeare had made the grand work of his plot for the Tempest."
