Manuscript letter from the satirical writer and publisher, William Hone to GCk, 18 June, 1822, asking for his autograph for a friend.
June 18, 1822
As usual, GCk has filled every blank space with ink sketches and doodles, including several large signatures of his own and Hone’s, and a sketch of the gibbet from the famous “Bank Restriction Note” satire published by Hone in 1819. The tone of the letter indicates the strong friendship between the two men.
