To S. C. HALL, [?18 FEBRUARY 1839]

Extract in N, i, 199; dated 48 Doughty Street, Monday morning—probably the Monday after 15 Feb 39, date of the first No. of the Art Union.

All good fortune to the Art Union,2 I think the idea a very good one, striking as it does into the only unoccupied field … Thank you for the perusal of Mr. Warner's3 letter, which I inclose. He was not quite correct in the facts of the "petty cash" story, the realities of which are far more honorable to the noble fellows concerned … The 18th of this fraudulentpg 510 month of February, which for the sake of periodical Writers should be blotted from the calendar, although I was born in it, or made a reasonable length, you know that of old.

Editor’s Note
2 The Art Union Monthly Journal, the first magazine devoted entirely to the fine and applied arts. Edited by S. C. Hall, it sprang from the London Art Union and adhered to the Union's policy of stimulating interest in art and attacking fraudulent dealers. Bought by Hall in 1840 and in 1849 renamed by him the Art Journal.
