[1818-02?] no wmk Grosvenor St. Caroline Wilson CL 1207 CL dates [1833?], but the Grosvenor Street address dates this before February 1820. The distressed tone of the letter, and the sentence 'Lady Croft is as well as can be expected in such heavy affliction,' suggest that this letter was written shortly after the 13 February 1818 suicide of Sir Richard Croft.
[1818]-03-09 no wmk Hampstead George Bartley CL 1189 [no comment]
[1818?]-05-09 Ivy Mill / 1816 Hampstead William Sotheby CL 199 CL dates this [1815], but the watermark makes this impossible. 1818 is written on the letter in another hand.

1819-[04-22?] J Whatman / 1817 Hampstead Margaret Holford CL 705 CL reads the postmark thus; UC supports this reading.
1819-05-08 Bath / 1816 Hampstead George Bartley FL 68 [no comment]
1819-06-28 J Green / 1813 Hampstead Walter Scott CL 387 CL dates this 18 June 1819; Millgate reads the date as 28 June 1819. Internal evidence (Baillie has already read Bride of Lammermoor, which was published 21 June 1819) supports Millgate.

[1820-06?] C Wilmott / 1818 N. Castle St. Mrs. Alison CL 1205 Dated 'before 1839' in CL, but the watermark and address (not noted in CL) suggest this was written in Edinburgh during Baillie's summer 1820 visit to Scotland.

[1821-11-12] [unknown] Hampstead [Edmund Kean] CL 1075 No date in CL, but the letter clearly refers to the new ending to De Montfort Baillie wrote for Edmund Kean. Information in the 21 November 1821 letter to William Sotheby allows for the precise date.

1822-06-[22?] J Whatman / 1819 Hampstead Sir Walter Scott CL 410 Millgate dates this 24 June 1822, noting that 22 June 1822 was a Saturday (the letter is dated 'Monday') and that the date may have been added in another hand.
