Letter printed in "Morning Chronicle", "Courier", "Star", "Times" and "Morning Post" between 17-20 December 1811.
Sir, - In Consequence of the very great popularity of the Song "Robin Adair," now singing with unprecedented applause by Mr. Braham, I am informed that several spurious editions of it are preparing for the Press. Through the medium of your Paper, therefore, I feel it is but an act of justice to inform the Public that the Copyright of the only genuine Copy as sung by Mr. Braham, with the Symphony & Accompaniments as Composed expressly for that Gentleman by me, has been purchased at a liberal Price by Messrs. Button & Whitaker, of St. Paul's Church Yard, and that no other copies are genuine but what are published by those Gentlemen.
I am, Sir,
Your obedient Servant,
53, Marchmont St. Decr. 16th. 1811.
