Broadside concerning an ‘Affecting Letter’

This letter is introduced by a prose passage which reads: ‘A Genuine copy of a most affecting letter sent by one of these young men, lately executed, to a young woman belonging to Edinburgh, with whom he has carried on correspondence for some years, with his dying advice and request to her, which is published with her own consent.’ It was probably published in Edinburgh in 1824. for more click here
