The Critic was a failing weekly, and although it had not long to live, it was proud of its title "the oldest established weekly newspaper int he world" (it dated from 1719). The sub-editorship was first offered to Victor Plarr, who declined it and passed the suggestion to Dowson, who accepted.--Cf. Flower, p. 70, n. 1.

Abstract:

Mentioning that their collaborative work "The Passion of Dr. Ludovicus" is prepared for submission to the publisher Routledge. Mentioning that Dowson intends to visit Sayle at Cambridge, but noting that he may be delayed in this trip by the arrival of Swanton. Enclosing (not present) a letter from Plarr which contains an amusing anecdote. Noting that Dowson is to meet with Herbert Williams to "talk things over," stating "if I can work it without too much loss of time to the Dock, I shall take the unremunerative subeditorship of his most comprehensive journal [The Critic] for as long as he will have me." Noting that "experience in journalism won't be a bad thing & it will be an immense jest."
