The reference to Farnham may concern a visit to family friends of the Collins's, the Smiths, at Shedfield Green, Farnham, Hampshire. The manuscript mentioned may refer to one sent to William Harrison Ainsowrth or William Francis Ainsworth, who together operated Bentley's Miscellany from 1854-1868. Collins had presumably been asked for literary advice by an unpublished author and may have disposed of the manuscript in this way.--Cf. Baker, 213, nn. 1-2.
