Abstract:

Saying that he has received a letter from Stanier Clarke offering Scott, on behalf of the Prince Regent, the Poet Laureatship. Enclosing his reply to Clarke and discussing his reasons for refusing the honour, noting that "I should do the thing ill and to do justice to the Prince's recommendation and credit to myself it would be necessary to do it capitally;" further noting that his public offices provide him an an income of £1600 per annum and that he fears "it would have a selfish and engrossing look to snatch at one of the very few offices which seem destined to men of literature who have no means of attaining to professional offices or emoluments." Recommending Robert Southey for the Laureatship instead, noting "he has neither my reasons of incapacity or of situation for declining it."
