Excerpt from Observations on an Autograph of Shakspere, and the Orthography of His Name: Communicated to the Society of Antiquaries by Sir Frederic Madden, K. H., F. R. S. And S. A. In a Letter to John Gage, Esq. F. R. S. Director The Chatterton forgeries are now preserved in the British Museum, mss. Add. 5766, a.b.c. And exhibit the most decisive proofs ofthe impudence of the imposture, and the obstinate igno rance ofthose who were to the last its champions. These defenders of Rowley argue that Chatterton was incapable of reading any work of research; but ifso, how is it we find among his fictions the list of romances printed in Madox's Formulare Anglicanum, and a copy of the kneeling figure of one of the Howard family.
