sibility that they might come out at the end of six years ; but not having since heard any more about them, I presume they are now immured among the family archives.

The house which contained these treasures was, in 1836, the residence of the late Duke of Leeds, whose ancestor, Francis Go. dolphin, fifth Duke of Leeds, married,* in 1773, the only child of Robert D'Arcy, fourth and last EARL of HOLDERNESSE, and succeeded, in 1778, to his Barony and estates. The only daughter of his son George William Frederick, sixth Duke of Leeds, was married, in 1826, to Sackville Lane Fox, Esq., M.P., who resided from 1836 until 1853 in the house in question, and appears to

* Mr. Croker, in Boswell's Life of Johnson, (vol. vii. page 362, Bohn's edition,) says that the doggerel lines composed on the marriage of the Duke of Leeds by one of his inferior domestics, and so familiarly quoted by Dr. Johnson, were on the occasion of the marriage of this fifth Duke of Leeds with his second wife, Catherine Anguish. But this is clearly a mistake, as the marriage did not take place till 1788, four years after Johnson's death. In a copy of Boswell's Johnson, with unpublished MS. notes by Mrs. Piozzi and her daughter Lady Keith, which I happen to possess, there is this note. “I fancy I was the lady, whose uncle, Sir Thomas Salisbury, used to repeat it for ever. The song was made by the porter of that Duke of Leeds (viz. the 4th) who married Lady Mary Godolphin."

The following are the lines, as quoted by Dr. Johnson, but Mrs. Piozzi gave another version of the second verse, and added a third :

“When the Duke of Leeds shall married be

To a fine young lady of high quality,
How happy will that gentlewoman be
In his Grace of Leeds' good company !

She shall have all that's fine and fair,
And the best of silk and satin shall wear;
And ride in a coach to take the air,
And have a house in St. James's Square.”

have had possession of the family manuscripts and so much of the Library as had not been removed.

These are the simple facts. If they do not reveal who was the actual writer of the Letters of Junius, they at least point out the head quarters of information, and account for some of the hitherto irreconcilable difficulties in adjudicating on the claims of Sir Philip Francis, who I believe to have been largely concerned, though not the sole and unassisted writer. Mr. Woodfall

may himself have been a considerable go-between in the matter, just as I was between the Englishman', and the Times,' without caring to pry into a secret which, by disclosure, would frustrate his own objects. I have no leisure to follow out all the ramifi. cations to which this discovery may lead, and must leave the interesting task to others. The enquirer will be aided in his researches by referring to my edition of Junius, and especially Mr. Wade’s Essay, prefixed to the second volume.
