Caption title set in italic type preceded by the following explanatory paragraph:' Having presented a Petition to the House of Lords, praying that an Act may be passed to perpetuate, for the use of the Public, the Museum which I have been collecting for many years at a great expense; I find that the Bill for effecting that purpose is opposed by George Soane, my younger son; and I therefore, in justice to myself, and in answer to any reasons which he may give for his opposition, feel myself called upon to print the following statements:— '. One hundred copies were printed by James Moyes on 2 March 1833 (Archives 7/17/4). The "Letters ..." named in the title above may be a reference to the portion of the longer of two versions of his Plans, elevations, and perspective views, of Pitzhanger Manor-House, ... In letters to a friend, 1833 (q.v.), for which James Moyes charged £2 18s. 6d. on 30 October 1832 to print titles, cancel two pages and print 15 copies of four sheets (Archives 7/17/4); or to Facts and results relating to the conduct of Mr. George Soane, and his connexion with the family of Mr. James Boaden, printed by Moyes in June 1832 (q.v.). However, no other copy of the former separated material in now survives in the Soane Museum, and the latter is not in epistolary form.
