£52.10.0 By Dr Jennifer A McGowan from the Blake Exhibition series

Good master Basire, the lad’s willing:
been drawing since the age of three,
haunts the print auctions.  See here.
he’s been to drawing school, and this—
and this—they demonstrate something
out of the ordinary, don’t you think?
An able boy, prone to detail rather than
the reverse—makes a change, eh?
Here’s my hand.  Now, Will….William!
Bit of a visionary sometimes, I fear.

All right, an extra ten shillings for that.
