The manuscript originals of Sly Dick, and A Hymn for Christmas Day, are, according to Taylor, on two leaves of the same manuscript, and in the possession of the Houghton Harvard Library. For the time being, we will have to make do with 'First Printings' from transcripts by Herbert Croft.
We await copies of the originals from Houghton Harvard Library in due course.
