[1805?]-03-22 1804 Hampstead Mary Berry CL 174 No date in CL, but reference to Agnes Baillie seeing 'little Roscius in Hamlet' suggests 1805 or 1806. William Henry West Betty, the Young Roscius, debuted in London in December 1804.

[1806]-03-02 1804 Hampstead Mary Berry CL 157 CL gives year as [1806?], but references to Baillie's mother and to David Baird's taking the Cape of Good Hope (described in the 1 March 1806 Times) confirm 1806.
1806-03-25 C Patch / 1804 Hampstead Mary Berry CL 158 No month or day in CL, but postmark clearly reads March 25.
1806-05-07 1804 Hampstead Mary Berry CL 159 No month or day in CL, but postmark clearly reads May 7.

[1807-1815]-09-12 no wmk Egland Barbara Bannister FL 39 The possible date of this letter is limited by the Bannisters' 1807 marriage and the May 1817 death of Mary and Agnes Berry's father. Baillie was in France in September 1816, a further limit.
[1807?]-11-13 Ruse & Turners / 1807 Strawberry Hill Revd Dr. Hutchison CL 1111 [no comment]
[1808-03-27] 1806 N. Castle St. Walter Scott CL 234 So dated by Millgate, following Walter Scott's own notation; CL dates [1808?].
[1808-03?] no wmk S. Castle St. Walter Scott CL 233 CL dates [1808?]; Millgate dates 1808-04? However the letter must fall between 22 February (when Marmion was published) and 11 March (when Sarah Siddons's husband died, and she broke off her Edinburgh performances).
[1808]-04-04 Magnay & Pickering Brown's Square Walter Scott CL 234 [no comment]
[1808-04-04?] [unknown] N. Castle St. Walter Scott CL 236 Reference to returning Scott's 'manuscript' dates this very soon after Baillie's 4 April 1808 letter to Scott. Millgate dates this later the same day.

1809-01-17 Ruse & Turners / 1807 Hampstead George Thomson CL 106 [no comment]
[1809?]-03-22 [unknown] Hampstead James Grahame CL 1119 CL dates [before 1811]. Grahame entered religious studies in late 1808 and died in late 1811; the letter's reference to the Bishop of Norwich (who in 1809 appointed Grahame curate of Shipton Mayne, Gloucestershire) makes 1809 most likely.
[1809]-04-25 no wmk Hampstead Archibald Alison CL 1187 CL lists this as 'postmarked 1808,' but according to the University of Glasgow online manuscripts catalogue, this letter is '[p]ostmarked May 6, 1809.' 1809 makes better sense: Baillie was traveling in Scotland in May 1808, and her brother made a trip to Scotland in the summer of 1809 (a trip mentioned in the letter as soon to occur).
