[1823-01-13+] Pine & Davis / 1822 np Robert Morehead CL 1134 CL dates [1823]. Proposed date based on references in letter to Collection of Poems being put to press and Baillie organizing list of subscribers. This dates the letter sometime after the 13 January 1823 letter to Walter Scott.

[post 1823-04-02] no wmk Hampstead Miss Kelly CL 1084 Edinburgh University dates this 1833, but CL suggests 'closer to 1823.' The letter almost certainly refers to the publication of the 1823 Collection of Poems (to which a Miss Kelly appears among subscribers). Baillie sent Walter Scott the first copy of this work on 2 April 1823.
[1823]-04-11 no wmk Cavendish Sq William Smyth CL 1220 [no comment]
[1823]-05-10 no wmk Hollybush Hill Thomas Longman CL 1160 Addressed only to Longman.
[1823-06] no wmk Hampstead Samuel Rogers CL 801 Dated [1823?] in CL, but the letter is clearly contemporary with Baillie's 17 June 1823 letter to John Murray.
1823-06-17 no wmk Hampstead John Murray CL 1161 [no comment]
[1823]-06-24 no wmk Hampstead William Sotheby CL 227 Dated 'before 1824?' in CL, but reference to Felicia Hemans's 'new volume' The Siege of Valencia makes 1823 certain.

[1823-1826] Pine & Davis / 1823 Hampstead Margaret Holford CL 723 No date in CL, but year limited by watermark and Holford's October 1826 marriage.
[1824] J Whatman / 1822 np Sir Walter Scott CL 428 [no comment]
[1824-01?] [unknown] Cavendish Sq Sir Humphrey Davy CL 498 Dated [1823] in CL, but it must be some time after the 23 September 1823 death of Matthew Baillie. The description of Sophia Baillie's health is similar to that in the 20 January [1824] letter to Lady Campbell.

[1824-03?] G & R Turner Cavendish Sq Mr. Croker CL 1083 So dated by Edinburgh University, though unclear why. However it seems likely that Baillie was at Cavendish Square in early March 1824.

[1824-07?] II Smith & Son / 1823 Hampstead Margaret Holford CL 706 Written before the 29 August 1824 letter to Margaret Holford, probably in late July.
[1824?]-08-02 II Smith & Son Hampstead [Mrs. Hamilton?] FL 96 [no comment]
[1824]-08-03 II Smith & Son / 1823 Hampstead William Sotheby CL 202 CL dates this circa 1816, but a reference to Elizabeth Ham's 1824 work Elgiva, or The Monks and UC agreement confirm the year as 1824.

[1825]-10-01 R Barnard / 1823 London Archibald Alison CL 1192 CL dates [after 1823?], but reference to Matthew Baillie's Lectures and Observations on Medicine (1825) and comparison with 11 October 1825 letter to Margaret Holford make 1825 certain.

1825-12-21 G & R Turner Hampstead Margaret Holford CL 582 CL dates 21 November [1825], following Baillie's own date. However the postmark clearly reads DE 22, and internal evidence (a discussion of the death of Alexander I of Russia, which was announced in the 20 December Times) suggests that Baillie slipped.
[1826-01?] no wmk 25 Cavendish Sq John Gibson Lockhart CL 826 National Library of Scotland dates this [1826?]; internal evidence and comparison with other 1826 letters suggests this was written very early in the year.

[1826]-04-11 J Whatman / 1825 Hampstead William Sotheby CL 193 CL dates [1814?], but references to Baillie's friend Miss Fanny Head's translation of Klopstock's Messiah (also a topic in the 27 March 1826 letter to Walter Scott and the 11 July 1826 letter to Anne Elliott) and a description of Sotheby's new work (also included in the 12 May 1826 letter to Margaret Holford) confirm 1826.

[1826]-05-02 1825 Hampstead Henry Hart Milman CL 1148 CL dates both 2 May letters [1826?], but reference to James Mylne's candidacy for the Vinerian scholarship confirms 1826 (he was not chosen). Baillie's May 1826 letter to William Harness closely follows these letters.
[1826]-05-02 1825 Hampstead John Gibson Lockhart CL 824 [no comment]
[1826-05-02+] 182[5?] Hollybush Hill William Harness CL 1212 CL dates [after 1820]. Letter refers to the Bishop of London's May 1826 consecration of Regent Square Chapel; see Caroline M. Duncan-Jones, _Miss Mitford and Mr Harness: Records of a Friendship_. London: SPCK, 1955, page 20. This letter postdates Baillie's 2 May 1826 letter to Henry Hart Milman.
