1827-03-31 II Smith & Son / 1826 Hampstead Alexander Dirom FL 116 [no comment]
[1827?]-04-10 II Smith & Son Hampstead Alexander Dyce CL 1212 CL dates [after 1825]. Editions of Dyce's Specimens of British Poetesses appeared in 1825 and 1827; Baillie's 24 April 1827 letter to Margaret Hodson refers to the work at length, suggesting that Baillie had only recently seen it. Watermark: II Smit

[1827?]-05-03 26 Hampstead Sir John Sinclair CL 1085 Possible year limited by watermark and Sir John Sinclair's 1835 death. UC supports only 1833, but internal evidence makes 1827 more likely.
[1827]-05-11 Alton Mill / 1826 Cavendish Sq Felicia Hemans CL 1174 CL dates [1838?]; for explanation of new date, see Susan Wolfson's review of CL in The Wordsworth Circle 31.4 (2000) 237-240.

[1827-07?] [unknown] np Sir Walter Scott CL 439 CL dates [1827?], but Scott's journal entry of 22 July 1827 seems to be in response to this letter (see CL 440f). Baillie mentions looking forward to reading Life of Napoleon; by 27 August 1827 (letter to Margaret Hodson) she was reading the work.

[1828-34]-03-14 [unknown] Hampstead [Thomas Pringle] CL 1073 Pringle (d.1834) edited the 1829-1833 issues of Friendship's Offering. This is very similar in wording to the 13 March 1828 letter to Allan Cunningham.

[1829?]-05-11 J Whatman / 1823 Hampstead H.E. Lloyd CL 1193 [no comment]
[1829]-06-08 1828 Hampstead John Gibson Lockhart CL 828 CL lists this letter as written between 1827-1830; UC and internal evidence support 1829.
[1829-06-12] 1828 Hampstead Lady Dacre CL 1049 CL dates the two 12 June 1829 letters uncertainly, but the Dacre letter suggests they were mailed together. Talbot's translation of Tell appeared in 1829, his letter is dated 12 June (a Friday), while the letter to Lady Dacre is dated simply 'friday morning.' Its reference to Agnes reading Rybrent de Cruce makes it contemporary with the 21 June [1829] letter to Anne Elliott.
[1829]-06-12 II Smith & Son Hampstead Robert Talbot CL 1049 [no comment]
[1829]-06-21 II Smith & Son / 1828 Hampstead Anne Elliott CL 478 CL dates [1831-32?] based partly on faulty evidence (Louisa Merivale actually died in 1873); but references to the 1829 novel Rybrent de Cruce and to the deaths of Thomas Carr (April 1829) and Mrs. Ann Merivale (1829) confirm 1829.
[pre 1829-08-06] no wmk Hampstead John Gibson Lockhart CL 827 Dated 1829? in CL. The 6 August 1829 letter to Walter Scott refers to this letter as already sent.
[1829]-08-06 [unknown] Hampstead Sir Walter Scott CL 431 CL dates [1825-1826], but Millgate provides conclusive evidence that this is 1829.
[1829]-08-28 no wmk Hampstead Lady Byron CL 738 [no comment]
[1829]-10-04 no wmk Hampstead Lady Bentham CL 1059 CL dates [1829?]; the letter clearly was written in response to the 1829 death of the Benthams' daughter Clara, so 1829 seems certain.
1829-10-28 no wmk Hampstead Margaret Hodson CL 612 [no comment]
[1829?]-11-01 no wmk Cavendish Sq Lady Byron CL 739 [no comment]
[1829-12?] II Smith & Son [Hampstead] Isabella Carr FL 136 [no comment]
[1829?]-12-14 II Smith & Son Hampstead John Gibson Lockhart CL 828 So dated in CL, but UC does not support this year. The letter seems to predate the 8 June 1829 letter in which Baillie offered a contribution for Lockhart's annual Christmas Box.
[1829]-12-23 Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Sir Thomas Lawrence CL 492 [no comment]
1829-12-25 Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Anne Elliott CL 466 [no comment]
[1829-1832] Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Lady Davy CL 527 Watermark and reference to Sir Walter Scott limits possible date.
[1829-1832] R Tassell / 1829 Hollybush Hill Mrs. Henry Coleridge CL 1223 Watermark and reference to 'Miss Jewsbury' limit possible date.
1830-01-05 Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Andrews Norton CL 916 [no comment]
1830-01-28 Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Lady Byron CL 741 [no comment]
[1830-01-29?] Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Lady Byron CL 740 CL places this letter before the Thursday 28 January [1830] letter to Lady Byron. It seems more likely that this 'friday morning' letter was written very soon after the other.
[1830?]-02-17 Lane & Co / 1829 Hollybush Hill Mrs. Bray FL 137 [no comment]
[1830-03-12] Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Lady Byron CL 742 Dated 13 March (a Saturday) in CL, but the letter was written "friday evening."

1830-03-17 Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Margaret Hodson CL 615 [no comment]
[1830-03-17] II Smith & Son, Key & Co Hampstead Lady Byron CL 744 No specific date in CL, but the postmark clearly reads MR 18 1830.
[1830]-03-22 Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Anne Elliott CL 469 [no comment]
[1830-03-23] Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Mary Montgomery CL 853 CL dates [1830?], but postmark clearly reads MR 23 1830.
[1830]-04-01 Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Lady Byron CL 746 No year in CL, but postmark clearly reads AP 2 1830.
1830-04-05 Lane & Co / 1829 Hampstead Lady Byron CL 748 [no comment]
1830-04-[06?] J Whatman / 1828 Hampstead Lady Byron CL 780 Undated in CL, but clearly follows soon after the 5 April 1830 letter to Lady Byron.
[1830]-05-20 John Hall / 1829 Hampstead Samuel Rogers CL 815 No year in CL. The NYPL Berg Collection suggests 1830, a year supported by UC and confirmed by Baillie's 28 May 1830 letter to Margaret Hodson.

[1830]-07-13 no wmk Hampstead Samuel Rogers CL 804 [no comment]
[1830-07-18] no wmk Hampstead Margaret Hodson CL 708 CL dates [1830 or later], but internal evidence makes 1830 certain. Letter is dated 'Sunday July 19th,' but July 19 was a Monday in 1830 (the closest Sunday July 19 is 1829, an impossibility). Baillie most likely slipped on the date rather than the day.
[1830?]-08-17 W King / 1829 Hampstead Mary Montgomery CL 902 CL dates [before 1844], but the only 17 August Tuesdays occur in 1830 and 1841. Watermark and reference to 'Ada' (rather than Lady Lovelace) suggest the earlier year.

[1830/1831?] R Tassell / 18 Hollybush Hill Sara Coleridge CL 1177 Watermark: R Tas / 18. Dated [after 1829] in CL, but reference to 'Baby' in the singular suggests that this dates sometime after October 1830 (birth of Sara Coleridge's first child) but almost certainly before July 1831 (birth of second).
