Watson also wrote a postscript to the letter from E. Nairne, 7 Dec. 1781, 13.N.1. 13.W.10 is accompanied by a letter to Watson from Sir William Watson Snr, Nov. 1781. Either 13.W.19 or 13.W.20 originally contained WH’s autograph dedication to George III of an illustration of the ‘Georgium Sidus’ for the Philosophical transactions. This note – presumably returned after Watson’ inspection – was taken out of the letter in 1915 or 1916, framed and hung for a time in the Council Room at Burlington House. It is now kept with Watson’s letters.
