From this I think it is evident that Henry Nelson Coleridge intended what was published as a Supplement to the Biographia Literaria to be a Life of Coleridge, either supplementary to the Biographia Literaria or as an independent narrative, in which most of the letters published by Cottle in 1837 and unpublished letters to Poole and other correspondents were to form the chief material.

...Regan Paul (16, less 7 of those which appeared in Macmillans Magazine, 1864) 9 1878, Frasers Magazine (letters to Matilda Betham) 5 1880, Macmillans Edition of Coleridges Poems 1 1882, Journals of Caroline Fox 1 1884, Life of Alaric Watts 5 1886, Brandls Life of Coleridge 10 1887, Memorials of Coleorton 20 1888, Thomas Poole and his Friends (Mrs.
