Printed his Specimens in 1811 "to enable the author to defray the charges of paper, printing, &c., to pay off arrears for the maintenance of his infant child...[and] to extricate Mr. Blacket, himself, from embarrassment occasioned by the very long sickness, death and burial of his wife". At burial "Joseph Blackett, age: 24, Poet of singular Promise, consumption".
