Save to active project

few days, on business for Glegg--I have not seen him.--Mrs Scott desires her compliments to you and Tom. I have repeatedly called on Taylor & Hessey and have never found them at home, or you should long since have known the progress of your book. Brown has I understand written to you and given you the pleasant information that the printer's are in immediate want of the Fourth book and preface. By the time you have received this I have no doubt but T & H will have received them.--The inclosed 20 pounds No. 834 dated 3rd Feby-- 1818, will reach you before you are quite aground. I am about paying your's as well as Tom's bills, of which I shall keep regular accounts and for the sake of justice and a future proper understanding I intend calculating the probable amount Tom and I are indebted to you, something of this kind must be done, or at the end of two or three years we shall be all at sixes and sevens, let me know when you want Money. I have paid Hodgkinson who desires his best rems.--I'll write Tom soon give my love to him--rems to Miss M & C--and love to the Miss J's1--Miss Wylie as usual desires her respects to you, and best wishes to Tom--R Draper has been teazing throughout the writing of this to my great annoyance--

Good bye for the present

Your most affectionate Brother

Teignmouth Saturday Morn--

My dear Sirs,

I had no idea of your getting on so fast--I thought of bringing my 4th Book to Town all in good-time for you, especially after the late unfortunate chance.

I did not however for my own sake delay finishing the copy which was done a few days after my arrival here. I send it off to day, and will tell you in a Postscript at what time to send for it from the Bull and Mouth or other Inn. You will find the Preface and dedication, and the title Page as I should wish it to stand--for a ramance is a fine

Yrs truly

J. H. Reynolds

I believe I must take Wordsworths leech gatherer into keeping.


over--unless it is in hand, or at the Printers--I will return it to night. I am as low, as bad company. Have you a proof of Keats' Poem for a body.

No doubt the Misses Jeffrey, with whom the brothers were on very friendly terms.
