85. To JANE REYNOLDS. Tuesday 1 September 1818.

Address: Miss Reynolds Little Britain--

Postmark: 1 SP 1818.

Well Walk Septr 1st.

My dear Jane,

Certainly your kind note would rather refresh than than trouble me, and so much the more would your coming if as you say, It could be done without agitating my Brother too much. Receive on your Hearth our deepest thanks for your Solicitude concerning us.

I am glad John is not hurt, but gone safe1 into Devonshire--I shall be in great expectation of his Letter--but the promise of it in so anxious and friendly a way I prize more than a hundred. I shall be in town to day on some business with my guardian2 'as was' with scarce a hope of being able to call on you. For these two last days Tom has been more cheerful; you shall hear again soon how he will be--

Remember us particularly to your Mother.

Your sincere friend John Keats-----
