speaks to you--Be as happy as you can. Think of me and for my sake be cheerful. Believe me my dear Brother and Sister

Your anxious and affectionate Brother
John.

This day1 is my Birth day--

All our friends have been anxious in their enquiries and all send their rem〈em〉brances


95. To FANNY KEATS. Thursday 5 Nov. 1818.

Address: Miss Keats ∣ Miss Tuckey's ∣ Walthamstow--

Postmarks: HAMPSTEAD and NO 5 1818.

My dear Fanny,

I have seen Mr Abbey three times about you, and have not been able to get his consent--

He says that once more between this and the Holy-days will be sufficient. What can I do? I should have been at Walthamstow several times, but I am not able to leave Tom for so long a time as that would take me. Poor Tom has been rather better these 4 last days in consequence of obtaining a little rest a nights. Write to me as often as you can, and believe that I would do any thing to give you any pleasure--we must as yet wait patiently.

Your affectionate Brother
John --


96. To JAMES RICE. Tuesday 24 Nov. 1818.

Address: Mr James Rice ∣ Poland Street--

Postmarks: HAMPSTEAD and NO 25 1818.

Well Walk--Novr 24.

My dear Rice,

Your amende honorable, I must call 'un surcroit d'amitié for I am not at all sensible of any thing but that you were unfortunately engaged and I was unfortunately in a hurry. I completely understand your feeling in this mistake, and find in it that ballance of comfort which remains after regretting your uneasiness. I have long made up my Mind to take for granted the genuine hearted
