99. To FANNY KEATS. Friday 18 Dec. 1818

Address: Miss Keats ∣ Miss Tuckey's ∣ Walthamstow

Postmark not recorded.

My dear Fanny.

So much time has passed with me this last year, without my having had power to employ it--which is absolutely necessary--that I am glad to take advantage of the present time to study and write a little. that is the reason I have not been to see you--However if Monday the frost continue I will endeavour to be up early and cut across the fields.

Your ever affectionate Brother
John--


100. To RICHARD WOODHOUSE. Friday 18 Dec. 1818.

Address: Richd Woodhouse, Esqre ∣ Taylor and Hessey ∣ Fleet Street--

Postmarks: HAMPSTEAD and 18 DE 1818.

Wentworth Place Friday Morn--

My dear Woodhouse

I am greatly obliged to you.1 I must needs feel flattered by making an impression on a set of Ladies--I should be content to do so in meretricious romance verse if they alone and not Men were to judge.2 I should like very much to know those Ladies--tho' look here Woodhouse-- --I have a new leaf to turn over--I must work--I must read --I must write--I am unable to affrod time for new acquaintances--I am scarcely able to do my duty to those I have. Leave the matter to chance. But do not forget to give my Rembrs to you〈r〉 Cousin.

Yours most sincerely
John Keats
