By Maurice Buxton Forman; John Keats | Go to book overview
Save to active project

not to be and my only hope for the concluding difficulties of my Picture lie〈s〉 in you--I leave this in case you are not at home. Do let me hear from you how you are, and when I shall get my bond ready for you, for that is the best way for me to do, at two years--

I am Dear Keats

Your affectionate Friend

Jany. 7th 1819. B. R. Haydon

107. To BENJAMIN ROBERT HAYDON. Monday 〈11 Jan. 1819〉.

No address or postmark.

Wentworth Place

Monday aft

My dear Haydon,

I have been out this morning, and did not therefore see your note till this minute, or I would have gone to town directly--it is now too late for to day. I will be in town early tomorrow, and trust I shall be able to lend you assistance noon or night. I was struck with the improvement in the architectural part of your Picture--and, now I think on it, I cannot help wond〈e〉ring you should have had it so poor, especially after the Soloman. Excuse this dry bones of a note: for though my pen may grow cold, I should be sorry my Life should freeze--

Your affectionate friend

John Keats

108. To FANNY KEATS. 〈Jan. 1819.〉

Address: Miss Keats Rd Abbey's EsqreWalthamstow--

Postmark illegible.

Wentworth Place--

My dear Fanny,

I send this to Walthamstow for fear you should not be at Pancras Lane when I call tomorrow--before going into Hampshire for a few days--it will not be more I assure you--You may think how disappointed I am in not being able to see you more and spend more time with you than I do--but how can it be helped?

The thought is a continual vexation to me--and often hinders me from reading and composing--Write to me as often as you can--and believe me

Your affectionate Brother
