109. To BENJAMIN ROBERT HAYDON. 〈Jan. 1819.〉

No address or postmark.

Wentworth Place.

My dear Haydon,

We are very unlucky--I should have stopped to dine with you, but I knew I should not have been able to leave you in time for my plaguy sore throat; which is getting well--

I shall have a little trouble in procuring the Money and a great ordeal to go through--No trouble indeed to any one else--or ordeal either. I mean I shall have to go to town some thrice, and stand in the Bank an hour or two --to me worse than any thing in Dante--. I should have less chance with the people around me than Orpheus had with the Stones--I have been writing a little now and then lately: but nothing to speak off--being discontented and as it were moulting--yet I do not think I shall ever come to the rope or the Pistol: for after a day or two's melancholy, although I smoke more and more my own insufficiency--I see by little and little more of what is to be done, and how it is to be done, should I ever be able to do it-- On my Soul there should be some reward for that continual 'agonie ennuiyeuse.' I was thinking of going into Hampshire for a few days: I have been delaying it longer than I intended. You shall see me soon; and do not be at all anxious, for this time I really will do, what I never did before in my life, business in good time, and properly-- With respect to the Bond--it may be a satisfaction to you, to let me have it: but as you love me do not let there be any mention of interest, although we are mortal men--and bind ourselves for fear of death--

Your's for ever

John Keats --

From BENJAMIN ROBERT HAYDON to KEATS. Thursday 14 Jan. 1819.

No address or postmark.

My dear Keats, Jay--14 1819

Your letter was every thing that is kind, affectionate and Friendly. I depend on it; it has relieved my anxious mind.--The 'agonie
