had the good chance to meet at Louisville with a School- fellow of ours. You may expect me within three days. I am writing to night several notes concerning this to many of my friends.1 Good night! god bless you.

John Keats --


125. To WILLIAM HASLAM. Thursday 13 May 1819.

Address: Mr William Haslam ∣ Frampton & Co. ∣ Leadenhall Street.2

Postmarks: HAMPSTEAD and 13 MY 1819.

My dear Haslam,

We have news at last--and tolerably good--they have not gone to the Settlement--they are both in good Health --I read the letter to Mrs Wylie to day and requested her after her Sons had read it--they would enclose it to you immediately which was faithfully promised. Send it me like Lightning that I may take it to Walthamstow.

Yours ever and amen John Keats

As far as I am aware, this and the next are all of the 'several notes' which have as yet come to the surface; but it is possible that others may be extant, and will be brought to light sooner or later.

This address suggests the explanation of Keats's statements that the Framptons behaved well to Haslam after his father's death, and that he had got his father's situation (p. 319). It would seem that father and son were both employed by a firm of Framptons in Leadenhall Street. ' Frampton & Co.' I have not traced; but old directories reveal the existence of Frampton and Sons, wholesale grocers and tea- dealers of 34 Leadenhall Street; and, as Richard Abbey was in that line of business, Keats's acquaintance with Haslam would thus be accounted for: see Letter 94, p. 230.

126. I have not come upon anything explanatory of Haslam's treatment of the letter entrusted to him by his friend. Nevertheless, despite this incident and another contretemps about a letter in August (see p. 375), Keats in November was ready to borrow money from him and in January 1820 wrote of him as 'a very good fellow indeed' who 'has been excessively anxious and kind to us', see Letters 164 and 172, pp. 439, 449.
