The Letters of John Keats

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

any more money, nor can I till the affair is decided; and if it goes against him I must in conscience make over to him what little he may have remaining. My purpose is now to make one more attempt in the Press--if that fail, 'ye hear no more of me' as Chaucer says1--Brown has lent me some money for the present. Do borrow or beg some how what you can for me. Do not suppose I am at all uncomfortable about the matter in any other way than as it forces me to apply to the needy. I could not send you those lines, for I could not get the only copy of them before last Saturday evening. I sent them Mr Elmes on Monday. I saw Monkhouse on sunday--he told me you were getting on with the Picture. I would have come over to you to day, but I am fully employed--

Your's ever sincerely John Keats--


134. To FANNY BRAWNE. Thursday 1 July 1819.

Address: Miss Brawne Wentworth Place Hampstead Middx. Postmarks: NEWPORT and 3 JY 1819

Shanklin, Isle of Wight, Thursday.

My dearest Lady,

I am glad I had not an opportunity of sending off a Letter which I wrote for you on Tuesday night--'twas too much like one out of Ro〈u〉sseau's Heloise.2 I am more reasonable this morning. The morning is the only proper time for me to write to a beautiful Girl whom I love so much: for at night, when the lonely day has closed, and the lonely, silent, unmusical Chamber is waiting to receive me as into a Sepulchre, then believe me my passion gets entirely the sway, then I would not have you see those R〈h〉apsodies which I once thought it impossible I should ever give way to, and which I have often laughed at in another, for fear you should 〈think me3〉 either too un

1
Probably a reminiscence or intentional avoidance of 'Ye gete no more of me', 'Legend of Good Women', l. 1557.
2
Cf. Letter 191, p. 471.
3
These two words are wanting in the original. As regards laughter at lovers, see what Keats wrote to his brother George in the Winchester journal-letter, before the 'nonsense verses' about a Party of Lovers, both on p. 401.
