My dear Hunt,
You will be glad to hear I am going to delay a little time at Mrs Brawnes. I hope to see you whenever you can get time for I feel really attach'd to you for your many sympathies with me, and patience at my lunes. Will you send by the Bearess Lucy Vaughn Lloyd. My best remes to Mrs Hunt.
Your affectionate friend
From LEIGH HUNTto KEATS.2 〈 August 1820.〉
Address: John Keats Esqre | Mrs Brawn's | Wentworth Place
I shall see you this afternoon, & most probably every day. You judge rightly when you think I shall be glad at your putting up awhile where you are, instead of that solitary place. There are humanities in the house; & if wisdom loves to live with children round her knees (the tax-gatherer apart), sick wisdom, I think, should love to live with arms about its waist. I need not say how you gratify me by the impulse which led you to write a particular sentence in your letter, for you must have seen by this time how much I am attached to yourself.____________________
