Hampstead Tuesday Aft.

My dear Charles,

When shall we see each other again? In Heaven or in Hell, or in deep Places? In crooked Lane are we to meet or on Salisbury Plain? Or jumbled together at Drury Lane Door? For my part I know not where it is to be except that it may be possible to take place at Mr Novello's tomorrow evening whither Mr Hunt and myself are going and wher〈e〉 Mr Novello requested Mr Hunt to invite you per Letter the which I offered to do. So we shall meet you there tomorrow evening--Mr H. has got a great way into a Poem on the Nymphs,1 and has said a number of beautiful things I have also written a few Lines and a Sonnet on Rimini2 which I will copy for you against tomorrow--Mr H. desires to be remembered to you.

Your's sincerely

John Keats--

N.B. we shall have a Hymn of Mr H.'s3 composing 4 Voices--go it!

Amy Lowell, rightly I think, attributed this note to the period before Keats left London for the Isle of Wight on 14 April 1817. It was not sent through the post and was possibly delivered by a messenger who had brought a letter from the publishers. The 'L. C. S.' suggests Lamb's Conduit Street, where Reynolds lived.

Cowden Clarke has noted on the original letter, 'This evidently should be "N" ( Novello)', but see Dr. H. S. Milford's note on the hymn "'To the Spirit great and good'" in "'The Poetical Works of Leigh Hunt'", Oxford University Press, 1923, p. 728, where he quotes from a letter from Vincent Novello to Hunt, 'the little hymn-tune which you composed in 1817',--adding that he ( Novello) 'notes that the words were written and the melody and bass composed by Leigh Hunt'.
