32. To GEORGE and THOMAS KEATS. Sunday 〈21 Dec. 1817〉.

with John Scott and killed him. Strange that this quarrel and the consequent loss of life of Scott, the Editor of the "London Magazine", is not once alluded to [in the "Life, Letters", &c.], although the quarrel originated in the attack on Lockhart as the writer of the articles on the Cockney School, or as Editor of "Blackwood". Christie I had met before and have since the duel: and he appeared to be a mild amiable man.'--H.B.F.
