Hampstead Decr 31st

My dear Haydon,

I forgot on Sunday to ask you for Cripps's direction as you might chance to know--on monday you were out in the Sun. I shall be with you shortly to have a talk about him. I thoughtlessly gave you a promise for Sunday-- now I have just received a 'yes' from a friend of mine to pass that said day here--so be lenient and your petitioner shall ever pray &c I met Wordsworth on Hampstead Heath this Morning.1

Your affectionate friend John Keats


34. To GEORGE and THOMAS KEATS. Monday 5 Jan. 1818.

Address: Messrs Keats ∣ Post Office ∣ Teignmouth ∣ Devonshire.

Postmark: 5 JA 1818.

Featherstone Buildgs Monday

My dear Brothers,

I ought to have written before, and you should have had a long Letter last week, but I undertook the Champion for Reynolds who is at Exeter. I wrote two articles, one on the Drury Lane Pantomime, the other on the Covent Garden New Tragedy,2 which they have not put in. The one they have inserted is so badly punc〈t〉uated that, you perceive, I am determined never to write more without some care in that particular. Wells tells me, that you are licking your Chops, Tom, in expectation of my Book coming out. I am sorry to say I have not begun my corrections yet: tomorrow I set out. I called on Sawrey3 this morning. He did not seem to be at all out at any thing
