The Letters of John Keats

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

Endymion printed that I may forget it and proceed. I have coppied the 3rd Book and have begun the 4th. On running my Eye over the Proofs--I saw one Mistake I will notice it presently and also any others if there be any. There should be no comma in 'the raft branch down sweeping from a tall ash top'.1 I have besides made one or two alterations and also altered the 13 Line Page 32 to make sense of it as you will see. I will take care the Printer shall not trip up my Heels. There should be no dash after Dryope in this Line 'Dryope's lone lulling of her Child.2 Remember me to Percy Street.

Your sincere and obligd friend John Keats--

P.S. You shall have a sho〈r〉t Preface in good time--


52. To TAYLOR AND HESSEY. 〈Feb. or March 1818.〉

Address: Messrs Taylor & Hessey. No postmark.

My dear Sirs,

I am this morning making a general clearance of all lent Books--all--I am affraid I do not return all--I must jog your memories about them--however with many thanks here are the remainder--which I am affraid are not worth so much now as they were six months ago--I mean the fashions may have changed--

Yours truly John Keats.


53. To BENJAMIN BAILEY. Friday 〈13 March 1818〉.

Address: Mr B. Bailey ∣ Magdalen Hall ∣ Oxford--

Postmark: TEIGNMOUTH, undated.

Teignmouth Friday

My dear Bailey,

When a poor devil is drowning, it is said he comes thrice to the surface, ere he makes his final sink--if however, even at the third rise, he can manage to catch hold of a piece of weed or rock, he stands a fair chance, as I hope I do now, of being saved. I have sunk twice in our Correspondence, have risen twice and been too idle, or something worse, to extricate myself. I have sunk the third time and just now risen again at this two of the Clock P.M. and saved myself
