The Letters of John Keats

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

112. To WILLIAM MAYOR. Thursday 4 Feb. 1819.

Address: Mr Wm Mayor ∣ Gibbons Buildings ∣ Islington.

Postmarks: HAMPSTEAD, CAMDEN TOWN and 4 FE 1819.

Wentworth Place Hampstead--

My dear Mayor,

I have not been entirely well for some time--all from my own fault of exposing myself to the Weather contrary to medical orders--I am now getting better: but cannot yet venture out. Believe me I am very sorry for it. In about a fortnight I will see you either in Town or at Islington. In the mean time, could you spare a day for Hampste〈a〉d? You can have a bed--Do come by the coach, and enquire your way through Pond street, to Mr Brown's, Wentworth Place--This will be charitable to one not ill enough to forget out-of-doors.

Remember me to your Cousin--and to all whom I may know--If C.C.C. should chance to be with you--give my particular greeting to him; with the assurance of my constant idea of him--notwithstanding our long separation and my antipathy = indolentissimum to letter writing.

Yours truly John Keats


113. To FANNY KEATS. Thursday 〈4 or 11〉 Feb. 1819.

Address: Miss Keats.

No postmark: probably sent by coach.

Wentworth Place-- Feby. Thursday--

My dear Fanny,

Your Letter to me at Bedhampton hurt me very much,-- What objection can the〈r〉e be to your receiving a Letter

112 William Mayor was apparently living with his father at Sebbons (not Gibbons) Buildings at this time. He was a pupil of Haydon's in whose studio he met the Landseers, William Bewick, and George Lance. About 1822 he started travelling on the continent where in the course of a long life he acquired a fine collection of paintings representative of the continental schools. He was a dealer as well as a collector, and when he died in 1874 his pictures were sold and many of them passed into Sir Edward Poynter's collection.
