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

most pleasing to you in the confidence you will show them to no one. I have not run quite aground yet I hope, having written this morning to several people to whom I have lent money, requesting repayment. I shall hencefore shake off my indolent fits, and among other reformation be more diligent in writing to you and mind you always answer me. I shall be obliged to go out of town on Saturday1 and shall have no money till tomorrow, so I am very sorry to think I shall not be able to come to Walthamstow. The Head Mr Seve〈r〉n did of me is now too dear but here inclosed is a very capital Profile done by Mr Brown.2 I will write again on Monday or Tuesday-- Mr and Mrs Dilke are well.

Your affectionate Brother John --


133. To BENJAMIN ROBERT HAYDON. Thursday 17 June 〈1819〉.

Address: B. R. Haydon Esqre ∣ Lisson grove north ∣ Paddington

Imperfect postmarks: HAMPSTEAD and 17 JU.

Thursday Morning Wentworth Place

My dear Haydon,

I know you will not be quite prepared for this, because your Pocket must needs be very low having been at ebb tide so long: but what can I do? mine is lower. I was the day before yesterday much in want of Money: but some news I had yesterday has driven me into necessity. I went to Abbey's for some Cash, and he put into my hand a Letter from my Aunt's Solicitor containing the pleasant information that she was about to file a Bill in Chancery against us. Now in case of a defeat Abbey will be very undeservedly in the wrong box; so I could not ask him for

133. In this letter Keats was only seeking from Haydon the return of money lent: that the correspondence already given eventuated in a small loan to Haydon there can be no doubt, seeing that Keats gives his brother an account of the affair later on, in the Winchester journal-letter of September 1819, p. 418.

He was on the Portsmouth coach on Sunday, the 27th of June, see Letter 135, p. 355, so apparently he did not start for the Isle of Wight on Saturday, the 19th.

Probably the silhouette reproduced in William Sharp 'Life and Letters of Joseph Severn'.
