164. Fragment to WILLIAM HASLAM. Tuesday 2 Nov. 〈1819〉. Address and postmark not recorded.

Wentworth Place November 2

My disposition is of so careless a nature that it is continually tormenting me for my neglect of matters of consequence. If you can command £30 you will cure me of a disease which at intervals comes upon me like a fever fit.


165. To FANNY KEATS. Wednesday 17 Nov. 1819.

Address: Miss Keats ∣ Rd Abbey's Esqre ∣ Pancras Lane ∣ Queen Street Cheapside

Postmarks: HAMPSTEAD and 17 NO 1819

Wednesday Morn My dear Fanny,

I received your Letter yesterday Evening and will obey it tomorrow. I would come to day but I have been to Town so frequently on Georges Business it makes me wish to employ to day at Hampstead. So I say Thursday without fail. I have no news at all entertaining and if I had I should not have time to tell them as I wish to send this by the morning Post.

Your affectionate Brother

John--


166. To JOHN TAYLOR. Wednesday 17 Nov. 1819.

Address: Jno Taylor Esqr ∣ Fleet Str

Postmarks: HAMPSTEAD and 17 NO 1819

Wentworth Place--Wednesday

164. This letter was sold in the Charles W. Frederickson sale in New
York in May 1897, and again in the John H. V. Arnold sale, New
York, April 1904. I have reason to believe that in 1881 it was in the
hands of an English dealer who described it as '1 1/2 pages 8vo'. address
and seal': in the New York catalogues it figures as '2 pages 8vo'. The
extract above was contributed to 'Notes and Queries', April 14, 1934,
p. 257, by Mr. John Howard Birss.
