My dear Fanny

209. To FANNY KEATS. Wednesday 12 April 1820.

Address: Miss Keats ∣ Rd Abbey Esqre ∣ Walthamstow--

Postmarks: HAMPSTEAD and 12 AP 1820

Wentworth Place
12 April.

My dear Fanny--

Excuse these shabby scraps of paper I send you--and also from endeavouring to give you any consolation just at present for though my health is tolerably well I am too nervous to enter into any discussion in which my heart is concerned. Wait patiently and take care of your health being especially carefull to keep yourself from low spirits which are great enemies to health. You are young and have only need of a little patience. I am not yet able to bear the fatigue of coming to Walthamstow though I have been to Town once or twice. I have thought of taking a change of air. You shall hear from me immediately on my moving any where. I will ask Mrs Dilke to pay you a visit if the weather holds fine, the first time I see her. The Dog is being attended to like a Prince.

Your affectionate Brother
John

There is little doubt that this letter was written between the 1st and 12th of April 1820, and was intended as an acknowledgement of the due receipt of 'the Dog'--probably to go back to Walthamstow by the person who brought the dog. On the 1st Keats wrote to his sister to send her spaniel to Hampstead, and on the 12th that it was 'being attended to like a Prince'.
