My dear Hunt,

You will be glad to hear I am going to delay a little time at Mrs Brawnes. I hope to see you whenever you can get time for I feel really attach'd to you for your many sympathies with me, and patience at my lunes. Will you send by the Bearess Lucy Vaughn Lloyd. My best remes to Mrs Hunt.

John Keats.

From LEIGH HUNTto KEATS.2August 1820.〉

Address: John Keats Esqre | Mrs Brawn's | Wentworth Place

No postmark.

Mortimer Terrace.

Giovanni mio,

I shall see you this afternoon, & most probably every day. You judge rightly when you think I shall be glad at your putting up awhile where you are, instead of that solitary place. There are humanities in the house; & if wisdom loves to live with children round her knees (the tax-gatherer apart), sick wisdom, I think, should love to live with arms about its waist. I need not say how you gratify me by the impulse which led you to write a particular sentence in your letter, for you must have seen by this time how much I am attached to yourself.

The picture referred to is recorded by Frederic Wordsworth Haydon to have been 'The Raising of Lazarus' now in the Tare Gallery. 230. This may well be one of the 'many more' letters he told Taylor he had 'to do' in Letter 228. The heading 'An Amyntas' refers to Hunt 'Amyntas, A Tale of the Woods; from the Italian of Torquato Tasso', published in July 1820 and dedicated to Keats. ' Lucy Vaughan Lloyd' was the pen-name under which he intended to publish 'The Cap and Bells'.

This letter was first printed in 'Papers of a Critic', vol. 1, pp. 9-10, and was evidently perfect when Sir Charles Dilke copied it. From the holograph in the Keats Museum, Hampstead, the words after 'I think' and up to the word 'particular' are now missing.
