233. To CHARLES BROWN. 〈Sunday 20 Aug. 1820.〉

Address and postmark not recorded.

My dear Brown,

You may not have heard from -----, or -----, or in any way, that an attack of spitting of blood, and all its weakening consequences, has prevented me from writing for so long a time. I have matter now for a very long letter, but not news: so I must cut everything short. I shall make some confession, which you will be the only person, for many reasons, I shall trust with. A winter in England would, I have not a doubt, kill me; so I have resolved to go to Italy, either by sea or land. Not that I have any great hopes of that, for, I think, there is a core of disease in me not easy to pull out. . . . If I should die. . . . I shall be obliged to set off in less than a month. Do not, my dear Brown, teaze yourself about me. You must fill up your time as well as you can, and as happily. You must think of my faults as lightly as you can. When I have health I will bring up the long arrears of letters I owe you. . . . My book has had good success among the literary people, and I believe has a moderate sale. I have seen very few people we know. ----- has visited me more than any one. I would go to ----- and make some inquiries after you, if I could with any bearable sensation; but a person I am not quite used to causes an oppression on my chest. Last week I received a letter from Shelley, at Pisa, of a very kind nature, asking me to pass the winter with him. Hunt has behaved very kindly to me. You shall hear from me again shortly.

Your affectionate friend
John Keats

My dear Fanny,

It will give me great Pleasure to see you here, if you

____________________
233. If p heard from Shelley on the 13th, as indicated in his letter of the 14th to Fanny Keats, it may reasonably be supposed that this letter to Brown was written about the 20th of August 1820 from Hampstead.
