1769.  EBB to John Kenyon

As published in The Brownings’ Correspondence, 9, 242.


Monday. [25 November 1844][1]

To prove to you, our well beloved cousin, that Flush is not the only person in the world capable of making a mistake about a book, I return to you the ‘Guide book’ which came to me this morning instead of another volume with a red cover.

Also, I have had a note from Mr Moxon in return for the copy of the American edition which it appeared to me right to offer him,—& he sends me his sonnets,—& says, he is “happy to let me know that the poems are selling very well.” This is excellent news. I did not ask for it—I did not dare.

Ever most affectionately yours


Address: John Kenyon Esqr / 40 York Terrace / Regent’s Park.

Publication: None traced.

Manuscript: Wellesley College.

1. Dated by reference to Moxon’s note and gift to which EBB responded in the previous letter.
