Dear Mr Moxon

In the sixty one pounds enclosed I send you the amount of my debt to you in the matter of the poems, & take the opportunity of thanking you for the trouble & interest which make the further obligation—remaining, dear sir,

1. In all probability this letter was written in late August to fulfill a contractual agreement that came due after the first anniversary of the publication of EBB’s Poems, 13 August 1845. She tells RB in letter 2020 “that just as I was enclosing my sixty-pound debt to Mr. Moxon, I did actually and miraculously receive a remittance of fourteen pounds from … New York.”
