SD932.  William Wordsworth & Mary Wordsworth to John Kenyon

Published in The Brownings’ Correspondence, 4, 338 (in part).


17th August [1838] [1]

My dear Friend

I have been so much pleased with the power of knowledge displayed in Miss Barret[t]’s vol of Poems which you were so kind as to send Mr W. some time ago, that I am desirous to see her translation of Eschylus. Cd you send me a copy thro’ Mr Moxon, & tell me also where it is to be bought—as two of my acquaintances wish to purchase it.

We hear of your thro’ that kindest of creatures H. Robinson—but not a word about your coming down—as you have given us leave to hope you might have done—but on the contrary that you are going off with your Brother—a thousand good wishes attend you both & pray remember us to him most kindly.

Ever Affly yours

Wm & M. Wordsworth
