SD1288. William Wordsworth to Edward Moxon
As published in The Brownings’ Correspondence, 14, 365 (in part).
12 Octr– 1846
My dear Mr Moxon,
Thanks for your Letter– …
Miss Barrett, I am pleased to learn, is so much recovered as to have taken to herself a Husband. Her choice is a very able man, and I trust that it will be a happy union, not doubting that they will speak more intelligibly to each other than, notwithstanding their abilities, they have yet done to the Public.
