2419. Robert Southey to John Rickman, 9 May 1814 ⁠* 

My dear R.

I trouble you with two inclosures, – one for the Twopenny, – the other (which is doubled xxxx into letter-form) for the Exchequer.

The death of Danvers will cast a gloom over the recollections of half my life. [1]  – The loss of such a man is like an amputation – the wound heals, – but the limb will always be wanting.

Remember me to Mrs R. &

God bless you


May 9. 1814
