The Collected Letters of Robert Southey Part 1: 1791-1797, Edited By Lynda Pratt

246. Robert Southey to Grosvenor Charles Bedford, [c. sometime between 10–19 August 1797] ⁠* 

My dear Grosvenor

I have but time to say that is still possible, tho not likely, that my Mother may live with me. that we may perhaps find a difficulty in furnishing our own apartment on our return. here you see are two obstacles which cannot be immediately removed. I should much wish to domesticate with you if they were out of the way.

God bless you.

Robert Southey.
