1173. Robert Southey to John Rickman, 11 April  *
Norwich. Friday 11 April.
My dear Rickman
I have not apprized you earlier of my movements because Wordsworth would be my Precursor, & therefore it was needless. My place is taken for Sunday afternoon in a coach which being four hours longer on the road than the mail, has the advantage of arriving in town at a more seasonable hour. So, if no xx unforeseen impediment prevent, I hope & expect to be safely landed with you about twelve on Monday morning.
God bless you
