The Collected Letters of Robert Southey Part 3

1422. Robert Southey to Grosvenor Charles Bedford, 9 February 1808 ⁠* 

My dear Grosvenor

I have a daughter Emma born into the world this afternoon, & a bouncing daughter she is.

You will see me in about 18 days, for I shall be a fortnight on the road. If meantime there be any of thing forthcoming from the Exchequer to the most loyal & deserving of his Majestys pensioners, do you forward it as tho I were at home, – it will come seasonably to an empty purse –

God bless you


Feby 9. 1808.
