287. Robert Southey to Grosvenor Charles Bedford, 5 February 1798 *
Will you fix an early day for dining at Grays Inn. We leave town next week, & as I have seen you so frequently since we have resided here, I shall of course feel much at the seperation. let me not forget to thank you for Musæus. 
Edith has been very unwell – I hope better air, & regular exercise will restore her health. I suppose Grosvenor, in about a fortnight we shall be very intimate again – as we shall be a hundred miles asunder.
I wish to keep the term this week.
Monday. 5 Feby. 98.
