489. Robert Southey to Samuel Taylor Coleridge [fragment], 15 February 1800 ⁠* 

[The following summary is provided by Ernest Hartley Coleridge: ‘In a letter from Southey to Coleridge, dated February 15, 1800 (unpublished), he proposes the establishment of a Magazine with signed articles. But a “History of the Levelling Principle,” which Coleridge had suggested as a joint work, he would only publish anonymously.’] [1]
