587. Robert Southey to Charles
Danvers, 6 July
Thank God we are safe on shore. a thirteen
days passage & all variety of weather. tomorrow as soon
as we can pass our trunks thro the Custom House we set off –
& may perhaps reach Bristol on Thursday night – if – as
we ought – we can make it but one days journey from Exeter.
I have no time to write more – tired with the
Custom house & somewhat surly at its heavy extortions I
am glad to see supper ready & bed time at hand. our love
to Mrs D. I hope we shall see her well.
Monday July 6.
