679. Robert Southey to Charles
Danvers, 24 May
Monday 24 May.
My dear Danvers
Our places are taken in the one pound
three-night coach for tomorrow. at four in the afternoon we
get in at our own door – and I should hope that before three
o clock on Wednesday a
Bristol Hackney Coach may set us down at yours. We are
heartily rejoiced at leaving London – tho I leave books
enough & friends enough to regret.
I have enquired about Kings instruments
they cost 2.18–0 – but the maker had none made, nor could he
make any in time for my departure. I did not venture to order them as that
may at any time be done by letter.
We were foolish and faulty in not
recollecting to send the cushion by Martha  – this fine weather
makes us remember it. Our love to Mrs
God bless you –
Will you let them know in Stokes Croft
that Mrs Lovell is coming.
