2380. Robert Southey to William Gifford, 18 February 1814 *
Keswick. Feby. 18. 1814.
My dear Sir
I send you an account of the Nicobars  to which I have brought all the knowledge I could find.
I take the liberty of inclosing a packet for Grosvenor Bedford, that the same potential direction may carry it free.  – The snow has left us, & winter tho it has seldom been so rigorous, was never more beautiful than it is among these mountains at this time.
Believe me my dear Sir
Yrs very truly
