2503. Robert Southey to Grosvenor Charles Bedford, 18 November 1814 *
My dear G.
Drop the inclosed for me on your way to Stafford Row. – I think you had better delay your reviewal of Roderick till the number after next;  – first because it may stand in the way of He the Docstors book; – there may be an objection to have the name of Southey at the head of two articles: & a good word in that quarter may be to him of essential advantage. I can wait without impatience & without injury. And secondly there should be but one poetical figurante in a number, & it is Wordsworths turn to figure first  – Remember I am very very solicitous that the Docstor should have a lift –
