713. Robert Southey to Charles Watkin Williams Wynn, 1 September 1802 *
I have lost sight of you for some time – but will write a random shot to tell you that I have a daughter. She was born yesterday evening & will bear the names of my mother & of her own – Margaret Edith – I cannot spare either. All is as well as possible.
When I know where you are I will write again & tell you why my resolution is made taken – to fix at Keswick. – I am quite well – & as you may suppose heartily happy. By the way I learn from Taunton  that Lord Somervilles  death without heirs male (it has been decided) would leave me the reversionary sum of 9000 £.
God bless you Wynn
