2906. Robert Southey to Humphrey Senhouse, 27 January *
Keswick. 27 Jany.
I thought to have been with you the beginning of this week, but Owen of Lanark  is coming here for the purpose of seeing me, on his way to London, & announces himself for some undetermined day. So I must let January run out, – & on Tuesday in next week, if no unforeseen evil should intervene we purpose to be with you.
The birds are singing as if it were spring, – the polyanthuses are in blossom, & the winter is as unnatural as the summer was. This I fear looks ill for the ensuing season.
Remember us to Miss Wood  & believe me
yrs most truly
