2964. Robert Southey to [Edward Nash], 4 April 1817*
My dear Sir
Senhouse has just left me, & we have finally decided upon taking our departure for London on Tuesday 22d – so that I shall look for you, God willing, on the 24th.  – I have been very much harassed about this house & property, which is likely to be sold under an Extent,  – & at one time I believed that this circumstance would prevent my journey. Indeed I had actually given it up. However there is no use in anticipating vexations, & I will let this deprive me of a journey from which I expect so much pleasure.
All here unite in love.
Keswick. 4 April. 1817.
