Keswick 30 Oct. 1819
My dear Sir
Inclosed are your credentials to Wordsworth, whom you will find in one of the loveliest spots in this country.
Your room is ready, − & you will make no farther tarriance at the Inn, than to give your baggage to the porter. We shall be truly glad to see you under this roof.
God bless you

Note on correspondent: Identification from content; Kenyon was an admirer of Wordsworth; moreover, at this time Southey was expecting a visit from Kenyon ‘every day’; see Southey to William Peachy, 8 November 1819, Letter 3385. BACK
