Dating note: This unsigned note is in another hand, probably Henry Herbert Southey’s, and was written at a time when Robert Southey expected to arrive in London in late April 1820. He was delayed, and did not arrive in town until 1 May 1820, thus missing the annual dinner of the Royal Academy of Arts on 29 April. BACK
