954. Robert Southey to John Rickman, [c. 16 June 1804] *
I do not like making so free with you as to make free with the Emperor of the Franks  for my own convenience. but the inclosed relates to the drawings for Madoc,  & it would neither be proper to tax Duppa with a double letter on my business nor yet decorous to say post paid on the direction.
There was a line in Madoc about a cat-a-mountain – which so many objected to that I have altered it to some mountain marten in honour <remembrance> of your favourite.
