588. Robert Southey to Charles Watkin Williams Wynn, 6 July [1801] ⁠* 

Dear Wynn

Thank God once more in England! – I went to the Post Office – God knows thinking of very different people – & whom think you I met there? – Horse Campbell – on his way to Antigua to take possession of a living of 1000 a year. If the eye of Providence conducts him to the end of his voyage, his altitude may by that time be accurately ascertained.

Direct to Danvers for me. St Jamess Place Kingsdown. your letter will regulate my motions. more than ever I wish to make my Welsh expedition

God bless you

R Southey.

Monday. July 6. Falmouth.
