Letters of John Keats to His Family and Friends, by John Keats

71. — To Fanny Keats.

My dear Fanny — Poor Tom is about the same as when you saw him last; perhaps weaker — were it not for that I should have been over to pay you a visit these fine days. I got to the stage half an hour before it set out and counted the buns and tarts in a Pastry-cook’s window and was just beginning with the Jellies. There was no one in the Coach who had a Mind to eat me like Mr. Sham-deaf. I shall be punctual in enquiring about next Thursday —

Your affectionate Brother

John.
