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

150. — To Fanny Keats.

My dear Fanny — I had intended to delay seeing you till a Book which I am now publishing was out,116 expecting that to be the end of this week when I would have brought it to Walthamstow: on receiving your Letter of course I set myself to come to town, but was not able, for just as I was setting out yesterday morning a slight spitting of blood came on which returned rather more copiously at night. I have slept well and they tell me there is nothing material to fear. I will send my Book soon with a Letter which I have had from George who is with his family quite well.

Your affectionate Brother

John ——.

116 The volume containing Lamia, Isabella, The Eve of St. Agnes, Hyperion, and the Odes.
