Dear Richd,

John begs that you would be so good as to send him 20£ by return of post he is sorry to trouble you with this Letter but when he wrote last he did not think he should want this money so soon.3 John and Dorothy are both well, and I am tolerable. I hope to be able shortly to write something satisfactory upon the subject of Montague. Pinney has undertaken to pay the annuity.

  • Your affectionate Br     
  • W. Wordsworth
