10th [June 1830]

My dear Mr Gordon,

I am up to the ears in company and engagements. My Daughter after whom you so kindly inquire is convalescent, and with our care will I trust do well. I did not like to lose a Post in reply to Mr P's2 Letter. This morning by very good luck a Gentleman has called upon me from London (and is still here) who was a year upon the Rhine, to learn the G——Language. from him I have collected much that will be useful to Wm. Pray excuse my writing more at present.

  • Ever faithfully yours     
  • W. Wordsworth  

There is a young Person of the name of Moxon who has just set up as a Bookseller in New Bond Street3 (He is a very respectable Poet also). He is Patronized by Mr Rogers, and I believe him to be a truly liberal and worthy Man. Be so kind as to look in upon him at your leisure, mentioning my name. Mr Southey is interested in pg 282his well doing and will assist him to the best of his power—Adieu—

Did I ask whether you could assist us in communicating with Wm upon the Rhine, by Post?
