[In M. W.'s hand]

[late Dec. 1836]

My dear Sir,

I enclose the reply which I have recd from Sir G. Beaumont upon the application for the Bust.3 I am afraid it will not be practicable upon the plan proposed—but I hope Sir F. Chantrey will be able to remove Sir George's apprehensions of injury to the Bust.

We have not heard from Keswick for a week—before that time our accounts of poor Mrs Southey were not more unfavorable than when her Husband was at home.4

We shall be glad to hear good tidings of dear Miss Fenwick, who we surmise is in London by this time—and that you are pg 334enjoying the Society of each other. With love to her from Mrs W. etc, very sincerely but in haste, yours

[signed] W Wordsworth
