1433. W. W. to BENJAMIN ROBERT HAYDON

  • MS. untraced.
  • K, LY ii. 1034,

Friday 4th [Sept. 1840]

My dear Haydon

Correct thus the lines toward the close of the Sonnet:1

As shows that time-worn face. But he such seed Hath sown, as yields, we trust, the fruit of fame In Heaven etc—

You will see the reason of this alteration—it applies now to his life in general and not that particular act as before—You may print the Son. where and when you like, if you think it will serve you—only it may be as well that I should hear from you first, as you may have something to suggest, either as to the title, or the lines.

  • Yours etc in haste,      
  • Wm Wordsworth
