My dear Sir George,

On the 10th of May I mean to quit home for London, and should much like to take Coleorton in my way. I am called to Town by business, and one day for Liverpool, and one for Coleorton is all I can spare.—If you should not be likely to be at Coleorton on the 12th or 13th (and pray let me know) I should defer my visit till some more favorable opportunity.

Are Mr and Mrs Merewether likely to be found at home, at that time.

I hope that yourself and your little ones are well.—

  • Believe me my dear Sir George       
  • faithfully yours         
  • Wm Wordsworth

Editor’s Note
1 This letter seems most likely to belong to 1836. It was clearly written after the birth of Sir George's two children, and most probably after the death of Lady Beaumont, Dr. Howley's daughter, in 1834.
