To Benjamin Robert Haydon (Wentworth Place, Hampstead, August 1820)

Mrs. Brawne’s Next door to Brown’s,
Wentworth Place, Hampstead,
August 1820

My dear Haydon

I am much better this morning than I was when I wrote the note: that is my hopes and spirits are better which are generally at a very low ebb from such a protracted illness. I shall be here for a little time and at home all and every day. A journey to Italy is recommended me, which I have resolved upon and am beginning to prepare for. Hoping to see you shortly

I remain your affectionate friend
John Keats.
