To Benjamin Robert Haydon (Wentworth Place, Monday Aft., January 4, 1819)

Wentworth Place, Monday Aft., January 4, 1819
I have been out this morning, and did not therefore see your note till this minute, or I would have gone to town directly—it is now too late for to-day. I will be in town early to-morrow, and trust I shall be able to lend you assistance noon or night. I was struck with the improvement in the architectural part of your Picture—and, now I think on it, I cannot help wondering you should have had it so poor, especially after the Solomon. Excuse this dry bones of a note: for though my pen may grow cold, I should be sorry my Life should freeze—
Your affectionate friend
John Keats.
