To Fanny Keats (Hampstead, Tuesday, August 25, 1818)
Hampstead, Tuesday, August 25, 1818
My dear Fanny
I have just written to Mr. Abbey to ask him to let you come and see poor Tom who has lately been much worse. He is better at present—sends his Love to you and wishes much to see you. I hope he will shortly. I have not been able to come to Walthamstow on his account as well as a little Indisposition of my own. I have asked Mr. A. to write me—if he does not mention anything of it to you, I will tell you what reasons he has though I do not think he will make any objection. Write me what you want with a Flageolet and I will get one ready for you by the time you come.
Your affectionate Brother
