3312. Robert Southey to John Rickman, 10 June 1819*
My dear R.
After due deliberation I determine upon postponing my southern movements till the fall of the leaf, – & therefore hold myself in readiness to meet you at Edinburgh. The arrangement will suit my convenience well in many respects. And I shall thus be able to bring out Wesley,  & provide a comfortable stock before hand for the Q R. before I visit London. – I did not like to give up a journey to which I had so long looked on, – especially as there more opportunity for society in a weeks fellow-travelling, than we should have g in seven years if I lived in London.
10 June. 1819
I have just received a letter from Davison (on the Poor Laws)  saying he shall call upon me soon.
