264. To Mr. Roskilly Transcript Thomas Ward copy-book, New York Public Lib. Pub. Letters, i. 267. Ratzeburg Germany Decr 3d 1798 My dear Sir There is an honest heart out of Great Britain that enters into your good fortune with a sincere and lively Joy -- May you enjoy life and health -- all else you have -- a good Wife -- a good conscience, a good temper, sweet children and Competence! -- The first glass of wine I drink shall be a bumper -- not to you! no! -- but to the Bishop of Gloucester! God bless him! Sincerely your Friend S. T. Coleridge
