386. To William Godwin Address: Mr Godwin | Polygon | Sommers Town | London -MS. Lord Abinger. Hitherto unpublished. Postmark:10 March 1801. Stamped: Keswick. Keswick, Cumberland March 7, 1801 Dear Godwin I have puzzled my brains to no purpose to find a plausible conjecture, why you have not written to me. -- If I had in any way offended you, your simple & direct habits would have impelled you to write; and if you have been employed, I should have thought, it would have been some Cheering of Toil to have set a friend at a distance a sympathizing with you. -- Do write -- if it be only half a dozen Lines. -- Your's sincerely, S. T. Coleridge
