426. To Daniel Stuart Address: D. Stuart Esq. | No/ 335 | Strand MS. British Museum. Pub. Letters from the Lake Poets, 7. Friday Night -- [ 25 December 1801] My dear Stuart A Letter which I received this afternoon makes it proper for me to be off to Stowey as soon as I can -- You will hear from me by Tuesday's Post, at the farthest -- & this you may rely on -- & I feel the inmost conviction that I shall do more for you the ten days of my absence than if I had been in London -- I have borrowed 5 guineas of Mr Howel, which you will be so good as to pay him -- and if you want money, I have written on the other side a draft for 25£, which you will use if you have any need -- I am much your debtor at present; but please God! deliver me of this complaint. I will soon work it out. Your's sincerely S. T. Coleridge -777-
