Autograph letter signed : Pisa, to Joseph Severn, 1821 Nov. 29.

Accompanying a copy of Adonais: "I send you the Elegy on poor Keats--and wish it was better worth your reception. You will see by the preface that it was written before I could obtain any particular account of his last moments; ... In spite of his transcendent genius Keats never was not nor ever will be a popular poet and the total neglect & obscurity in which the astonishing remnants of his mind still lie, was hardly to be dissipated by a writer, who, however he may differ from Keats in many important qualities, at least resembles him in that accidental one, a want of popularity ... For my part, I little expected when I last saw Keats at my friend Leigh Hunt's, that I should survive him."
