Robert Southey to Edward Moxon, 31 May 1830; Selections from the Letters (1856) 4:184.



I am very glad to hear that you have commenced business, and that it is with the patronage of so judicious and efficient a friend as Mr. Rogers. You know I am under many engagements at this time, but the very first thing which I have at my own disposal shall certainly be offered to you; for I have often troubled you freely, and shall gladly take every opportunity of showing that you have not obliged an unthankful person.
