# - Coleridge, Samuel Taylor.
AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED, TO HIS BROTHER GEORGE

a spirited and light-hearted missive, with family news and in-jokes about his brother Edward (whose 'puns are very bad' and whose wife calls George 'her friend'), his forthcoming visit to his other brother James (whom he will not visit later 'on account of his Sidmouthianism'), and his anticipation of George's coming to Ottery

...your presence, like the Sun, will relax the frost of my genius, and, like a cathartic, purify it of all obstructions, so that I expect to flow away in a bloody flux of poetry...

3 pages, 4to, address panel, impression in red wax of armorial seal (in two halves), postal marks, Salisbury, 13 July 1792, seal tear (affecting a word or two of text)
