My Dear Talbot

This is the early answer I asked for, you will say you see the blessed effects of Time & idleness

In spite of my not answering it however I was much gratified with your letter & moreover expect as a proof of your magnanimity a full & true account of the new Trinity <1> scholars Is not Coleridge vehemently disgusted how does the Pitt bear himself under his equality to Platt. Who of my year are enjoying the comforts & emoluments of residence Have you heard from Murray yet? Coddington <2> advises me that he has taken to hunting has had a bad fall & that what little matter of knowledge he has is fast going to the dogs I intend appearing among you soon at least some time before the long vacation begins. Remember me to Kindersley Arnold Marten <3> & co I suppose the first is taking it in 14 hours a day & swearing he does nothing as usual. By dint of sheer idleness I am getting well & am at present wholly given to boating Believe me

Yours Ever
T Worsley

Our house is close to the castle & we have the comfort of seeing radicals brought in by coach loads almost every day
