[April 18921]

MS location unknown. Printed in Coleridge, Life 336

My dear Frances
We buried the poor old fellow with all honours. Charles wheeled down the barrow, I followed, and we put him where his predecessors are, coming on two of their coffins before we found the right place. Poor old fellow, he loved his own way, and it was well for all that he should not grown old.

1Dated from the reference to the departure of the Rev. Henry Brock in 1892. The 'poor old fellow' was a dog named Graf.
