200 years ago Keats enjoyed ‘a sunshiny morning’

On Saturday 19 December 1818 Keats wrote:
“I am at present alone at Wentworth Place — Brown being at Chichester and Mr. and Mrs. Dilke making a little stay in Town. I know not what I should do without a sunshiny morning now and then — it clear’s up one’s spirits.”

A month later Keats would join Brown in Chichester, where he would begin writing ‘The Eve of St Agnes’.
