200 years ago Keats was on a flying visit to London

On Sunday 12 September 1819, Keats had breakfast with Woodhouse, read him some of ‘Lamia’, and insisted on revisions to ‘The Eve of St Agnes’ which Woodhouse said would ‘render the poem unfit for ladies’.
He visited Mrs Wylie (mother of his sister-in-law).
He stayed the night with his publisher James Hessey in Fleet Street.
