200 years ago, Leigh Hunt wondered where “Junkets” was

On Tuesday 1 July 1817, Leigh Hunt wrote to Charles Cowden Clarke, wondering what had happened to “Junkets” (his nick-name for John Keats): ‘I suppose Queen Mab has eaten him.’
Leigh Hunt had returned to London on 25 June (after staying with Shelley in Marlow for four months). In fact, Keats was at Well Walk, Hampstead, working on Endymion.
