Concerning her wish to join the Wordsworth Society and suggesting a Wordsworth project; saying "I cannot indeed hope that any contribution of mine will really be of much service to the cause; but should there be any work of which I am capable, such as comparing the text of different editions &c, I should be delighted to undertake it, when summer has brought me a little more leisure. So I enclose 2/6 as my annual Subscription, and am proud to reckon myself a member of the 'Wordsworth Club'. Yesterday morning I was reminded of our poet by seeing the first Celandine, in a lane near our house,where I usually look for it in early spring, and celebrate the event of its arrival by a recitation of the two poems on that Flower. This annual ceremonial I observe as a devotion & the shrine of nature and Poetry! Two years ago I saw a Celandine out on February 16th, thus confirming the accuracy of the Poet's statement, but it is later this season, & not fully out yet, still 'muffled up from harm, in close self-shelter.' The Celandine's closing its petals in bad weather is twice noticed by Wordsworth; & this repetition has suggested the notion to me that it might be interesting to collect parallel passages from his works, where the same thought re-appears in a different connection, - should it prove that the instances of this are sufficient in number to make it worth while. Another example is the mention together of 'Fear and trembling Hope' among the 'Ghostly Shapes' that haunted the noonday shade of the Boradale [sic] Yew Trees. This is expanded into 'the fear that kills, and hope that is unwilling to be fed' of the 'Leech Gatherer.' With respect to local description, this method of illustration is, of course, most fully carried out in your delightful book 'The Lake District': it would only be an application of the same principle & thoughts, sentiments and notices of natural objects. I must not however detain you longer with my fancies..."

Pointing out an error in a footnote in Knight's "Life of Wordsworth;" saying "There is, however, a footnote at p. 256 of Vol. XI, to which I should like to call your attention (if you will kindly permit me to do so) as I cannot but think that it is founded on some mistake. In explanation of an extract from a letter of Wordsworth to Moxon (Jan. 4th 1836) in which he speaks contemptuously of a certain book 'about Coleridge', you say 'Evidently Table Talk of S.T. Coleridge London, 1835.' - meaning I conclude the well known 'Table Talk', edited by my father, Henry Nelson Coleridge, as I never heard of any other. But it is quite certain this cannot be the work referred to in the letter, as, in the first place, Mr. Wordsworth speaks of 'the two volumes about Coleridge', whereas the Table Talk was never in more than one (See the Dedication to Mr.and Mrs. Gilliman, 'to whom this volume is gratefully inscribed.' Secondly, the remark in the letter about 'the truth scraped together' by the editor, & 'the pain given to living persons', are obviously inapplicable to the content of the Table Talk which are a record of S.T.C.'s opinions, chiefly about books & abstract matters, avoiding all personalities. Besides, I feel sure that Mr. W. would never have spoken of my father as a man 'without judgment', who had not 'sagacity' enough to distinguish between telling all the truth and telling nothing but what is true. I think there is no doubt that the book Mr. W. was speaking of to my Uncle Southey in that letter was the 'Recollections of S.T. Coleridge' by Joseph Cottle, the Bristol publisher, a well-meaning but injudicious person, which appeared about that time, & gave a great deal of vexation to S.T.C's friends & relations, in consequence of its imprudent disclosures. Mr. Southey speaks thus of this publication, now long forgotten in a letter to Mr. Moxon July 19, 1839 - 'Of late I have seen much of myself in a way that others painfully brings back the past: Sir Walter's Memoir first, then Joseph Cottle's 'Recollections' of so many things which had better have been forgotten; & now these Memorials of poor Charles Lamb. / Life of Southey Vol. IX, p. 335. / I am sure you will understand my feeling of regret that anyone should be led to suppose that Mr. Wordsworth entertained an unfavourable opinion of my father's Specimen of the Table Talk of Coleridge."

Thanking him for the photograph of Wordsworth; "; saying "I think it most interesting & extremely like him as I remember him in the spring of 1849, the very time that he sat for this likeness. I have no other portrait of the Poet except a small photograph in an album - so I shall have this one framed & hang it under the oil painting of S.T.C. in my drawing room. Since I had the pleasure of seeing you, I have been reading your 'Life of Wordsworth', in the large edition, & have got to the 'Later Years in Dove Cottage'. All is full of interest to me;" expressing her hope that she will see him again next year in Malvern

Concerning an error Miss Coleridge found in a footnote to Knight's "Life of Wordsworth" which she brought to his attention in her letter to Knight of January 24, 1891 (MA 9407.3); thanking him for his reply; saying "I am quite satisfied with your promise to rectify the error in a subsequent edition, or on any other suitable occasion that may present itself. As you say, it is not usual for an author to write to the papers expressly to call attention to an accidental oversight in his own book - especially so long after its publication. Singularly enough - since I wrote to you Cottle's 'Early Recollections', in two volumes, has turned up, among my sister-in-law's books, those which my brother left to her from [illegible] those of my father's library. It certainly justifies Mr. Wordsworth's & Mr. Southey's animadversions; it is written (much of it, at least) in an absurd inflated style, & is full of just the sort of 'facts' that a gossip-loving public delights in! The only point that does not seem to agree with Mr. W.'s letter is that the book is dated 1837, a year later than the date of that letter; but it must be possible to account for the discrepancy in some way. Perhaps it was sent by Cottle privately to Southey, (at whose house W. saw it) before it was published. Or the nominal date may have [been] some months later than the time when it really appeared."
