Seaham Hall (November 20 1814)
‘I hope for a line from you to-day.
I want it very much – not so much as yourself – yet I still think, only for obstinacy’s sake, that just now we are better apart…
I have nothing to tell you, and only wish that you knew – I will leave you to guess what…‘
Lord Byron’s Wife Malcom Elwin (London: John Murray 1962)
