November 19 1814: Very Ill

Saturday, November 19. Very ill. Shelley and Jane go out to call at Mrs. Knapp’s; she receives Jane kindly; promises to come and see me. I go to bed early. Charles Clairmont calls in the evening, but I do not see him.

— Mary Godwin writes in her journal for November 19 1814.

The illustration in the tweet is by Lynd Ward who was an American artist who also illustrated Frankenstein. The image above is from his work Songs Without Words. Jen Vaughn has a nice post about the artist which can be found here.
