May 7 1815: Mary and William in London

May 7th.— On returning from a walk to Shooter’s Hill, I found a card from Wordsworth, and, running to Lamb’s, I found Mr. and Mrs. Wordsworth there. After sitting half an hour with them, I accompanied them to their lodgings, near Cavendish Square. Mrs. Wordsworth appears to be a mild and amiable woman, not so lively or animated as Miss Wordsworth, but, like her, devoted to the poet.

— Crabb Robinson writes in his diary for May 7 1815.
