18 W goes on to Bristol, hoping to meet Lloyd and help to bring about some reconciliation between him and STC; Lloyd, however, has left for Birmingham, where his father, a Quaker banker, lives. Shortly afterwards William Hazlitt visits STC at Stowey, and is brought to Alfoxden, where D gives him free access to W' s manuscript poems for Lyrical Ballads. He stays overnight; next morning STC reads 'The Idiot Boy' aloud in the park. The next day W, returning from Bristol, after seeing a performance of 'Monk' Lewis's melodrama The Castle Spectre, finds them at Stowey; the following day at Alfoxden, they hear him read 'Peter Bell' in the open air.

March Lines in an early version (on three full moons since the Ws' arrival at Grasmere) show that W is working on the first book of The Recluse, 'Home at Grasmere'. STC arrives on the 6th and stays exactly four weeks, during which he discovers that Greta Hall, Keswick, is to let (d. 'Home at Grasmere', 659-61); Wand he agree to prepare a two-volume edition of LB, the second to consist of new poems. W contemplates writing a novel. April May 4 (Sun) STC leaves for home, taking copies of poems for the new edition of LB.

13 W and D move into Alfoxden with Basil and STC. 17 John Thelwall, who had been imprisoned in 1794 for his revolutionary views, and has corresponded with STC, reaches Stowey just after Sara's return from Alfoxden to 'superintend the wash-tub'. 18 She takes him to Alfoxden in time to call STC and W for breakfast. 21 They all walk back to [Nether] Stowey. Thelwall wishes to retire from politics and settle in the country. August Suspicion of W soon arises in the neighbourhood from his dark complexion and his living with a woman who 'passes for' his sister and has a child.
