Letter/Extract 5

STC to Mrs S. T. Coleridge: Tuesday Night, 9 o' clock. Sept. 18th, 1798.

Chester was ill the whole voyage, Wordsworth shockingly ill, his Sister worst of all – vomiting, & groaning, unspeakably! And I neither sick or giddy, but gay as a lark. The sea rolled rather high; but the motion was pleasant to me. (CL I, 416).
