Robert Southey to Grosvenor Charles Bedford, 20-21 July 1794: 'When Coleridges work is published you will see a Latin Poem of Allens which did not gain the praise. the subject Ludi Scenici. of the execution you will judge for my own part I will not scruple to pronounce it very excellent. Coleridge means to translate it. he won the Greek Ode at Cambridge & I have promisd to translate it for his work, so you will have some memorial of us all.'
