The Funeral #cremation of #Shelley by Louis Édouard #Fournier (1889); on the beach of #Viareggio shows #Trelawny, Leigh Hunt and #LordByron attending. Mary Shelley is kneeling on the left. But in fact Hunt was in his carriage, Byron had gone swimming because of the heat and Mary wasnt there at all.
This is John Keats's signature, including his nickname 'Junkets', from a letter to Leigh Hunt, 10 May 1817. It was Hunt who dubbed Keats 'Junkets' due to the poet's Cockney-esque pronunciation of his name.
