March 8 1860

Dear Sir, 
I am in a Madhouse and quite forget your name or who you are
You must excuse me for I have nothing to communicate or tell 
of and why I am shut up I dont know I have nothing to say so 
I conclude 

Yours respectfully,
John Clare 

(Letter to J. Hipkins)

John Clare was an English poet who was born 13 July 1793 in Helpston, Soke of Peterborough,
