Despite my successful publication, I am having some money troubles. To resolve this I went to the Dorant’s Hotel, which is located in London, in an attempt to raise some money. I was unfortunately unable to raise any in this location, but I was able to do so through moneylenders and with the help of Mrs. Massingbred. From this exchange, I was able to obtain 3000 pounds with the promise that I would return to them 5000 pounds within six months (The Byron Chronology).

The other day, against the advisory of some of my peers, I went riding in the rain because if one cannot ride in the rain every once in a while, one cannot appreciate riding under the sun. Yet, it seems my actions have gotten the better of me. After coming back from riding in the harsh weather I contracted a fever and the doctors fear the worst (Poet’s Graves). As I write these very words I am lying on what I fear is my death bed. I am tired, and despite what may happen “Now I shall go to sleep” (Byron).
