William Blake The Ghost of a Flea, 1819-1820

In a letter to Thomas Butts, dated April 25, 1803, Blake writes:

"Now I may say to you, what perhaps I should not dare to say to anyone else: That I can alone carry on my visionary studies in London unannoy'd, and that I may converse with my friends in Eternity, See visions, Dream dreams and prophecy and speak parables unobserv'd and at liberty from the Doubts of other Mortals; perhaps Doubts proceeding from Kindness, but doubts are always pernicious, Especially when we doubt our friends."
