William Godwin's Diary


Jacob Leroux owned extensive property in Somers Town, where Godwin moved after the completion of Political Justice. It is likely that Godwin rented from Leroux and this comment signals their agreement. Subsequent notes indicate his removal to that property.

See London Chronicle, 28 June 1792 and also 20 June 1799 entry following Leroux’s death when a number of his properties are sold.
