In 1883, the same year that Harry Buxton Forman produced a comprehensive edition of the letters and poems in England, the poet's grand-nephew, John Gilmer Speed published a rival edition in New York. Gilmer Speed was the son of Emma Keats Speed (George and Georgiana's third child). When he published this edition with Dodd, Mead & Company in New York, it had one significant claim over Forman's edition: Gilmer Speed claimed to have in his possession, thanks to his mother's care in preserving them for the previous decade or so, a number of letters that had not been printed, in full or in part, in Milnes's 1848 edition. Gilmer Speed noted that their absence was due to John Jeffrey's "discretion in making selections from the letters." Gilmer Speed adds that Jeffrey "evidently did not exercise a very wise discretion." What Gilmer Speed's edition tells us, however, is that the negative capability letter was not one of those in his possession. He prints the letter exactly as Milnes's did in 1848. In short, negative capability's last known whereabouts (and timeabouts?) must be somewhere and somewhen between September 1845 (when Jeffrey sent off his transcripts) and 1883 when Gilmer Speed got around to publishing his edition in New York.
