George joins Abbey's tea brokerage in the counting house. John, after a surgeon's apprenticeship in Edmonton, moves to London to attend Guy's Hospital training. The boys live in Cockney Cheapside, although John subsequently moves to Hampstead to be closer to his new friend Leigh Hunt. Brother Tom has consumption, with various sojourns arranged away from London for the benefit of his health. John drops medicine in order to pursue poetry. George meets Georgiana Augusta Wylie. He frets that his limited inheritance will make him unable to acquire a business. George helps John edit his poetry and work with publishers.
