In the "Collected Letters of Samuel Taylor Coleridge," edited by Earl Leslie Griggs, future author and poet Coleridge refers to his arrival at University of Göttingen in February 1799 and his introduction to several English students. Using matriculation records for students entering studies at the University for the years 1797 to 1799, the article explores which British students were met by Coleridge when he began his studies. It identities fellow classmates including former students of Cambridge University George Bellas Greenough, John Browne, and William Richard Hamilton, as well as Charles Kennett of London, England.
