CHAPTER I
PRIVATE LETTERS 1838 - 1839

Caldwell desired me to tell you that she would answer your letter when she is at Clifton. She spoke most kindly and affectionately of the whole family, so did dear old Lady Belmore. Poor Miss Hotham, I am afraid, is in a hopeless state of health. It grieves me, although I have seen but little of her these last thirty years. She is the only visible link in a chain to me more than golden.
I took your letter to Mr Cogan, who promised to send me an answer for you. Mr C-- has lost his son in the most deplorable manner. He had been deranged, and every sharp instrument was removed from his reach. But several months before, he had secreted a pistol, and with that he terminated his existence. The father had been studying late, and had just got into bed, when he heard a noise above him in his son's room. Fancying he wanted something which he could not find, he ran upstairs. At the very instant he opened the chamber door, a pistol exploded, and his son fell into his arms, covering him with blood. Philosophy has no defence against such blows as these ; and those to whom the world is least, are the most vulnerable on the side of their children.
Early next month I think I shall go for a few weeks into Devonshire. But I am not fond~aof new faces, nor of many people. I took lodgings for a week at Clifton but stayed only two days. The place is utterly ruined by that detestable bridge, and
