CHAPTER II
PRIVATE LETTERS 1840-1841

Often and often
Vainly have tried.
Is ityou?' `Is ityau?' we cry both of us. `It's
An incredible time since I saw you and Fitz.'
`Come and dine with us.'-'No, not to-day?'-'Will you fix
On to-morrow? Be sure you're no later than six.
Well ! I find you as lively and youthful as when
I was brightest of maids, and you boldest of men !
`Alas ! my sweet lady ! no very great praise!
You hardly were born in the best of my days,
When eyes bright as yours, and voices as sweet,
With my voice and nay eyes were happy to meet.'

`Of my praise or my thoughts how unworthy are you !
I was born in those days, and remember them too.'

With a little less pleasure Jane looks in her glass,
But Fitz is as hearty as ever he was.
A wrinkle the more, or a wrinkle the less
May creep on us men, and cause trifling distress,
But thirty years hence you may witness how sad is
A suspicion or shadow of one upon ladies.

And now a few words on my Florentine guest,
Who is gone, as I wish'd, rather early to rest.
I find my poor Walter as thin as a lath,
And wish he were quietly with me at Bath,
At morning and evening taking his fill
Of health and fresh air upon your Primrose-hill.
He would find, I suspect, even health and fresh air
The sweeter for one certain nymph being there.

Tho' here is brave Walter, methinks I would rather
My Julia, dear Julia, were now by her father,
With her fair open forehead, eyes modest and mild
And a voice, I do think, like my own, when a child :
I fancy her (what will not fathers suppose?)
As beauteous, and nearly as graceful as Rose.
