CHAPTER V
PRIVATE LETTERS 1848-1857

[BATH,Jan, 18, 1856.]
Confinement by a troublesome cold has not made me forget the 19th Jan. On more than half your birthdays I have had the pleasure of drinking your health. On this one, so near, I think I may indulge in the hope of doing so. Alas ! I am gone very far down the vale of years, a vale in which there is no fine prospect on the other side, and the few flowers are scarcely worth gathering. But it is pleasant to turn round in the midst of one's weariness and to look on the verdant declivity behind ; pleasant to see pure white images on either hand, and to distinguish here and there a capital letter on the plinth. Dim as my eyes are become, I do think I can peruse the letter R on the one nearest to me. Old people, it is said, are apt to be verbose, so I must not authenticate it. ... My dear friend, I beg you to believe me,
Your ever affte. old friend,
W. S. L.
