CHAPTER VI
PRIVATE LETTERS 1858-1863

insufficient to dispel nry gloom. Twenty years was the nineteenth of January kept as a holiday by me, and in almost all of those years in Great Bedford Street. ... I am better than I was two years ago, yet I hope Doctor Watson's prognostication may not be accomplished, that I am "good for another ten years." I was stronger at sixty than many are at forty. I can hardly think that I have entered on my eighty-sixth year. Altho' I am unable to alight from a carriage without help I will exert my best powers to join you in any part of Italy. But surely you and Mr Sawle will travel on as far as Florence. The Gulf of Spezia is quite as well worth seeing as the Bay of Naples, and Florence is richer in works of art than any other city in the world, and you shall carry back with you any one of the five pictures which were sent to me here from England.
Tell Rosina I send her a kiss thro' a beard as long as a Jew's ; and you know, dear Rose, how faithfully
I remain yours,
W. S. L.

To Mrs Graves-Sawle.
[FLORENCE] January 24 [1861].
