CHAPTER VI
PRIVATE LETTERS 1858-1863

your usual health. Here in Florence we have suffered as severe and comfortless weather as there can have been in England. To-day there is a deep fog. Among the kind letters I have received, one is from Mrs Burton Borough of Chetwynd Park. Perhaps you may remember her at Bath as the daughter of Admiral Gawen, an old friend of mine. In six days I shall have entered my eighty-seventh year. I can stil write a little. You will see I have been rubbing up my Italian with the pen. Fifty-five years ago, when my cousin, Sophia Shuckburgh, was going to Paris, she told me she must rub up her French a little. I told her not to rub it too hard, for fear of rubbing it all away.
I wish I could hear once more an Italian song of yours. I hope Rosina will sing. ... The ugly old man has grown uglier since she saw him.
Yr. affte. old friend,
W. S. L.

To Mrs Graves-Sawle.
FLORENCE, Jan. 14 [1862].
DEAR ROSE,
It gave me about as much pain as an old withered heart can feel, to be sensible that your approaching birthday will probably be the last on which I shall be living to congratulate you. In a few days I shall have entered my eighty-eighth year.
