    Writing to his friend, Thomas Manning—one of the correspondents with whom he was Recollections of Charles Lamb book in the happiest vein—Lamb expatiated upon the moving very much in the style of his later essays: I am going to change my lodgings, having received a hint that it would be agreeable, at our [25] Lady's next feast. I must not have my reader infer from this, that I at all think it likely, a young maid of fourteen would fall in love without asking her grandmother's leave—the thing itself is not to be conceived. She had oft-times heard Allan speak with great tenderness of his sister—she was now rambling, arm in arm, with that very sister, the "vaunted sister" of her friend, her beloved Clare. Bad parents, bad husbands, bad children—what cemeteries are appointed for these? I called for wine—I drank a pint and a half of red wine—and not till then had I dared to visit the church-yard, where my parents were interred. During the first half of these years in the Temple, Charles Lamb had written much that now endears him to us; but little, it is to be feared, that made the great body of contemporary readers aware of his existence.

    It extends southward to the Thames, and contains long ranges of melancholy buildings, in which lawyers those reputed birds of prey and their followers congregate. Christian Europe invokes thee not by these names now—her idolatry is of a blacker stain: Belial is her God—she worships Mammon. The six weeks that finished last year and began this, your very humble servant spent very agreeably in a madhouse at Hoxton. This gained him the reputation of a wit—other traits got him the reputation of a villain.

    The master, too, is sensible that he is seen in this light; and how much this must lessen that affectionate regard to the learners which alone can sweeten the bitter labor of instruction, and convert the whole business into unwelcome and uninteresting task-work, many preceptors that I have conversed with Recollections of Charles Lamb book the subject are ready, with a sad heart, to acknowledge. One, that knew her, met her, and observed her with some surprise. It is believed that he suffered from smallpox during his early years which forced him into a long period of convalescence. Do I dream, or doth not even now a heavenly calm descend from thee into my bosom, as I meditate on the chaste loves of Rosamund and her Clare! But mad I [17] was; and many a vagary my imagination played with me, enough to make a volume, if all were told Margaret retained a spirit unbroken by calamity.

To-day, after dinner, when he took his glass of wine in his hand, he burst into tears, and would not, or could not then, tell me the reason—afterwards he told me—"he had been used to drink Mamma's health after dinner, and that came into his head and made him cry.

Meanwhile he advanced with rather a peculiar gait, his walk was plantigrade, and with Recollections of Charles Lamb book cheerful "How d'ye do," and one of the blandest, sweetest smiles that ever brightened a manly countenance, held out two fingers to the Editor.

A young man with gray deliberation! We have Elia's word for it that John Lamb the elder "was the liveliest little fellow breathing" with a face as gay as Garrick's, and we know further that he pub [12] lished a small volume of simple verse. The Lord had taken away my friends, and I knew not where he had laid them.

The tapestried bed-rooms — tapestry so much better than painting — not adorning merely, but peopling the wainscots — at which childhood ever and anon would steal a look, shifting its coverlid replaced as quickly to exercise its tender courage in a momentary eye-encounter with those stern bright visages, staring reciprocally — all Ovid on the walls, in colours vivider than his descriptions.

The Persian ambassador is the principal thing talked of now. She is older and wiser and better than I, and all my wretched imperfections I cover to myself by resolutely thinking on [38] her goodness.

She had only her left in the world. Between the seventh of the series 5th July, and the eighth 27th September, there is a gap of time at the close of which happened the tragedy that coloured the whole of Charles Lamb's subsequent life and caused him to give himself up to a life of devotion to which it would not be easy to find a parallel.
