e, other things alike, a young man is received with more empressement than a middle-aged one.
Mrs. Samuel Lawrence wrote, May 12, 1838:—
I will not say with how much regret I found my Saturday evenings broken up. I think we enjoyed them so much that I trust the memory of them will induce a renewal at some future day. Then we shall have the extra pleasure of hearing your feats of valor and adventure.
Your anticipations, you say, great as they were, were fully realized on landing in France.
I think you peculiarly fitted to enjoy travelling.
All is novelty and freshness, and with your energy, ardor, and untiring perseverance no information will be left vnattained, and no rational pleasure unsought.
You have my best wishes that nothing may occur to mar this enjoyment.
Dr. Palfrey wrote, Sept. 25:—
You are, I will not say an enviable, but certainly a very fortunate, man; and are thus another illustration of the connection between good luck and good conduct.
