Death in the Dance. A reminiscence The new year had opened without a cloud to obscure the azure of heaven and all hailed the prospect of a fair day.—The Sun shone with radiant splendor; every eye was brilliant with glee, and the cheeks of youth and beauty glowed with the rich carmine of health. Visits were paid, gifts presented, gratulations offered, and tokens of love exchanged with all the...
I was so much fatigued from my journey that I found it impossible to write by Whitcomb he will tell you how very much the poor baby suffered and I hope it will be an inducement for you to come and fetch us as I really feel that George will be almost too great a charge for me alone he has quite recovered his fatigue and looks as well as ever the meeting with my friends was almost too much for...
I should have answered your very affectionate letter by this days post had I not been confined by one of my fits of the cramps &c. which owing to the fatigue of my journey and the unusual agitation of my spirits was attended with a considerable degree of fever I am however much better today and should be perfectly well if it was not for my hands which are extremely painful it is a return of...
