ME, Myself AND I!

My own Byron – I must say goodnight before I go to rest.

It is my comfort to think of that kind promise that you would make yourself as happy as possible…

I certainly was not myself during your stay.

“Now being gone, I am a – what? – again.”

Before you pass sentence on me finally, wait to see me myself.

Myself is by no means the grave, didactic, deplorable person that I have appeared to you…

Those who have seen me quite as a domestic animal have had more reason to complain of my nonsense than my sense…

What a history of Myself! I wish I had as long a one of thyself – God bless thee – do not – I have forgotten what I was going to say – Remember me as

Thy wife –

Seaham Hall (November 19 1814)
