NOT If BUT When?

Tell me the latest not the earliest day that you think to arrive here, for my Philosophy likes not “hope deferred.”..

It did me no good before, though during those weeks of suspense and renewed disappointments, I would not yield to anxiety for a moment, the consequences have made it felt.

Now they are surmounted, and I am in every respect well…
