Omit the Patience!

I begin to think that after the great cake baked, and the epithalamium composed, with all the other prologues to the performance, the part of Spouse, like that of Hamlet, will be omitted “by particular desire”.

Really you don’t know how sorry I am that you should be detained.

Of the causes of delay Hanson’s is the only one which I can conceive that we can not annihilate.

I shall be making a visit to Albany some day, if you stay there much longer…

I do all I can to be as patient as you wish I should, during this last separation – reading a good deal, and observing such other discipline as may keep me in my right mind.

After this experience I shall not very willingly part with you again for a shorter time.

At least I have learned that I cannot enjoy anything without you – these long blank days!

Goodnight – Love – and believe me in all truth

Thine

Seaham Hall (December 4 1814)
