Patience? Wise UP!

If you give your consent to our immediate marriage we have only to gain Hanson’s.

All my discomposures have arisen from the uncertainty of our situation – it is trying to me, I own – I should be a different being if it were at an end.

Of this I meant to say no more till I should have had your answer to my last letter.

You have my thoughts as they rise, and if ever they appear other than your wish, I do believe the fault is in their expression…

I never wished to escape from time, as time, before.

When, when – well – patience. “You see what a philosopher I am!”

If I lack wisdom, I lack not love, and am in all truth


Seaham Hall (December 11 1814)
