Excerpt: . out every day--either in brisk walks in the morning, or in brisk jumbles in the carriage of one of my three friends who send for me, to a " tete-a-tete," tea-converse. 4th. Strict attention to diet. I feel vexed at your disappointment in your pretty house, but not surprised; as I feared it was too remote for a winter residence. As to its being "worth while, or not, to make experiment of a change," I should hold not to do it a species of suicide: for why are observations and experience recorded us, if not to direct us in combining circumstances that may guide us for the future; by recollecting and weighing mistakes that had led us to judge wrongly in the past? Certainly, at our time of life, we cannot have such superfluous health as to make us indifferent to guarding or losing any part of that commodity. I ought to have told you the medical sentence upon which I act. These were the words--" You have a head over-worked, and a heart over-loaded." This produces a disposition to fulness in both that causes stagnation, &c., with a consequent want of circulation at the extremities, that keeps them cold and aching. Knowing this, I now act upon it as warily as I am able. The worst of all is, that I have lost, totally lost, my pleasure in reading except when Alex. is my lecturer, for whose sake my faculties are still alive to what-- erst gave them their greatest delight. But alone; I have no longer that resource I have scarcely looked over a single sentence, but some word of it brings to my mind some mournful recollection, or acute regret, and takes from one all attention--my eyes thence glance vainly over pages that awaken no ideas.--This is melancholy in the extreme; yet I have tried every species of writing and writer--but all pass by me mechanicall.
