Just before Christmas my brother died, and was buried at Bruges. In the following February my father died, and was buried alongside of him 鈥?and with him died that tedious task of his, which I can only hope may have solaced many of his latter hours. I sometimes look back, meditating for hours together, on his adverse fate. He was a man, finely educated, of great parts, with immense capacity for work, physically strong very much beyond the average of men, addicted to no vices, carried off by no pleasures, affectionate by nature, most anxious for the welfare of his children, born to fair fortunes 鈥?who, when he started in the world, may be said to have had everything at his feet.
