TC TO LADY ASHBURTON

Scotsbrig, 25 decr 1853

5½ p.m.

All is over here, dear Friend: the struggle ended, gently, gently at last almost as a dream, at 10 minutes past 4;—it had been a deeper and deeper sleep for near 16 hours before.

I am full of heavy inarticulate misery, as you may fancy; and will add no more except my blessings and regards. You pity me truly, and there is nothing to be said.

Adieu dear Friend. God is great; God is great.

T.C.
