Excerpt from Scenes From the Life of Edward Lascelles, Gent, Vol. 1 of 2
Piove, grandina, fulmina! penso di resignarmi alla necessità, e di giovarmi di questa giornata d'inferno, scrivendoti. Fosculo.
To Charles Herbert, Esquire.
My Dear Herbert,
You cannot have forgotten the pleasant days we spent together during your visit here last autumn. It was then, indeed, that, as the poet expresses it, "time unheeded rolled along;" the sports of the field inducing an hilarity of spirits, that not only inclined us to turn the most trifling occurrences to the purposes of enjoyment, but often betrayed us, besides, into a perhaps somewhat extravagant degree of merriment.
