Patience? Wise UP!

Seaham Hall (December 11 1814)

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
