He that has given you happiness in marriage, to a degree of which, without personal knowledge, I should have thought the description fabulous, can give you another mode of happiness, as a mother ; and at last the happiness of losing all temporal cares in the thoughts of an eternity in Heaven.
Página 234 - I am not without my part of the calamity. No death since that of my wife has ever oppressed me like this.
