74 Letters of Mrs. Browning I studied hard by myself afterwards, and the kindness with which afterwards still you assisted me, if yourself remembers gladly /remember gratefully and gladly. I have just been told that your servant was desired by you not to tv ait a minute. The wind is unfavorable for the sea. I do not think there is the least probability of my going before the end of next week, if then. You shall hear. Affectionately yours, E. B. Barrett. I am tolerably well. I have been forced to take digitalis again, which makes me feel weak ; but still I am better, I think. In the course of this year the failure in Miss Barretts health had become so great that her doctor advised removal to a warmer climate for the winter. Torquay wras the place selected, and thither she went in the autumn, accompanied by her brother Edward, her favourite companion from child- hood. Other members of the family, including Mr. Barrett, joined them from time to time. At Torquay she was able to live, but no more, and it was found necessary for her to stay during the summers as well as the winters of the next three years. Letters from this period are scarce, though it is clear from Miss Mitfords correspondence that a continuous interchange of letters was kept up between the two friends, and her acquaintanceship with Horne was now ripening into a close literary intimacy.

( The Poet's Vow 39 about my angels. You know one cant sometimes sit down to the sublunary occupation of reading Greek, unless one feels free to it. And writing poetry requires a double liberty, and an inclination which comes only of itself. But I have begun. I tried the blank metre once, and it would not do, and so I had to begin again in lyrics. Something above an hundred lines is written, and now I am in two panics, just as if one were not enough. First, because it seems to me a very daring subjecta subject almost beyond our sympathies, and therefore quite beyond the sphere of human poetry. Perhaps when all is written courageously, I shall have no courage left to publish it. Secondly, because all my tendencies towards mysticism will be called into terrible operation by this dreaming upon angels. Yes; you will read a mystery, but dont make any rash resolutions about reading anything. As I have begun, I certainly will go on with the writing. Here is a question for you : Am I to accept your generous sacrifice of reading nine- tenths of my Vow, as an atonement for your want of confidence in me? Oh, your conscience will understand very well what I mean, without a dictionary. Arabel and I intend to pay you a visit on Monday, and if we can, and it is convenient to you, we are inclined to invite ourselves to your dinner table. But this is all dependent on the weather. Believe me, dear Mr. Boyd, your affectionate friend, E. B. …

1846] AND ELIZABETH BARRETT 4G5 the ablative absolute? I do protest tliat, with tlie know- ledge of so many horrible pitfalls, or rather spring guns with wires on every bush . . such dreadful possibilities of stumbling on conditional moods, imperfect tenses singular numbers, I should have been too glad to put up with the safe spot for the sole of my foot though no larger than afforded by such a word as Conjunction, * possessive pronoun, secure so far from poor Tippets catastrophe. Well, I ventured, and what did I find? This which I copy from the book now If ive love in the other ivorld as ive do in this, I shall love thee to eternityfrom Promiscuous Exercises, to be translated into Italian, at the end. And now I reach Horne and his characteristicsof which I can tell you with confidence that they are grossly misrepresented where not altogether falsewhether it pro- ceed from inability to see what one may see, or disinclina- tion, I cannot say. I know very little of Horne, but my one visit to him a few weeks ago would show the uncan- didness of those charges: for instance, he talked a good deal about horses, meaning to ride in Ireland, and de- scribed very cleverly an old hunter he had hired once, how it galloped and could not walk; also he propounded a theory of the true method of behaving in the saddle when a horse rears, which I besought him only to practise in fancy on the sofa, where he lay telling it. …
