February 18, 1833
This is a letter dated February 18, 1833 from William Fitzgerald in Washington, D.C. to his wife E.A. Fitzgerald in Dresden, Tennessee
I am trying to wear away the tedious & heavy hours of night by thinking of Home and all that Home means - Superinduced by the stilness [stillness] and sadness of night I have thought myself into a most delicious melancholy - I declare I never feel so conscious that I have an immortal soul and feel and know its workings so well as when I am in this mood - a month more by Divine permission and I will once more clasp to my arms more objects which alone bind me to existence. - I am well.
