February 26, 1854.

MS location unknown. Printed in Coleridge, Life 195.

My trouble has come; he had a second attack and died at six to-night.

Mamma is too like Amy, excited with thankfulness. I dread what it will be; I don’t think we half believe it yet.

You will write to me; perhaps I may write to-morrow, but I can’t tell. We have Mr. and Mrs. Keble helping us to-night. Oh what will the waking be! So many of our Psalm superstitions have come true.

Your most affectionate
C. M. Y.
