Excerpt from The Cornhill Magazine, Vol. 19: January to June, 1869
As I look back on the night that followed, it seems to me one of the saddest passages of my life. If I fell asleep it was to dream of the past, with all its exciting pleasures and delights, and then awaking suddenly, I found myself in this wretched, poverty-stricken room, where every object spoke of misery, and recalled me to the thought of a condition as ignoble and as lowly.
