Evidence

"I can say this much that your paper has impressed me very much, and I shall never get the village out of my head; I know the place; it is called (to imitate Bunyan) the village of Hope-deferred, and near it goes the river of the Shadow of Suicide."

Notes
RLS?s remarks here seem to be an amalgam of religious allusions. In Pt I, section 1, of The Pilgrim?s Progress we read: ?in yonder Village (the village is named Morality) there dwells a Gentleman whose name is Legality.? The King James Bible, Proverbs 13, v.12 has: ?Hope deferred maketh the heart sick?. Hopeful is the name of one of Christian?s companions on his pilgrimage. Christian has to pass through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and later, when Christian and Hopeful are imprisoned in Doubting Castle, Despair beats them and encourages them to commit suicide so as to escape their suffering. See also the King James Bible, Psalms, 23, v. 4: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.
