"All I can say at all likely to give you any pleasure is, that I read poor dear Charles Lamb"s Memoirs and Letters with the utmost delight; & not the less so for seeing such continual allusions to one ""H.C. Robinson"". Do you know such a person? And my dear brother James too, and kind-hearted Martin - these reminiscences were very pleasant to me. But of Lamb himself - what an affectionate disposition - what originality, what true wit, & what a singular, and I must say, melancholy combination of the truest & warmest piety, with the most extraordinary and irreverent profaneness. I cannot understand the union of two such opposites: but I believe there have been many other instances of it.
