Alfred Tennyson to Lady Augusta Bruce, 12 May 1863, after being sent an "Album" belonging to Queen Victoria, with the request that he write something in it before returning it: "I had not time yesterday to overlook the volume which Her Majesty sent me. I did but see the inscription in the beginning by the Duchess of Kent and Goethe"s ""Edel sei der Mensch"" in the Prince"s handwriting -- a poem which has always appeared to me one of the grandest things which Goethe or any other man has written."
