Evidence

21 August 1886: "It is a great effort to me to think of moving; my feeling of desolation makes it difficult for me to decide on any change, and yet I am always eager to be at work. A passage in Macaulay"s Essay on Atterbury struck me very much the other day. He says: ""Grief, which disposes gentle natures to retirement, to inaction and to meditation, only makes restless spirits more restless."" I am sure this is the case with me, I must be always doing something. My reading, this past summer, has chiefly been Macaulay"s History. It has been of immense interest to me, but I forget it almost as fast as I read it. My chief time for reading is in the night if I happen to wake, or in the early morning."
