#4900532sympathy I am glad to see that you so healthily & happily look upon Death My own views concerning death have changed very much since I walked with Nature & I almost think of copying some thoughts for you from my note book Mrs Hutchings & I were speaking of death sorrows some time ago She said that in her opinion those were the happiest who possessed the greatest number of large griefs I wish that you were with us among these
