Exceptional and most fortunate being - you are alone among millions if you feel at peace and unembittered by disappointed ambitions and the futil- ity of life. As for me I am chronically unhappy. The corners of the world are always cutting into my sensibilities, and the re— frain of Aldrich‘s song is ever in my mind — "I wonder what day of the week, I wonder what month of the year!" I have had a great deal of unavoidable sorrow in my life, and I must confess that I have added to it by the follies which are strewn behind me like dead leaves. Since I last saw you I have suffered much from in— somnia. The least excitement puts me off my sleep, and every so- cial pleasure is followed by the agonies which shattered nerves alone can inflict. It is not (no) use, however. I cannot live like an ascetic; I must have my cakes and ale, though the demons of sleeplessness usuriously discounts every enjoyment. Materially, that is as far as salary and duties go - I am pleasantly situated in Boston. I came here about six months ago after spending eighteen months in England; and I have almost lost my old attachment to New York. My principal chum here is J. B. Millet, a brother of Frank's, and I hobnob a good deal with the witty T. B. Aldrich, who arrived home from a trip to Russia, etc- last Tuesday. Every two or three months I run into New York, and there I see among others Edgar F. and Fnank Saltus. Poor Saltus is an invalid - no wonder! — but he laughs in the face of His Skeleton Majesty and will depart this life with an epigram. Edgar is fat and prosperous — much given to choice dinners at the Union Club and subsequent b and s'as at Del— monico's. I called with him to see Oscar Wilde a few weeks ago - that insincere and calculating mountebank who affects an interest in you. I dislike that fellow — there is such an evident vein of humbug in him, but he is tremendously clever, - an immeasurablgg clever man and an immeasurable humbug combined in one. You pro a- ably know better than I do whether you are likely to see him. This is the longest letter I've written in an age, my dear boy, and I must close it. I remember Du Bois in a most friendly way, and beg that you will remenber me to him. If he ever comes this way, tell him that I shall have a welcome for him, as I will also have for you. My dear Stoddard, goodbye, write soon, and believe me to be Cordially and sincerely yours [Charles Warren Stoddard] William H.
