Obtained one of the Prizes in the Government Competition. "Before his wife left him he took her by the hand, and said, 'This hand you now feel in a few hours must be cold.' At ten, p.m., she left him; and she so governed her sorrow as not to add, by the sight of her distress, to the pain of separation. Thus they parted, not with sobs and tears, but with a composed silence, each wishing to spare the other, and restraining the expression of a grief too great to be relieved by utterance."--See LORD JOHN RUSSELL's MEMOIRS of Lord William Russell. [P. 11.]
