THACKERY ON DEATH.
The following is taken from a letter
of condolence written by Thackery to
Mrs. Proctor on the death of her moth
er, shortly before Thackeray's death.
The letter is found in the biographical
introduction to "Denis Duval," the
twelfth in the valuable biographical
edit.on of Thackeray's complete works
published in the United States by
Harper & Bros., and shows the great
novelist as he was at heart, earnest
and sublime; not the cynic, the satir
ist that so many have considered him.
The introduction to the thirteen vol
umes of this new edition constitute
the only biography in existence of
"Thinking of death," says Thacke
ray, "is thinking of God inscrutable,
immeasurable, endless, beginningless,
supreme, awfully solitary. Little chil

their sweet, cold hands and smiling
faces, that drop indilferent when you

we deplore the old, who have had
enough of living and striving,and have
buried so many others and must be
weary of living it seems time for
them to go for where 's the pleasure
of staying when the feast is over, and
the 'flowers withered, and the guests
gone? Isn't it better to blow the HghU
out than sit on among the broken
meats, and collapsed jellies and vapid
heeltaps? I go to what I don't know
but to God's next world, which is
His and He made it. One paces up
and down the shore yet awhile, and
looks toward the unknown ocean, and
thinks of the traveler whose boat .sail
