THE

IDLER IN ITALY.

-00

May 8th, 1828, half-past eleven at night. The only melancholy hours that I ever passed at the beautiful Villa Palatina, were those which I spent there last evening. Our kind and amiable friend its owner, Mr. Mills, insisted that our last dinner at Rome should be partaken of beneath his roof, and collected some of the persons we most value to meet us. Will the same party ever again meet together? The thought occurred to me more than

? once during the evening, and added to my tristesse. Alas ! who can hope, much less count, on what a short time may bring forth. Death is ever hovering within reach of his prey, and if the grim tyrant spares some, during a few brief

years,

he
may

snatch away those whose loss destroys all the happiness of the survivors.
