CHARLES TEMPLETON CROCKER

STEVENSON (EGBERT Louis) .Autograph
Letter Signed. To Philip Gilbert Hamerton. La
Solitude, Hyeres-les Palmiers, Var, n. d.

8vo, eight pages.

"My dear Hamerton, I have been in a crazy state as I should
long ago have answered your kind letter. I have not been able to
read at all, or to but write a little, for ever so long; my eyes
having played me a trick. In short I am one of the handsomest
wrecks upon the shore of literature. However, we keep the galley-
fire alight and beat to quarters daily, as though she still ploughed
the main full charged with England 's thunder. If you come south,
do give us a visit. We cannot take you into the house for reasons
best known to the architect. But we should be so pleased to see
you and Mrs. Hamerton, or yourself alone, and we could talk to
you, and give you some dinner, and find a room for you within
hail. This is to be thought of: and if not now, then after, to be
put ruthlessly in act. I think it not unlikely that I may fall on
you this year; but all hangs upon my health, whose squirrel-like
evolutions supplies me with unfailing entertainment. How little
are we grateful to the gods! The invalid-bore, that well-known
person with the symptoms, is a most beautiful instance of the
kindly compensations of our destiny. I somewhat envy you your
writing; I shall never be in a boat again, nor yet in a theatre, I
fear; a short walk, a long talk these are what is left me, and
very good things, too, at least the talk. For a short walk, with
definite limits, is against the very genius of walking. The amuse-
ment is either to ramble or to travel. New views, another hill-top,
just down yon dingle ha! but another wood, I must go so far!
That is the spirit of the walker; and how can he attain to this in
the square half-mile around his house, much of it visible perhaps
from his windows. Well, we have adjusting eyes and an adjust-
able mind. We change the sliding scale of fancy; and in my mile-
long walks, I have at times got into so rich a vein of self-
deception, that I had visited empires and continents when I re-
turned. Life is the art of self-deception is that new or old? I
am a great self -deceiver ; and a more valuable quality, I know not.

Pray remember me kindly to yours, my dear Hamerton, Yours
very sincerely, Robert Louis Stevenson. ' '
