鈥楢ugust 6, 1853. Thus blow upon blow had fallen between the years of thirty and fifty upon the golden staff of Charlotte Tucker鈥檚 Will. Her Father鈥檚 death; the death of Robert; the death of Letitia; the death of her Mother; the death of Fanny; all these one after another make a list of sorrows. Doubtless, the most keen and bitter losses which she had to endure were, above all, the death of her almost idolised Father, and the death of Letitia. No other pain would equal these, dearly as she loved her brother Robert, her Mother, and Fanny, until her own peculiar sister-friend, Laura Hamilton, should be summoned away.
