The New Year begins with a line from Mrs. Wade to Mrs. Hamilton, in reference to the recent Conference:鈥? Frederick did what he could to divert the attention of the court at Reinsberg by multiplying gayeties of every kind. There was feasting, and music, and dancing, and theatric exhibitions, often continuing until four o鈥檆lock in the morning. In the mean time couriers were coming and going. Troops were moving. Provisions and the materiel of war were accumulating. Anxious embassadors watched every movement of the king鈥檚 hand, weighed every word which escaped his lips, and tried every adroit measure to elicit from him his secret.

In a matter of such importance it is right to wait for the advice of such an Apostolic man.... I wait passively.

Oh what a blessing it is that it is indeed Home.... Dear Otho has had a sorely trying journey, wintry and wearisome indeed; but there is no shadow, never can be a shadow, on the Home to which he is bound. He will never have to leave it again, to learn the lesson of patience in pain. He will, through his Lord鈥檚 merits, be ready there to welcome the dear ones whom he is now leaving behind,鈥攚hen they too may quit their school, and go to their Father in Heaven.... 鈥淚t seems that in Poland the Austrians have only to stoop and pick up what they like. If the court of Vienna has the intention to dismember that kingdom, its neighbors will have the right to take their share.鈥?85 F.鈥? What mad Conceptions some have had of Thee!
