Memoranda 1863 6


Oh If i had a kind friend

A friend that i could trust

Twould be a source of joy to me

To know that i was […]

With one in whom i could confide

My secrets hopes and fears

and who would not in coldness turn

From me in future years

But oh fear i never shall

Have that consoling though

To help meon through lifes

cold storm

Tough [Though] very close in sought

To find this Jewel of a friend

That Poets so applaud

And as i have not found one yet

I fear its all a fraud
