179. AFFLICTION, Schooled in.—

is no degree of affliction, produced by the loss
of those dear to us, which experience has not
taught me to estimate. I have ever found
time and silence the only medicine, and these
but assuage, they never can suppress, the deep
drawn sigh which recollection forever brings
up, until recollection and life are extinguished
To John Adams. Washington ed. vi, 221.
(M. 1813)
