Letter from Sydney Smith to Lady Georgiana...
Dear Georgiana, Nobody has suffered more from low spirits than I have—so I feel for you. Here are my prescriptions; 1st Live as well as you dare. 2nd Go into the shower-bath with a small quantity of water at a temperature low enough to give you a slight sensation of cold. 3rd Amusing books. 4th Short views of human life—not further than dinner or tea. 5th Be as busy as you can. 6th See as much...
Just watched Manhattan Murder Mystery. What a great movie, huh?
I love coming home exhausted and smelling like food after a good day. Will sleep so well. Love the kitchen!
