Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Owen Meredith (Robert, Lord Lytton): Lucile; The Apple of Life; The Wanderer; Clytemnestra, Etc., Etc
Feelings only such as those with which, in days when there existed for me no critic less gentle than yourself, I brought to you my childish... manuscripts, - feelings only such as those which have, in later years, associated with your heart all that has moved or occupied my own,-1ead me once more to seek assurance from the grasp Of that hand which has hitherto been my guide and comfort through the life I owe to you.
And as in childhood, when existence had no toil beyond the day's simple lesson, no ambition beyond the neighboring approval of the night, I brought to you the morn ing's task for the evening's sanction, so now I bring to you this self - appointed task work of maturer years less confident indeed Of your approval, but not less confident of your love; and anxious only to realize your presence between myself and the public, and to mingle with those severer voices to Whose final sentence I submit my work the beloved and gracious accents of your own.
