  "It is a wretched fate, generally, to be cut off from all intercourse with the relatives and friends with whom one's first years passed. There are affections and interests between you and them, which can never exist between later friends and familiars, however dear these may become. No matter how true and kind may be the intimates of mature life, there will always be wanting some thing to our intercourse with them, and that something is the common interests which they have whose first decade, or score of years, was spent amid the self-same scenes and people." A. J. Campbell.
