Excerpt from The Josephine Gallery

Yet it was different with my father and young Wal dern. They kept their word and faith. They grew sober, but their hearts beat warmly, even in riper years. Their paths in life were very distinct, but their souls always turned towards each other, notwithstanding the distance which separated them. They married, but they never forgot their brotherlike tenderness. Once every year they visited each other, notwithstanding they were separated by a three days' journey. And even when they each had the engagements Of an Office, and a family Of children, they devoted two or three weeks to their annual visit.

For several years, at first, the visits took place alternately at their different homes. Afterwards, it was usually my father who made the journey, and was entertained by his friends. I do not know how this happened; but Wald'ern was rich by marriage and inheritance, dwelt in the, city and held an Office at court, which gave him a great deal of occupation; these rea sons might have kept him at home. My father held the Office Of head Forester in a village; his house had no super?uous room for guests accustomed to luxury; perhaps it was more pleasant for him to see, once a year, the varied bustle Of the city, than for the courtier to inspect the woodcutting in a forest, or the table in a village; for some reason, however, it came at last to be the custom for my father, every summer, to take a jour ney and visit his friend.
