Charles Spurgeon’s Letters-Letter 201

TO VARIOUS FRIENDS

To [Mr. John Ruskin].

CLAPHAM, Nov. 26, 1862.

MY DEAR MR. RUSKIN, —

I thought you had cast me off; but I perceive that you let me alone when all is right, and only look me up when you are getting disgusted with me. May that disgust increase if it shall bring me oftener into your company!

I shall be delighted to see you to-morrow, lucre, at any time from 10 to 12 if this will suit you.

I wish I had a den in the Alps to go to; but it is of no use for me to grow surly, for I am compelled to live amongst you sinners, and however disgusted I may get with you all, I must put up with you, for neither Nature nor Providence will afford a den for me.

Yours ever most truly and affectionately,

C. H. SPURGEON.
