313. To Thomas Poole Pub. Thomas Poole, ii. 1. [ January 1800] 1 . . . the situation, is delicious; all I could wish. . . . 2 Sara being Sara, and I being I, we must live in a town or else close to one, so that she may have neighbours and acquaintances. For my friends form not that society which is of itself sufficient to a woman. I know nowhere else but Stowey (for to Bristol my objections are insurmountable), but our old house in Stowey, and that situation will not do for us. God knows where we can go; for that situation which suits my wife does not suit me, and what suits me does not suit my wife. 3 However, that which is, is, -- a truth which always remains equally clear, but not always equally pleasant. . . .
