    Remarks that friends who have died 'loving you, love you still; and you love them always. They are not really gone, those dear hearts and true; they are only gone into the next room: and you will presently get up and follow them, and yonder door will close upon you, and you will be no more seen' (126). Also eulogises the recently deceased Prince Albert as a 'Wise, just, moderate [...] friend of science' (128).
