This hour! that metal rings well. Carry this promptness of action with thee, young man, into the world thou art just entering, and it will ensure thee success in the field or in the cabinet, or wherever thy destinies lead thee. To such energies as thine nothing will seem impossible. Whatever thou dost resolve thou wilt achieve, and the difficulties thou mayst encounter in the pursuit of an object will augment, in the same proportion, thy diligence. Nil desperandum is the motto of such a mind as thine. I am no necromancer, but I am deeply read in the countenances of men.
