1846 Lamb (C.) An original and presumably unpublished MS. Poem by Mary Lamb to Emma Isola, transcribed in the handwriting of Charles Lamb, with a Note by the latter respecting an allusion to Sarah Coleridge, on one sheet, as follows:

To Emma, learning Latin, and desponding.
Droop not, dear Emma, dry those falling tears,
And call up smiles into thy pallid face,
Pallid and care-worn with thy arduous race.

In few brief months thou hast done the work of years.
In new tasks hardest still the first appears.

A right good Scholar shalt thou one day be,
And that no distant one; nay, even She,
Who now to thee a star far off appears,
That most rare Latinist, the Northern Maid-
The language-loving Sarah of the Lake-
Shall hail thee Sister Linguist. This will make
Thy friends, who now afford thee careful aid,
A recompence most rich for all their pains,
Counting thy acquisitions their best gains.

Enfield, 22 Augst., 1827.

our honoured friend, S. T. Coleridge, Esqr., and translatress
