From The Letters of Edward Fitzgerald, Volume III: 1867 - 1876, edited by Alfred & Annabelle Terhune
"Here all is dismal enough, with Snow, Fog, and -- Christmas, I am afraid -- when the shops are all shut, and the Sailors all drunker than usual. I begin almost to advocate Tee-totalism -- except in one's own case."
From a letter to Hallam Tennyson, dated Lowestoft, Christmas Day, 1874
