Daily Dose

From William Cowper's Letters: A Selection, edited by E. V. Lucas


"My dear Friend -- Following your good example, I lay before me a sheet of my largest paper.  It was this moment fair and unblemished, but I have begun to blot it, and having begun, am not likely to cease till I have spoiled it,"

From a letter to the Rev. John Newton, dated Sept. 18, 1784
