Ambrose St. John
And to you especially, dear AMBROSE ST.
whom God gave me, when
He took every one else
away; who are the link between my old life and my
new; who have now for twenty-one years been so
devoted to me, so
patient, so zealous, so tender;
who have let me lean so hard upon you;
watched me so narrowly; who have never thought
of yourself, if
I was in question.—Apologia,
[From Life of Cardinal Newman, Ward.]
