Ambrose St. John

And to you especially, dear AMBROSE ST. JOHN;
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; who have
watched me so narrowly; who have never thought
of yourself, if I was in question.—Apologia, 1864.

[From Life of Cardinal Newman, Ward.]
