It has given me a deal of trouble to satisfy the anxiety of themother, lest (as she says) "they should inconvenience the gentleman."
In the evening I would not resist telling the story to a personwho, I thought, possessed some natural feeling, because he was aman of understanding. But what a mistake I made. He maintainedit was very wrong of Charlotte, that we should not deceive children,that such things occasioned countless mistakes and superstitions,from which we were bound to protect the young. It occurred to methen, that this very man had been baptised only a week before; soI said nothing further, but maintained the justice of my ownconvictions. We should deal with children as God deals with us,we are happiest under the influence of innocent delusions.
I bite my lips, and feel infinite scorn for those who tell me tobe resigned, because there is no help for it. Let me escape fromthe yoke of such silly subterfuges! I ramble through the woods;and when I return to Charlotte, and find Albert sitting by herside in the summer-house in the garden, I am unable to bear it,behave like a fool, and commit a thousand extravagances. "ForHeaven's sake," said Charlotte today, "let us have no more sceneslike those of last night! You terrify me when you are so violent."Between ourselves, I am always away now when he visits her: and Ifeel delighted when I find her alone.
We have only, then, to relate conscientiously the facts which ourdiligent labour has enabled us to collect, to give the lettersof the deceased, and to pay particular attention to the slightestfragment from his pen, more especially as it is so difficult todiscover the real and correct motives of men who are not of thecommon order.
The dance was not yet finished when the lightning which had forsome time been seen in the horizon, and which I had asserted toproceed entirely from heat, grew more violent; and the thunder washeard above the music. When any distress or terror surprises usin the midst of our amusements, it naturally makes a deeper impressionthan at other times, either because the contrast makes us morekeenly susceptible, or rather perhaps because our senses are thenmore open to impressions, and the shock is consequently stronger.To this cause I must ascribe the fright and shrieks of the ladies.One sagaciously sat down in a corner with her back to the window,and held her fingers to her ears; a second knelt down before her,and hid her face in her lap; a third threw herself between them,and embraced her sister with a thousand tears; some insisted ongoing home; others, unconscious of their actions, wanted sufficientpresence of mind to repress the impertinence of their young partners,who sought to direct to themselves those sighs which the lips ofour agitated beauties intended for heaven. Some of the gentlemenhad gone down-stairs to smoke a quiet cigar, and the rest of thecompany gladly embraced a happy suggestion of the hostess to retireinto another room which was provided with shutters and curtains.We had hardly got there, when Charlotte placed the chairs in acircle; and, when the company had sat down in compliance with herrequest, she forthwith proposed a round game.
I have made all sorts of acquaintances, but have as yet found nosociety. I know not what attraction I possess for the people, somany of them like me, and attach themselves to me; and then I feelsorry when the road we pursue together goes only a short distance.If you inquire what the people are like here, I must answer, "Thesame as everywhere." The human race is but a monotonous affair.Most of them labour the greater part of their time for meresubsistence; and the scanty portion of freedom which remains tothem so troubles them that they use every exertion to get rid ofit. Oh, the destiny of man!
I implore your attention. It is all over with me. I can supportthis state no longer. To-day I was sitting by Charlotte. She wasplaying upon her piano a succession of delightful melodies, withsuch intense expression! Her little sister was dressing her dollupon my lap. The tears came into my eyes. I leaned down, andlooked intently at her wedding-ring: my tears fell -- immediatelyshe began to play that favourite, that divine, air which has sooften enchanted me. I felt comfort from a recollection of thepast, of those bygone days when that air was familiar to me; andthen I recalled all the sorrows and the disappointments which Ihad since endured. I paced with hasty strides through the room,my heart became convulsed with painful emotions. At length Iwent up to her, and exclaimed With eagerness, "For Heaven's sake,play that air no longer!" She stopped, and looked steadfastly atme. She then said, with a smile which sunk deep into my heart,"Werther, you are ill: your dearest food is distasteful to you.But go, I entreat you, and endeavour to compose yourself." Itore myself away. God, thou seest my torments, and wilt end them!
I think I have not yet related what happened as we rode home fromthe ball, nor have I time to tell you now. It was a most magnificentsunrise: the whole country was refreshed, and the rain fell dropby drop from the trees in the forest. Our companions were asleep.Charlotte asked me if I did not wish to sleep also, and begged ofme not to make any ceremony on her account. Looking steadfastlyat her, I answered, "As long as I see those eyes open, there isno fear of my falling asleep." We both continued awake till wereached her door. The maid opened it softly, and assured her, inanswer to her inquiries, that her father and the children werewell, and still sleeping. I left her asking permission to visither in the course of the day. She consented, and I went, and,since that time, sun, moon, and stars may pursue their course: Iknow not whether it is day or night; the whole world is nothingto me.
