  • On a bright, snowy night in December, 1871, Dr Spenlove, having been employed all the afternoon and evening in paying farewell visits to his patients, walked briskly towards his home through the narrowest and most squalid thoroughfares in Portsmouth The animation of his movements may be set down to the severity of the weather, and not to any inward cheerfulness of spiritOn a bright, snowy night in December, 1871, Dr Spenlove, having been employed all the afternoon and evening in paying farewell visits to his patients, walked briskly towards his home through the narrowest and most squalid thoroughfares in Portsmouth The animation of his movements may be set down to the severity of the weather, and not to any inward cheerfulness of spirits, for as he passed familiar landmarks, he looked at them with a certain regret, which men devoid of sentiment would have pronounced an indication of a weak nature In this opinion, however, they would have been wrong, for Dr Spenlove s intended departure early the following morning from a field which had strong claims upon his sympathies was dictated by a law of inexorable necessity He was a practitioner of considerable skill, and he had conscientiously striven to achieve a reputation in some measure commensurate with his abilities From a worldly point of view his efforts had been attended with mortifying failure he had not only been unsuccessful in earning a bare livelihood, but he had completely exhausted the limited resources with which he had started upon his career he had, over, endured severe privation, and an opening presenting itself in the wider field of London, he had accepted it with gladness and reluctance With gladness, because he was an ambitious man, and had desires apart from his profession with reluctance, because it pained him to bid farewell to patients in whom he took a genuine interest, and whom he would have liked to continue to befriend.
