Letter Signed ‘Herbert Spencer’, to Lady Lubbock, unable to accept her invitation, reflecting on the life of an invalid. 2 pp. 7 x 4 inches, in good condition. Fairfield, Pewsey, Wilts., 22 June 1894. Herbert Spencer (1820-1903), philosopher. “I have not been to the house of a friend for these two years, and think it very doubtful whether I shall ever go to one again. My life is spent now in struggling on to do a little more of my task, the little more becoming continually less, but the execution of that little more being the only thing about which I care.”
