Dear Sir -- I am in a Madhouse & quite forget your Name or who
you Are. You must excuse me for I have nothing to communicate
or tell you of & why I am shut up I don't know I have nothing to
say so I conclude.

Yours respectfully

John Clare


Clare's letter above strikes me as one of the saddest declarations ever written by anyone anywhere.
