… and what tea would be better suited to celebrate his birthday than one poured from the Trafalgar teapot? One with a lacing of rum…

Featuring the Trafalgar captains (Old Cuddy can be seen on the left), this is a must-have for any naval aficionado. And of course, no celebratory birthday supper would be complete without “Admiral Collingwood” – Doddington’s truly heroic cheese!

Tea or cheese or rum or port: here’s to the most formidable Vice Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood, “that noble fellow Collingwood”: may he never be forgotten and always remembered with greatest fondness and admiration!

Here’s to many happy returns of Molly! *semaphoring a greeting from the colonies, where cheeses have boring labels*

To Dr. Alexander Carlyle

My dear Sir, – I am very much obliged to you for your kind letter, congratulating me on my return to the enjoyment of as much comfort and happiness as any man has a right to expect in this world. . . . I am sorry to find you do not hear as well as you did. I do not hear as I did formerly. I am not short sighted, but I do not see as I did formerly, and sometimes can scarce read without spectacles. In ten years I think I shall be as old a man as you are now*, but this is a subject I contemplate with pleasure rather than regret. To live a good life has been my care, ever since I had care: to live a long one has never given me a thought.

*Collingwood was 53, Carlyle was 80.

Oh, I missed his birthday :(
*apologises*

But I am intending to make it to Tynemouth to Toast the Admiral next Friday, so maybe that will make up for it :)
