Wm to H'ry, Feb. 20, 1899. Age: 57

Wm had an impressive library in Cambridge, but preferred to write in his attic:

"When I get into my bare attic room, fifty-two feet long and nothing in it but a table, a standing desk, and an arm chair, paper inkstand and the books I bring up; flooded with warm winter sunshine, I get a feeling of seclusion and power which I am sure that nothing on the Continent of Europe could give me."

Attic window, upper left?

Not good enough for writing...
