But we must not forget one remarkable circumstance.We mayobserve from the character of Werther's correspondence, thathe had never affected to conceal his anxious desire to quitthis world.He had often discussed the subject with Albert;and, between the latter and Charlotte, it had not unfrequentlyformed a topic of conversation.Albert was so opposed to the veryidea of such an action, that, with a degree of irritation unusualin him, he had more than once given Werther to understand that hedoubted the seriousness of his threats, and not only turned theminto ridicule, but caused Charlotte to share his feelings ofincredulity.Her heart was thus tranquillised when she feltdisposed to view the melancholy subject in a serious point ofview, though she never communicated to her husband theapprehensions she sometimes experienced.

I knew that I was dear to you; I saw it in your first entrancinglook, knew it by the first pressure of your hand; but when I wasabsent from you, when I saw Albert at your side, my doubts andfears returned.

Everything passes away; but a whole eternity could not extinguishthe living flame which was yesterday kindled by your lips, andwhich now burns within me.She loves meYes,Charlotte, you are mine for ever

Albert, upon his return, was received by Charlotte withillconcealed embarrassment.He was himself out of humour; hisbusiness was unfinished; and he had just discovered that theneighbouring official with whom he had to deal, was an obstinateand narrowminded personage.Many things had occurred to irritatehim.

And what do they mean by saying Albert is your husband?He maybe so for this world; and in this world it is a sin to love you,to wish to tear you from his embrace.Yes, it is a crime; and Isuffer the punishment, but I have enjoyed the full delight ofmy sin.I have inhaled a balm that has revived my soul.Fromthis hour you are mine; yes, Charlotte, you are mineI gobefore you.I go to my Father and to your Father.I will pourout my sorrows before him, and he will give me comfort till youarrive.Then will I fly to meet you.I will claim you, andremain your eternal embrace, in the presence of the Almighty.

He retired to bed, and slept to a late hour.The next morning hisservant, upon being called to bring his coffee, found him writing.He was adding, to Charlotte, what we here annex.

Be so good as to lend me your pistols for a journey.Adieu."

For the last, last time I open these eyes.Alas put on mourning: your child, your friend, your lover,draws near his endThe lastToday I stand erect in all my strengthtomorrow, cold and stark, I shall lie extended upon the ground.To die and the next we are parted, severed perhaps for everHow can I, how can you,be annihilated?We exist.What is annihilation?A mere word,an unmeaning sound that fixes no impression on the mind.Dead,CharlotteI had a friend once who was everything to me in early youth.She died.I followed her hearse; I stood by her grave when thecoffin was lowered; and when I heard the creaking of the cordsas they were loosened and drawn up, when the first shovelfulof earth was thrown in, and the coffin returned a hollow sound,which grew fainter and fainter till all was completely coveredover, I threw myself on the ground; my heart was smitten, grieved,shattered, rent but I neither knew what had happened, nor whatwas to happen to me.DeathI understand not the words. Forgive, oh, forgive meThou angelStill burns upon my lips the sacred fire theyreceived from thine.New torrents of delight overwhelm my soul.Forgive me, oh, forgive

The whole force of these words fell upon the unfortunate Werther.Full of despair, he threw himself at Charlotte's feet, seized herhands, and pressed them to his eyes and to his forehead.Anapprehension of his fatal project now struck her for the firsttime.Her senses were bewildered: she held his hands, pressedthem to her bosom; and, leaning toward him with emotions of thetenderest pity, her warm cheek touched his.They lost sight ofeverything.The world disappeared from their eyes.He claspedher in his arms, strained her to his bosom, and covered her tremblinglips with passionate kisses."Werther" and, with a feeble hand,she pushed him from her.At length, with the firm voice of virtue,she exclaimed, "WertherYou shall never seeme any more but oneword more, one last adieu"

Do you remember the flowers you sent me, when, at that crowdedassembly, you could neither speak nor extend your hand to me?Half the night I was on my knees before those flowers, and Iregarded them as the pledges of your love; but those impressionsgrew fainter, and were at length effaced.

Albert, upon his return, was received by Charlotte withillconcealed embarrassment.He was himself out of humour; hisbusiness was unfinished; and he had just discovered that theneighbouring official with whom he had to deal, was an obstinateand narrowminded personage.Many things had occurred to irritatehim.

About eleven o'clock Werther asked his servant if Albert hadreturned.He answered, "Yes;" for he had seen him pass on horseback:upon which Werther sent him the following note, unsealed:

Everything passes away; but a whole eternity could not extinguishthe living flame which was yesterday kindled by your lips, andwhich now burns within me.She loves meYes,Charlotte, you are mine for ever

I do not dream, I do not rave.Drawing nearer to the grave myperceptions become clearer.We shall exist; we shall see eachother again; we shall behold your mother; I shall behold her, andexpose to her my inmost heart.Your mother your image"
