Title followed by: "And can I ever cease to be / Affectionate and kind to Thee / Who wast so very kind to me / My Mother". About this period the newspapers informed the public that Lord Brougham was paying a visit to his mother at Brougham-hall, and gave some particulars of the domestic affairs of his Lordship, with anecdotes of his venerable parent. From these, H.B. has been able to sketch the scene, the primitive simplicity of which has suggested the quotation from the well-known poem of "My Mother."
