Sick of the Human Countenance

Sydney Smith (1771-1845), letter to the Countess Grey (September 22, 1833):
Have you any company? For your own sakes, I wish not. You must be sick of the human countenance, and it must be a relief to you to see a cow instead of a christian.

Henry Herbert La Thangue (1859-1929), Sussex Farm
