On March 28, 1879
Venerable John Henry Newman, C.O., wrote to a friend about the difficulty he was having answering all the letters of congratulations he was getting from various well-wishers who had heard that he was to be made a Cardinal.
"I am overwhelmed and wearied out with answering letters so joyful and affectionate that I should be as hard as a stone, and as cruel as an hyena, and as ungrateful as a wild cat, if I did not welcome them; but they try me much ... P.S.-Sometimes I have been at my desk from 9 A.M. to 10 P.M. with hardly any stop."
