“There is room enough for a natural painture. The great vice of the present day
is bravura, an attempt to do something beyond the truth. In endeavouring to do
something better than well, they do what in reality is good for nothing. Fashion
always had, & will have, its day — but truth (in all things) only will last, and
can only have just claims on posterity.”

“But the sound of water escaping from mill-dams, &c., willows, old
rotten planks, slimy posts, and brickwork, I love such things.
Shakespeare could make everything poetical; he tells us of poor Tom's
haunts among "sheep cotes and mills." As long as I do paint, I shall
never cease to paint such places. They have always been my delight.
Still I should paint my own places best; painting is with me but another
word for feeling, and I associate "my careless boyhood" with all that
lies on the banks of the Stour; those scenes made me a painter, and I am
grateful; that is, I had often thought of pictures of them before ever I
touched a pencil, and your picture ['The White Horse'] is one of the
strongest instance I can recollect of it.”
