Carton’s Alcohol Bottles
To all of my comrades I would like you to help me in the healing process of Sydney Carton. We are here to drown the sorrows of men and take away their problems. I have personally helped many people find an escape from their stressful lives and I help them make it all go away. This man however has really stood out to me. He seemed so sad, “Sadly, sadly, the sun rose; it rose up upon no sadder sight than the man of good abilities and good emotions, incapable of the direct exercise, incapable of his own help and his own happiness, sensible of the blight on him, and resigning himself to let it eat him away” (Dickens.II.119). I know he is a good man whenever I enter his body I can see the goodness in him and how capable he could be in life but he choose to deny that he could ever be successful and turned to me of help. “He resorted to his pint of wine for consolation, drank it all in a few minutes, and fell asleep on his arms, with his hair straggling over the table, and a long winding-sheet in the candle dripping down upon him” (Dickens.II.112). At least I’m always there for him when he needs me and he can come to me when he needs consulting. Sometimes I wonder how this man could be as low as him yet he is the one who has all the smarts and knows everything, but then I found out. “The old Sydney Carton from Shrewsbury School, said Stryver, nodding his head over him as he reviewed him in the present and the past, the old Seesaw Sydney. Up one minute down the next; now in spirits and now in despondency” (Dickens.II.117).
