I had such a headache on Christmas day, that I feared you would find me quite stupid.

Henry Theodore Tuckerman (1813-1871) was an American writer, essayist and critic. He wrote extensively both in prose and verse. He travelled much in Italy, which influenced his choice of subjects in his earlier writings. These include The Italian Sketch-book (1835); Isabel, or Sicily: A Pilgrimage (1839); two volumes of verse, Poems (1851) and A Sheaf of Verse (1864), among many others. He was prominent in the literary life of New York City after 1845. Tuckerman also wrote articles for The Knickerbocker magazine including "Love in a Lazzaret" (1838), a vignette from his travels in Italy, "New York Artists" (1856), and "Paris and Life There" (1861).
