Lane was bitterly disappointed, for he had expected the end of his Arabian nightmare to begin a period of tranquility. First, his mother died less than a month after he turned in the proofed copy for the last number. The most important formative influence in Lane's life was gone. Then, a few weeks after his mother's death, as if in sympathy with it, Lane fell dangerously ill. He had wanted “heartily” to go someplace south, but could not leave Sophia, who was devastated by their mother's death. When sickness came later that winter, it almost put an end to him. If he experienced a mid-life crisis, it is not surprising for he faced daunting challenges. One of the most immediate was where to live. He had accomplished much during the dozen years he had devoted to literature, publishing two major books and completing a third that remained unpublished.
