In his last years, Carroll continued to work on several projects relating to mathematics and logic. His main sources of amusement were his friendships with "child friends," his frequent trips to London to attend the theater, and some occasional sketching (he had given up photography in 1880). Carroll died of a lung ailment on 14 January 1898.
