Don't say you're sorry to see an old face again, Mrs. Disney. I told Mr. Martin that if you should ever be ill and want nursing I'd come to nurse you鈥攊f you were at the other end of the world鈥攁nd Mr. Martin wrote and told me you wanted an old servant's care and experience to get you over your illness鈥攁nd here I am. I've come every inch of the way without stopping, except at the buffets, and all I can say is Rome is a long way from everywhere, and the country I've come through isn't to be compared with Cornwall. 鈥楢ll right. If it is to be war to the knife, so let it be. But I tell you plainly that no one will believe a word you say.鈥? That we may be Thy People, Thou our Lord. 北京赛车pk10历史数据 鈥楢ll right. If it is to be war to the knife, so let it be. But I tell you plainly that no one will believe a word you say.鈥? "Perchance she died in youth: it may be bowed 鈥榃hat to me was most remarkable,鈥?wrote Mr. Clark afterwards, 鈥榳as her perfect cheerfulness and happiness; thinking of everything and every one around her, and talking of the most common things, and doing it all in the light of Eternity; standing on the very brink of another world, and yet forgetting nothing, but thinking of almost everything in this.... It was at times even amusing, for there was no sadness in her perpetual sunshine.鈥? The book I think to be a good little book. It is readable by all, old and young, and it gives, I believe accurately, both an account of Caesar鈥檚 Commentaries 鈥?which of course was the primary intention 鈥?and the chief circumstances of the great Roman鈥檚 life. A well-educated girl who had read it and remembered it would perhaps know as much about Caesar and his writings as she need know. Beyond the consolation of thinking as I do about it, I got very little gratification from the work. Nobody praised it. One very old and very learned friend to whom I sent it thanked me for my 鈥渃omic Caesar,鈥?but said no more. I do not suppose that he intended to run a dagger into me. Of any suffering from such wounds, I think, while living, I never showed a sign; but still I have suffered occasionally. There was, however, probably present to my friend鈥檚 mind, and to that of others, a feeling that a man who had spent his life in writing English novels could not be fit to write about Caesar. It was as when an amateur gets a picture hung on the walls of the Academy. What business had I there? Ne sutor ultra crepidam. In the press it was most faintly damned by most faint praise. Nevertheless, having read the book again within the last month or two, I make bold to say that it is a good book. The series, I believe, has done very well. I am sure that it ought to do well in years to come, for, putting aside Caesar, the work has been done with infinite scholarship, and very generally with a light hand. With the leave of my sententious and sonorous friend, who had not endured that subjects which had been grave to him should be treated irreverently, I will say that such a work, unless it be light, cannot answer the purpose for which it is intended. It was not exactly a schoolbook that was wanted, but something that would carry the purposes of the schoolroom even into the leisure hours of adult pupils. Nothing was ever better suited for such a purpose than the Iliad and the Odyssey, as done by Mr. Collins. The Virgil, also done by him, is very good; and so is the Aristophanes by the same hand. She was full of a childish pleasure in the idea of their journey, and the realization of a dream which most of us have dreamt a long time before it assumed the shape of earthly things鈥攖he dream of Rome. He knew this to be a sound and sensible plan, but he did not in the least wish to assent to it. In the first place, it would look as if he{160} acknowledged some basis of reason in his wife鈥檚 attitude the evening before; in the second place, he would no longer have those half-hours after dinner in his library with Norah and her brother. He knew that they had become the pearl of the day to him. TO MISS 鈥楲EILA鈥?HAMILTON. 鈥楧ec. 21. 鈥楢nd do you want my opinion on the subject?鈥?asked the Mayoress. 鈥楤ut I do mind that. It was idiotic of me, and it was ungrateful of me. I should have known you better than that.鈥? 鈥楢ll right. If it is to be war to the knife, so let it be. But I tell you plainly that no one will believe a word you say.鈥? He delighted in her, in the astonishing irony of her calling him 鈥榮ir鈥?again. He had deserved it too, for he had spoken to her with the old office manner.
