鈥業 find it a good plan to go to Mrs. Elmslie鈥檚 Orphanage, and sit and listen to the lessons, and thus learn myself. The girls in their white chaddars look, generally speaking, well and happy. I was to have amused some of the younger ones last Sunday with Bible pictures; but when I had had the sad letters I gave up my intention of helping sweet Mrs. Elmslie in this way. I hope to do so another time.鈥? From the Journal entries it is evident that Miss Tucker gave herself only one clear day of rest鈥攁nd that day a Sunday鈥攆or indulgence in any wise of her sorrow. She had the telegram on a Saturday; and on Monday the usual round of visiting went on.  It is always a difficult question to decide in such cases what does or does not constitute luxury. For example, the number of servants kept, which often startles an Englishman, is unavoidable to some extent, arising from the very low wages given, and the small amount of work which each servant will undertake. Indian servants sleep often in the verandah or in outside huts, and provide their own food out of their small wages; so, keeping several of them is a very different matter from keeping many English servants. Moreover, an Englishman, still more an Englishwoman, labouring in such a climate as that of India, must as a matter of simple safety have many things which in England would be entirely needless. To walk any distance under the heat of the Indian sun would for the ordinary European often mean death. To 鈥榬ough it,鈥?to brave the climate, to be reckless of hardships, would in the majority of instances be tantamount to suicide. Yet, on the other hand, it may well be that under the guise of necessity some things not necessary have here and there crept in. A story has been told of an officer, himself a hearty supporter of Missions, who received a very unfavourable impression of one particular Missionary from observing the large amount of comfortable furniture which arrived at the said Missionary鈥檚 bungalow, for the latter鈥檚 use. The officer felt at once, as he said, that the Missionary 鈥榳as not made of the right stuff.鈥?He may have judged hastily, and he may have been mistaken. It is by no means impossible that the Missionary may have been 鈥榦f the right stuff,鈥?despite his superabundance of home-comforts. Nevertheless, such judgments will be passed, and it is well if Missionaries can live a life that shall render them uncalled for. 丁香五月啪啪,激情综合,色久久,色久久综合网,五月婷婷开心中文字幕 鈥業 shall not do that, you may depend. I have been well educated, thanks to Lady Farrington. I am not afraid of work, and I am well able to take care of myself. At any rate I look to you for nothing, and all I wish now is to get away from you and this place.鈥? On reaching home another trial assailed her. One of her most trusted servants, mentioned repeatedly as V., proved to be utterly dishonest, and had to be dismissed. Miss Tucker felt this too very acutely. 鈥業n all my Missionary life,鈥?she wrote on July 16, 鈥業 never knew such a year as this.鈥? 鈥榊our sweet Mother will wonder at not receiving the little book which I promised to send her; but our bookseller, from whom I ordered the copy, has been unable to get it yet. I will tell you something that may cause delay. Of course I looked with some interest at the illustrations which my Publisher sent me; but I was not a little surprised in the last one to find one whom I considered to be a man represented as a bear! He was bearish in character certainly, but still鈥攃ertainly not a bear in shape.
