Or if not thus, I'm sure he wou'd despise, After alluding to the manner of her earlier English life, and contrasting it with the manner of her existence at Batala, where 鈥榯wo chairs were placed on two sides of a table in a large and almost unfurnished room,鈥?Mr. Clark continues: 鈥楳iss Tucker ate very little. She always told us to tell her beforehand if we were going to see her, in order that she might have something to place before us. There was then no railway; and everything had to be brought from Amritsar once or twice a week. The bread often became very hard. She sometimes said, 鈥淒o try this piece; it seems a little softer.鈥?Her guests were thinking all the time of her tender gums, and of her teeth which were no longer young.鈥? Of Man's almost Omnipotent Amours. The Chief's face was expressive of satisfaction in the highest degree, and could hardly have deceived the young Englishman with reference to what was passing in his thoughts. They left the office together at twilight and strolled beyond the village by a pleasant walk to the White House. It was a clear, calm evening, with hardly a sound to break the stillness but a cow-bell tinkling in the distance, the hum of insects and the rushing water. As they entered a grove of stately trees they beheld an unexpected vision. It was Abbie. Her proud dark eyes were fixed upon the ground as though some passion or struggle were raging within.
