4-7-79 鈥淲hat do you propose to do for a living?鈥? Thinking it better that I should not see Christina, I left Theobald near Battersby and walked back to the station. On my way I was pleased to reflect that Ernest鈥檚 father was less of a fool than I had taken him to be, and had the greater hopes, therefore, that his son鈥檚 blunders might be due to postnatal, rather than congenital misfortunes. Accidents which happen to a man before he is born, in the persons of his ancestors, will, if he remembers them at all, leave an indelible impression on him; they will have moulded his character that, do what he will it is hardly possible for him to escape their consequences. If a man is to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, he must do so, not only as a little child, but as a little embryo, or rather as a little zoosperm 鈥?and not only this, but as one that has come of zoosperms which have entered into the Kingdom of Heaven before him for many generations. Accidents which occur for the first time, and belong to the period since a man鈥檚 last birth, are not, as a general rule, so permanent in their effects, though of course they may sometimes be so.

There was no doubt that Theobald passed peacefully away during his sleep. Can a man who died thus be said to have died at all? He has presented the phenomena of death to other people, but in respect of himself he has not only not died, but has not even thought that he was going to die. This is not more than half dying, but then neither was his life more than half living. He presented so many of the phenomena of living that I suppose on the whole it would be less trouble to think of him as having been alive than as never having been born at all, but this is only possible because association does not stick to the strict letter of its bond. 鈥淗allo, Martin!鈥? 鈥淲hy so?鈥?said I, feeling as though such a letter as this should have been held sacred from the public gaze. Dear me, you have no lamp here! said a voice, which, though mellow and musical in quality, was too loud and out of harmony with the twilight mood of the occupants of the drawing-room to be pleasant.
