� * In the eyes of the parliamentarians of London, who knew nothing of the country or the work, the sum seemed enormous. A Committee of the House of Commons was appointed, before whom Colonel By was summoned. The members treated him with scant courtesy, and no acknowledgment of his valuable services to the Empire was made. Colonel Durnford, R.E., an officer of unusually high character and great experience, was treated in a manner ill-befitting his rank and services. The only charge against him was that he had expended twenty-two thousand pounds in excess of the parliamentary grant, a most trivial offence, as he had been instructed "to proceed with all despatch consistent with economy." Colonel By was deeply hurt by such criticisms, and died a few years later from a disease directly attributable to the unjust treatment he had received.鈥擡dwards. Wrig. And what tongue, Madam, do you prefer? 鈥楾he Bishop of Calcutta, before leaving, kindly put into my hand a note for 100 rupees. I asked him to what purpose I should apply it; he replied to whatever purpose I liked; so I at once decided on our City Mission School, our Batala Plough, which has almost come to the end of its means, and must on no account be suffered to drop through. I was very glad of the seasonable supply. � The few following extracts lie between these two dates,鈥攖he going of Letitia to India, and the tidings of her death. 自拍国语对白在线视频|日本红怡院一本道|热热色 鈥業t is only fair that I should send you a long account of the wedding.[16] I thought that I should be the first of the party in[148] church, for I went early; but I was mistaken. Gradually a large family party gathered.... There was a good deal of how-d鈥檡e-doing and kissing and that kind of thing, before the word was heard, 鈥淭he bride is coming.鈥? I did not see why he should have the pain of another interview with his wife, so I got Mr. Ottery to manage the whole business. It turned out that we need not have harrowed ourselves so much about the agony of mind which Ellen would suffer on becoming an outcast again. Ernest saw Mrs. Richards, the neighbour who had called him down on the night when he had first discovered his wife鈥檚 drunkenness, and got from her some details of Ellen鈥檚 opinions upon the matter. She did not seem in the least conscience-stricken; she said: 鈥淭hank goodness, at last!鈥?And although aware that her marriage was not a valid one, evidently regarded this as a mere detail which it would not be worth anybody鈥檚 while to go into more particularly. As regards his breaking with her, she said it was a good job both for him and for her. In his eagerness to regenerate the Church of England (and through this the universe) by the means which Pryer had suggested to him, it occurred to him to try to familiarise himself with the habits and thoughts of the poor by going and living among them. I think he got this notion from Kingsley鈥檚 鈥淎lton Locke,鈥?which, High Churchman though he for the nonce was, he had devoured as he had devoured Stanley鈥檚 鈥淟ife of Arnold,鈥?Dickens鈥檚 novels, and whatever other literary garbage of the day was most likely to do him harm; at any rate he actually put his scheme into practice, and took lodgings in Ashpit Place, a small street in the neighbourhood of Drury Lane Theatre, in a house of which the landlady was the widow of a cabman. It was during the 鈥淢other Cross row,鈥?as it was long styled among the boys, that a remarkable phenomenon was witnessed at Roughborough: I mean that of the head boys under certain conditions doing errands for their juniors. The head boys had no bounds and could go to Mrs. Cross鈥檚 whenever they liked; they actually, therefore, made themselves go-betweens, and would get anything from either Mrs. Cross鈥檚 or Mrs. Jones鈥檚 for any boy, no matter how low in the school, between the hours of a quarter to nine and nine in the morning, and a quarter to six and six in the afternoon. By degrees, however, the boys grew bolder, and the shops, though not openly declared in bounds again, were tacitly allowed to be so. Chapter 39
