One of the former schoolboys, now a Native surgeon in India, Dr. I. U. Nasir, writes on the same subject:鈥? 鈥楤est break it to her judgematically, and with鈥攚ith鈥攁 composing draught. I鈥檒l tell her too to hold her tongue鈥攕he is mindful of what I say, always鈥攁nd answer only when she鈥檚 spoken to; and if I put her into a quiet dress, and keep my eye on her, she鈥檒l come through all right, or call me Jenny Say Quoy.鈥? The next letter鈥攍ike one or two on the same topic, already quoted鈥攊s of peculiar interest, because, some three years earlier, Miss Tucker had been a good deal exercised in spirit about the fact of Bishop French鈥檚 successor being a decided High Churchman, and had more than once written in strong and melancholy terms to her sister on the subject. The tone in which she now wrote, in 1892, is remarkable, as being by no means in accord with her former prejudices. But Charlotte Tucker, as I have had occasion to remark before, was not one of those small-natured people, who always stick fast to what they have said, because they have said it. She was ever ready for fresh light upon any matter. It appears to me that we see here in her some measure of that widening of spiritual outlook, which ought to become visible with advancing years and with a closer knowledge of the Spirit[486] of Christ. Probably she was not herself definitely conscious of any difference. � This wood is the private property of J. Vansittart Crowther, Esq. Trespassers will be prosecuted. 鈥楳arch 3.鈥擨 have another dear letter, to-day received, to thank you for. You need take no thought, love, about where I sit. We have benches in chapel; and as for my duli鈥攖o sit on its flat floor does not hurt me in the least. I dare say that dear E. never got into the way of it; but I take to it as a duck to the water. The only difficulty is the scrambling out of the box; but this does me no harm; it is wholesome exercise. As for a carriage, it would be[321] useless in Batala. I was regularly blocked in to-day, even in my tiny duli. The streets are so narrow and so crowded....鈥? 欧美成人在线视频_26UUU_亚洲综合香蕉在线视频 Yet it could have been no light matter,鈥攖his going forth alone, with only one young companion, into a very fastness of Muhammadanism and Heathenism. Miss Tucker herself was no longer young. Though marvellously strong and spirited for her time of life, she was now in her fifty-sixth year; hardly an age when, at the best, a woman is commonly willing to undertake great responsibilities in a new and untried direction. It was, however, true, as she said, that if she did not go, the Mission in Batala could not be at once started鈥攁s[242] a resident Mission. No two young women could have gone there alone. They must have waited for a married Missionary and his wife to head the effort. That plan will suit me, Nancy, she said, after a short pause. "I don't much care where I go, as long as I increase the distance between me and that horrible mad-house." TO MRS. J. BOSWELL. There can be no mistake about Charlotte Tucker鈥檚 enjoyment of fresh sights and scenes across the Atlantic, or about the fact that increasing years had at least not dimmed her appreciation of beauty. Most kind and warm hospitality was shown to her at Quebec, at Montreal, and at Toronto. She was met at Oakville Station by her younger nephew, Charles Tucker,鈥攖he latter in 鈥榓 state of joyous expectation鈥?which had kept him awake through three previous nights. Then followed a welcome from his wife, in their 鈥榩retty little home,鈥?elsewhere described by her as 鈥榓 Canadian settler鈥檚 little farmhouse.鈥? Mr. Baynham had a serious talk with the colonel after he left Isola, and it was agreed between them that she should be taken to Plymouth next day to see the great authority.
