No Water at all, but a little from Roses; 鈥楽uch a merry breakfast we had this morning! Our three dear ladies, Margaret, Emily, and Florrie, arrived at about 9 A.M. after nine hours of raft,鈥攙ery tiring, for it involved much walking, and it was raining away,鈥攁nd twelve of dak-gari. Margaret looked young and lovely; Florrie much improved.... She is delighted with the Batala scheme; but Margaret tells me that it cannot be carried out till December at earliest, and I have my doubts about its being carried out at all. At any rate, the difficulties will not have come from me. I am quite willing to go; but of course a new station would involve the Committee in expenses, and it is not easy to procure a suitable house, etc., so it is likely enough that Sadiq鈥檚 plan will be disapproved of in high quarters. I quietly wait to see what direction is taken by 鈥渢he fiery, cloudy pillar.鈥?... Things could not go on thus much longer. Miss Tucker had made a brave fight,鈥攖oo brave for her own good!鈥攂ut illness was now fast gaining the upper hand. She did not again attempt city visiting,鈥攁 sure sign of her condition; and much time that day was spent in a half-doze. Towards night she became light-headed, and was so weak that they had to carry her to bed. Miss Hoernle decided to sleep at the palace, so as to be within easy call if needed; but in the early morning she found her patient up, writing a letter, and of course avowing herself 鈥榖etter.鈥?The improvement, if it existed, was very brief. Fever again set in, with weakness and delirium; and Dr. H. M. Clark was sent for. On Tuesday Mr. Clark came too, and that evening he sent for Miss Wauton to go over from Amritsar on Wednesday morning. Mr. Rowland Bateman also was speedily on the spot. Somewhat later in the week a telegram summoned A. L. O. E.鈥檚 nephew and niece, Major Louis Tucker and Mrs. Tucker. IF Theobald and Christina had not been too well pleased when Miss Pontifex first took Ernest in hand, they were still less so when the connection between the two was interrupted so prematurely. They said they had made sure from what their sister had said that she was going to make Ernest her heir. I do not think she had given them so much as a hint to this effect. Theobald indeed gave Ernest to understand that she had done so in a letter which will be given shortly, but if Theobald wanted to make himself disagreeable, a trifle light as air would forthwith assume in his imagination whatever form was most convenient to him. I do not think they had even made up their minds what Alethea was to do with her money before they knew of her being at the point of death, and as I have said already, if they had thought it likely that Ernest would be made heir over their own heads without their having at any rate a life interest in the bequest, they would have soon thrown obstacles in the way of further intimacy between aunt and nephew. ???And could not but by God: 鈥淚t can鈥檛 come in our time,鈥?said Martin. 鈥淎s regards the laity,鈥?said Pryer, 鈥渘othing; not until we have a discipline which we can enforce with pains and penalties.
