鈥楾his is my sweet Letitia鈥檚 birthday; she is just twenty.... My Letitia is going to pay Louis a visit at Moultan.鈥? When Miss Tucker was first starting for India, her brother, Mr. Henry Carre Tucker, had written to her upon the subject of literature for that land; and a short quotation from his letter may be appropriately given here. 鈥楾he great thing at present,鈥?he wrote, 鈥榠s to disseminate widely Christian Vernacular Literature in all the languages, and suitable to the requirements of all classes, men, women, and children; rich and poor; educated and ignorant. Government is rapidly teaching most of the boys to read. We Christians must provide them with a wholesome literature. Few women and girls can be reached personally, but books penetrate everywhere, and may do an untold amount of secret silent good. The preparation and distribution of such Literature ought to be your great object. You might organise Female Colporteurs for the Zenanas and womenkind.鈥?This last suggestion Miss Tucker does not seem ever to have taken up, or attempted to carry out. 鈥極f all the India鈥檚 sons, especially those with whom she had to deal at Batala, it was my privilege to be called her 鈥渟on.鈥?She was an 鈥淎unt鈥?to a good many Missionaries, but only did she allow me to call her 鈥淢other鈥? and she did love me as a true mother.... Miss Krapf in her turn had had a serious breakdown; and she did not return to Batala. In her place, towards the end of the year, came Miss Minnie Dixie, who was to be Miss Tucker鈥檚 constant companion and fellow-inmate of the Mission Bungalow for seven years or more. By the time Miss Dixie arrived, as 鈥楽onnenschein鈥?was made only to take in two ladies, and Miss Hoernle was still there, Miss Tucker had doubtless moved into her own little annexe,鈥攖he new west wing of the Bungalow, which she had prettily named 鈥楽unset!鈥? ??????It meditates the Sky; 一道本不卡免费高清在线,色www亚洲免费,在线高清理伦片,国产大香蕉视频播放 鈥楽o you got past the gate, did you?

Gave to each two little burdens to bear. 鈥榊our sweet Mother will wonder at not receiving the little book which I promised to send her; but our bookseller, from whom I ordered the copy, has been unable to get it yet. I will tell you something that may cause delay. Of course I looked with some interest at the illustrations which my Publisher sent me; but I was not a little surprised in the last one to find one whom I considered to be a man represented as a bear! He was bearish in character certainly, but still鈥攃ertainly not a bear in shape. The leading spirit and showman of the regiment at this particular epoch was the junior major Cavendish-Diggle. Diggle was, in his way, a man of parts, young, pushing, ambitious, passably rich. No one knew exactly where he came from, or who were his belongings or his people. One of his patronymics was decidedly patrician, the other as unmistakeably commonplace. He might be a cousin of the Duke of Devonshire; and again he might not. When anyone asked him the question鈥攁nd it was one he liked to have put to him鈥攈e smiled pleasantly, and said that the Cavendishes were all related, as everybody knew. But he was not so well pleased when people, envious or cynical, or both, remarked casually that Diggle was the name of the great grocers in Cheapside. There was no connection on that side of course, but the allusion was far from agreeable to him, as a shrewd observer might have noticed from his face and his avowed hostility to anyone who dared to make the remark.
