� Have you selected the cloth, sir? he asked. 鈥極r who would make the most of it if they had,鈥?Edith retorted sharply, adding in a low voice, 鈥楪aston, I quite hate you to-night: how disagreeable you can be.鈥? 亚泰时时彩登陆 Have you selected the cloth, sir? he asked. But it was something more than that, as the reader will now see. And your father, is he a bad sailor? I think you ought to know what kind of woman I am by this time, retorted his wife, tossing up her head. He knew what the answer would be. He thought her mind was wandering, and he knew there was only one image which could so agitate her. � Well, Venice will be your treasury; Venice will fill that busy brain with ideas. You shall be fed upon pictures old and new鈥攖he new living pictures in the narrow streets and canals; the old masters in the churches and palaces. You shall learn of Tintoret and Veronese. You shall paint as much as you like. You shall have no distractions. We shall be strangers there, can live as we choose. Summer is the time for Venice, Allegra. Benighted English people have an idea that Italy is a place to winter in, and they go and shiver in marble palaces, and watch the torrential rain beating against windows that were never meant to shut out bad weather. The Italians know that their land is a land of summer, and they know how to enjoy sunny days and balmy nights. You don't know how delicious life is on the Lido when the night is only a brief interval of starshine betwixt sunset and dawn. You don't know what a dream of delight it is to float along the lagoons and watch the lamp-lit city melt into the mists of evening, breathing faint echoes of music and song. A great many things of beauty have been turned to ugliness, Allegra, since printing and the steam engine were invented; but, thank God! Venice is not one of them. You will think of my plan, won't you, love? At the least, it is a thing to be considered. You have nothing to complain of, at least. You are well paid for the care of鈥攐f the person you mention. It was of essential importance for the development of Lincoln as a political leader, first for his State, and later in the contest that became national, that he should have possessed an understanding, which was denied to many of the anti-slavery leaders, of the actual nature, character, and purpose of the men against whom he was contending. It became of larger importance when Lincoln was directing from Washington the policy of the national administration that he should have a sympathetic knowledge of the problems of the men of the Border States who with the outbreak of the War had been placed in a position of exceptional difficulty, and that he should have secured and retained the confidence of these men. It seems probable that if the War President had been a man of Northern birth and Northern prejudices, if he had been one to whom the wider, the more patient and sympathetic view of these problems had been impossible or difficult, the Border States could not have been saved to the union. It is probable that the support given to the cause of the North by the sixty thousand or seventy thousand loyal recruits from Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Maryland, and Virginia, may even have proved the deciding factor in turning the tide of events. The nation's leader for the struggle seems to have been secured through a process of natural selection as had been the case a century earlier with Washington. We may recall that Washington died but ten years before Lincoln was born; and from the fact that each leader was at hand when the demand came for his service, and when without such service the nation might have been pressed to destruction, we may grasp the hope that in time of need the nation will always be provided with the leader who can meet the requirement. No one can be without sin in His sight. Do you suppose that I am sinless, or that I have ever believed myself sinless? I know how weak and poor a thing I am鈥攁 worm in the sight of Him who rules the universe. But if鈥攊f He cares for such as I, He knows that I am sorry for every sinful thought and every sinful act of my life. Have you selected the cloth, sir? he asked. 鈥楳aybe it would, but she might treat me to some more, and I鈥檝e no inclination for them. Stale fish, indeed!{31}鈥?
