Miss Tucker might well have said 鈥榲ery鈥?instead of 鈥榓lmost鈥?sad. Certain words in a letter of Mrs. Baring鈥檚 to Mrs. Hamilton, soon after, are something of an echo to the above:鈥? There is no necessity for any one to believe this, on the part of either husband or wife, to have been more than a natural dream鈥攁 reflex of the state of mind and thought previously. At the same time, it is undoubtedly possible that help or comfort, whichever was required, might be sent through the medium of a dream. Several remarkable instances of dreams are mentioned from time to time by Miss Tucker in her letters,鈥攐ccasionally vivid enough to decide a Muhammadan on the great step of becoming a Christian. There is many a simple and natural means by and through which God speaks to the heart; and dreams may sometimes be one of those means,鈥攅specially in 鈥楨arly Church days.鈥? There was a certain Widow-Gentlewoman, who had but one only Son, who should have been the Staff of her Age. This Son she had educated to the Law, and placed him in handsome Chambers in the Temple. But the young Gentleman, instead of studying the Laws of his Country, practis'd the Mode of the Times, and kept the Wife of an unhappy Citizen, made so partly by her Vanity and Coquettry, 'till he was forced to seek his Fortune in the Plantations, whilst she found hers in the wicked Embraces of this young Gentleman; who hired a very handsome House for her, furnished it genteely, and when he pleas'd, there pass'd his Time, making her his Study, Practice and Diversion. In this guilty Correspondence, they had Children; in particular one, who grew a great Girl, and was put to a Boarding-School, amongst young Gentlewomen of Vertuous Descent. One more short sentence from the same source is worthy of particular attention: 鈥榃hen ill, Miss Tucker did not like to inform her friends of it, lest her friends should leave their work and come to nurse her. She often expressed a wish that there were Mission Nurses, who could attend to the sick Missionaries. Without these, when one got ill, others were taken from their work to nurse her.鈥? 鈥楴ov. 15, 1865. 2018最新东京热一本道在线_亚州无码无毛视频_久久碰在线  ???When the Nymphs had leave to play, 鈥楩eb. 12, 1892. 鈥極f course, there were many people at the site of our church. We had four surpliced clergymen, my three nephews, Francis, Mr. Wade, and Mr. Weitbrecht, and Nobin Chanda. ... The religious Service was very nice; of course, in Urdu. Then Sir Charles spread mortar over the place on which the marble block was to descend, in what was considered a very workmanlike manner. We sang 鈥淭he Church鈥檚 One Foundation鈥?in Urdu; Mr. Weitbrecht鈥檚 and Mr. Wade鈥檚 fine voices making it sound so well. Sir Charles made such a nice religious speech; it was almost like a little Missionary address. He had had, he said, a very private conversation for an hour with a Native of distinction, who was in concern about his soul; and it ended by the Native saying that he had sometimes prayed to the Lord Jesus, but would now pray to Him every day. Thank God for a Lieutenant-Governor who thus shows his Christian colours!
