It has already appeared that both Joey and Charlotte are Joey has a family, but he and Ernest very rarely have any intercourse. Of course, Ernest took nothing under his father鈥檚 will; this had long been understood, so that the other two are both well provided for. On March 26 comes a short letter to Mrs. Hamilton, jubilant at the thought of a visit from her friend, Mr. Francis Baring:鈥? Might rise; companion, not unworthy thee! 鈥淲ithout doubt.鈥? 鈥業 suspect that there is an impression amongst some Europeans, as well as Natives, that Auntie is very old. I have three times heard the latter say that I am a hundred; and I notice that in the last Female Evangelist I am pronounced 鈥渁dvanced in years.鈥?To my mind that means at least seventy!!! I was guessed to-day as eighty in a Zenana. But I must be thought a pretty active old dame, to get up such steep stairs as I do.鈥? In the mornings she was generally better, as long that is to say as Ernest remained at home; but he had to go out buying, and on his return would generally find that she had had another attack as soon as he had left the house. At times she would laugh and cry for half an hour together, at others she would lie in a semi-comatose state upon state upon the bed, and when he came back he would find that the shop had been neglected and all the work of the household left undone. Still he took it for granted that this was all part of the usual course when women were going to become mothers, and when Ellen鈥檚 share of the work settled down more and more upon his own shoulders he did it all and drudged away without a murmur.

For myself I am glad. So is our tender-hearted Martin. So are you. The calf has before him a crowded week of frisky life. Send word to P猫re Didier that we are delighted to hear of his decision and ask him to crown the calf with flowers and send him along to-day for afternoon tea.鈥? 鈥極h, I must tell you what a boon your Beaconsfield handkerchief is! It gave much amusement at Batala, both to Europeans and Natives; it is giving much here at Amritsar. I am engaged to dine with the Clarks this evening; so I dare say that the good Bishop, Archdeacon, and all will have a laugh over my puzzle. On Monday I am to go to Lahore, and sleep a night at Government House. I mean to take my handkerchief with me.... 鈥淚 wish you had told me something of this before,鈥?said Martin, 鈥渂ecause I鈥檝e been feeling myself the happiest man. . . .鈥?
