You won't keep us waiting in the cloak-room, will you, dear Mrs. Disney? they pleaded coaxingly. Wisely and generously Mr. and Mrs. Tucker yielded. If it had become a matter of conscience with her, she might remain at home. Although they did not view the question in precisely the same light, they would not make their conscience the rule for her actions, but would leave her free to be guided by the dictates of her own. She made her Wish bear Fortune Company. These were the earliest impressions of Gibraltar prevailing among the officers of the Duke鈥檚 Own. But our friends eventually changed their tone. By their first contemptuous abstention, they found, in the first place, that they lost all the fun that was going, and, next, that, although the sport was second-rate, they could not excel in it even when they tried. One or two of the Duke鈥檚 Own, who were said to be in all the secrets of the Dawson and John Scott stables, went in for some of the plates and cups at the autumn meeting, and signally failed in everything. Later on, when the hunting season really began, and they turned out in a body in red coats and the most undeniable tops, to cut everybody down, they were chagrined to find that it was much more difficult to follow than they supposed. Red coats and mahogany tops were nowhere at the end of the first burst. One or two men were completely thrown out; a few tried the breakneck country between 鈥榯he Rivers鈥?only to crane at length and turn back from the precipices and steep inclines. After that first day the Duke鈥檚 Own spoke more respectfully of the Calpe Hunt. By and bye they became less critical in other respects, and at length, when they had been some six months on the Rock, entered as fully into its amusements, and enjoyed them as thoroughly as the oldest stagers in the place.

So you have no defence to make, then?" I should like that very much. Our stay here has been short, but it has been long enough, said Nicholas. "Next time we will put less confidence in fair words and a smooth tongue." 鈥業 think, love, that these little particulars will amuse you. I write playfully, but the real undermost feeling in my heart is that of humble gratitude to Him from Whom all blessings flow,鈥攖he love of true and God-fearing hearts being one of the most precious of those blessings.鈥?
