鈥極ur good pastor Sadiq and I had a long talk together to-day. We two almost, as it were, form a little party by ourselves; we are regular old-fashioned Panjabis, something like Saxons after the Norman Conquest. Sadiq highly approves of this school, because we don鈥檛 Anglicise the boys.... But the Anglicising tide runs too fast for Sadiq and me. We get spoilt by Batala, where there are no Europeans or Eurasians.... This is a grand transition time in India; and the Conservatism, which I drank in at old No. 3, remains in me like an instinct now. I would keep everything unchanged that is not wrong or foolish鈥攁nd there is such a fearful amount of things that are wrong and foolish, that one might think that to get rid of them would give all occupation sufficient. But I know that I am old-fashioned, and live too much in one groove to be able to judge correctly.鈥? 鈥楯ust Norah,鈥?he said. Miss C. O never mind. I鈥檓 neither sugar nor salt; only it鈥檚 a plaguy thing to have one鈥檚 dress so long, walking through such a bog. 下载北京赛车视频 鈥楩eb. 18.鈥擨 am thankful for improved accounts of you.... We have had rather an eventful week for Batala.... On Monday the dear Bishop came in. Herbert asked me to take luncheon with him on Tuesday. It was very nice; just the Bishop, Herbert, and four nice Native Christians. I was the only lady.... At half-past three we had a very interesting Confirmation Service in the Church, to which the Bishop drove me. He gave a very nice address, which Herbert translated beautifully into Panjabi, for the benefit of the simple peasants. On the following morning the Bishop gave in English such a practical heart-searching address to us workers! He looked so earnestly at us ladies, and was evidently anxious to do us real good. His was no idle display of eloquence; rather did his address resemble the admonition of a kind wise father. We did not see him after we left the chapel.... 鈥淰in, what鈥檚 up with the barefooting?鈥?they called to Stanford head coach Vin Lananna. 鈥淒idn鈥檛we send you enough shoes?鈥? 鈥楪ood-night, my Leila. May the Almighty make you, my dear Godchild, as unselfish, conscientious, and lowly as was the loved one by whose grave I am to stand to-morrow.鈥? 鈥淪how you what?鈥? The Tuckers were much in society, as may indeed have been already gathered. Mr. Tucker was a man greatly sought after, alike on account of his position and influence, and because of his personal attractiveness. Open house was kept; and the large circle of friends and acquaintances never failed to find a welcome. So many indeed would drop in and out, that three lunches in succession were occasionally known to take place at No. 3; and so frequent were the 鈥榩arties鈥?to which the family was invited, that sometimes they would appear at three different houses in the course of one evening. 鈥楶arty鈥?in those days was a wide term, embracing divers kinds of entertainment, from a simple musical gathering to a large ball.
