Mention of this event was made at the time in the Journal Letter of Viscountess Canning, worth quoting in addition to the above. Caps were a trouble, and she was most grateful to any one who made her a present of a cap. She could not make nice ones for herself, and she disliked the style of bought caps. 乐彩双色球原创 Mention of this event was made at the time in the Journal Letter of Viscountess Canning, worth quoting in addition to the above.

Missionary work has been mainly carried on in the Panjab by the Church Missionary Society; just as, in many parts of Bengal, Missionary work has been mainly carried on by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. Where the one great Church Society has obtained a footing, the other great Church Society does not interfere in either case, but goes elsewhere in the Mission field. It is greatly to be wished that this spirit of courtesy were more widely seen in the working of Missions generally among the heathen. During late years the ladies of the Church Zenana Society have come in as an additional help to the Societies above-named,鈥攁s true 鈥榟andmaids,鈥?alike in the Panjab and in other parts of India. 鈥楯an. 6.鈥擨 was rather glad when yesterday鈥檚 grand affair was over. As we had two dulis for three ladies, we had to manage by Florrie always going first,鈥攊.e. she proceeded to School 2, while we lingered at No. 1鈥攖o School 3, while we stopped at 2, etc. I had to try to amuse and show off the children to Mrs. T. during the waiting time, which sometimes seemed rather long, especially where the girls would not sing. In vain I started even a bhajan in one of the schools. When I had been nearly seven years in the Secretary鈥檚 office of the Post Office, always hating my position there, and yet always fearing that I should be dismissed from it, there came a way of escape. There had latterly been created in the service a new body of officers called surveyors鈥?clerks. There were at that time seven surveyors in England, two in Scotland and three in Ireland. To each of these officers a clerk had been lately attached, whose duty it was to travel about the country under the surveyor鈥檚 orders. There had been much doubt among the young men in the office whether they should or should not apply for these places. The emoluments were good and the work alluring; but there was at first supposed to be something derogatory in the position. There was a rumour that the first surveyor who got a clerk sent the clerk out to fetch his beer, and that another had called upon his clerk to send the linen to the wash. There was, however, a conviction that nothing could be worse than the berth of a surveyor鈥檚 clerk in Ireland. The clerks were all appointed, however. To me it had not occurred to ask for anything, nor would anything have been given me. But after a while there came a report from the far west of Ireland that the man sent there was absurdly incapable. It was probably thought then that none but a man absurdly incapable would go on such a mission to the west of Ireland. When the report reached the London office I was the first to read it. I was at that time in dire trouble, having debts on my head and quarrels with our Secretary-Colonel, and a full conviction that my life was taking me downwards to the lowest pits. So I went to the Colonel boldly, and volunteered for Ireland if he would send me. He was glad to be so rid of me, and I went. This happened in August, 1841, when I was twenty-six years old. My salary in Ireland was to be but 锟?00 a year; but I was to receive fifteen shillings a day for every day that I was away from home, and sixpence for every mile that I travelled. The same allowances were made in England; but at that time travelling in Ireland was done at half the English prices. My income in Ireland, after paying my expenses, became at once 锟?00. This was the first good fortune of my life. 鈥楽ept. 14, 1876.鈥擨 have been delaying writing till I could give you news from Batala,鈥攖hat place towards which Missionary eyes longingly turn, as those of the Germans did towards Strasburg.

While the shopkeeper and I were busy setting the over-under, I saw Arnulfo strolling past.
