About this product
- DescriptionI write this by desire of my brothers and sisters, that if any reports of our strange family history should come down to after generations the thing may be properly understood. The old times at Trevorsham seem to me so remote, that I can hardly believe that we are the same who were so happy then. Nay, Jaquetta laughs, and declares that it is t possible to be happier than we have been since, and Fulk would have me remember that all was t always smooth even in those days. Perhaps t-for him, at least, dear fellow, in those latter times; but when I think of the old home, the worst troubles that rise before me are those of the back-board and the stocks, French in the school-room, and Miss Simmonds' Lady Ursula, think of your position! And as to Jaquetta, she was born under a more benignant star. Nobody could have put a back-board on her any more than on a kitten. Our mother had died (oh! how happily for herself!) when Jaquetta was a baby, and Miss Simmonds most carefully ruled t only over us, but over Adela Brainerd, my father's ward, who was brought up with us because she had other relation in the world. Besides, my father wished her to marry one of my brothers. It would have done very well for either Torwood or Bertram, but unluckily, as it seemed, neither of them could take to the tion. She was a dear little thing, to be sure, and we were all very fond of her; but, as Bertram said, it would have been like marrying Jaquetta, and Torwood had other views, to which my father would t then listen.
