John Caldigate - Chapter 56. The Boltons Are Very Firm John Caldigate - Chapter 56. The Boltons Are Very Firm

John Caldigate - Chapter 56. The Boltons Are Very Firm
Chapter LVI. The Boltons Are Very FirmWhile all this was going on, as the general opinion in favour of Caldigate was becoming stronger every day, when even Judge Bramber had begun to doubt, the feeling which had always prevailed at Puritan Grange was growing in intensity and converting itself from a conviction into a passion. That the wicked bigamist had falsely and fraudulently robbed her of her daughter was a religion to Mrs. Bolton;--and, as the matter had proceeded, the old banker had become ever more and more submissive to his wife's feelings. All the Cambridge Boltons were in accord on... Long Stories - Post by : dogears - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 1387

John Caldigate - Chapter 52. The Fortunes Of Bagwax
Chapter LII. The Fortunes of BagwaxAn altogether new idea had occurred to Bagwax as he sat in his office after his interview with Sir John Joram;--and it was an idea of such a nature that he thought that he saw his way quite plain to a complete manifestation of the innocence of Caldigate, to a certainty of a pardon, and to an immediate end of the whole complication. By a sudden glance at the evidence his eye had caught an object which in all his glances he had never before observed. Then at once he went to work, and finding that...

John Caldigate - Chapter 51. Dick Shand Goes To Cambridgeshire
Chapter LI. Dick Shand Goes To CambridgeshireThe news of Shand's return was soon common in Cambridge. The tidings, of course, were told to Mr. Caldigate, and were then made known by him to Hester. The old man, though he turned the matter much in his mind,--doubting whether the hopes thus raised would not add to Hester's sorrow should they not ultimately be realised,--decided that he could not keep her in the dark. Her belief could not be changed by any statement which Shand might make. Her faith was so strong that no evidence could shake it,--or confirm it. But there would,...

John Caldigate - Chapter 50. Again At Sir John's Chambers
Chapter L. Again at Sir John's ChambersAnd this was the man as to whom it had been acknowledged that his evidence, if it could be obtained, would be final. The return of Dick himself was to the Shands an affair so much more momentous than the release of John Caldigate from prison, that for some hours or so the latter subject was allowed to pass out of sight. The mother got him up-stairs and asked after his linen,--vain inquiry,--and arranged for his bed, turning all the little Rewbles into one small room. In the long run, grandmothers are more tender to... Long Stories - Post by : kurtg3 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 1507

John Caldigate - Chapter 49. All The Shands John Caldigate - Chapter 49. All The Shands

John Caldigate - Chapter 49. All The Shands
Chapter XLIX. All the ShandsThere had been something almost approaching to exultation at Babington when the tidings of Caldigate's alleged Australian wife were first heard there. As the anger had been great that Julia should be rejected, so had the family congratulation been almost triumphant when the danger which had been escaped was appreciated. There had been something of the same feeling at Pollington among the Shands--who had no doubt allowed themselves to think that Maria had been ill-treated by John Caldigate. He ought to have married Maria,--at least such was the opinion of the ladies of the family, who were... Long Stories - Post by : kurtg3 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 966

John Caldigate - Chapter 48. Sir John Joram's Chambers
Chapter XLVIII. Sir John Joram's ChambersMr. Curlydown's insinuations had been very cruel, but also very powerful. Bagwax, as he considered the matter that night in his bed, did conscientiously think that a discreet and humane Secretary of State would let the unfortunate husband out of prison on the evidence which he (Bagwax) had already collected. My readers will not perhaps agree with him. The finding of a jury and the sentence of a judge must be regarded seriously by Secretaries of State, and it is probable that Bagwax's theory would not make itself clear to that great functionary. A good many... Long Stories - Post by : kurtg3 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 3100

John Caldigate - Chapter 47. Curlydown And Bagwax
Chapter XLVII. Curlydown and BagwaxThere had been a sort of pledge given at the trial by Sir John Joram that the matter of the envelope should be further investigated. He had complained in his defence that the trial had been hurried on,--that time had not been allowed for full inquiries, seeing that the character of the deed by which his client had been put in jeopardy depended upon what had been done on the other side of the globe. 'This crime,' he had said, 'if it be a crime, was no doubt committed in the parish church of Utterden in the...

John Caldigate - Chapter 46. Burning Words
Chapter XLVI. Burning Words'No power at all; none whatever,' the banker said, when he was next compelled to carry on the conversation. This was immediately upon his return home from Cambridge, for his wife never allowed the subject to be forgotten or set aside. Every afternoon and every evening it was being discussed at all hours not devoted to prayers, and every morning it was renewed at the breakfast-table. 'That comes from Robert.' Mr. Bolton was not able to deny the assertion. 'What does he mean by "no power"?' 'We can't make her do it. The magistrates can't interfere.' 'Magistrates! Has...

John Caldigate - Chapter 42. The Second Day
Chapter XLII. The Second DayThe court had been very full on the first day of the trial, but on the following morning it was even more crowded, so that outsiders who had no friend connected with justice, had hardly a chance of hearing or seeing anything. Many of the circumstances of the case had long been known to the public, but matters of new and of peculiar interest had been elicited,--the distinct promise made by the woman to marry another man, so as to render her existing husband safe in his bigamy by committing bigamy herself,--the payment to these people by...

John Caldigate - Chapter 41. The First Day
Chapter XLI. The First DayThen came the morning on which Caldigate and Hester must part. Very little had been said about it, but a word or two had been absolutely necessary. The trial would probably take two days, and it would not be well that he should be brought back to Folking for the sad intervening night. And then,--should the verdict be given against him, the prison doors would be closed against her, his wife, more rigidly than against any other friend who might knock at them inquiring after his welfare. Her, at any rate, he would not be allowed to... Long Stories - Post by : kurtg3 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 2698

John Caldigate - Chapter 40. Waiting For The Trial
Chapter XL. Waiting For The TrialAs he returned to Cambridge Caldigate was not altogether contented with himself. He tried to persuade himself, in reference to the money which he had refunded, that in what he had done he had not at all been actuated by the charge made against him. Had there been no such accusation he would have felt himself bound to share the loss with these people as soon as he had learned the real circumstances. The money had been a burden to him. For the satisfaction of his own honour, of his own feelings, it had become necessary... Long Stories - Post by : kurtg3 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 1019

John Caldigate - Chapter 39. Restitution
Chapter XXXIX. RestitutionHe had still the whole night to think about it,--and throughout the whole night he was thinking about it. He had fixed a late hour in the afternoon for his appointment in London, so that he might have an hour or two in Cambridge before he started by the mid-day train. It was during his drive into the town that he at last made up his mind that he would not satisfy himself with discussing the matter with Mr. Seely, but that he would endeavour to explain it all to Robert Bolton. No doubt Robert Bolton was now his... Long Stories - Post by : kurtg3 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 1021

John Caldigate - Chapter 38. Bollum
Chapter XXXVIII. BollumThere was not much to enliven the house at Folking during these days. Caldigate would pass much of his time walking about the place, applying his mind as well as he could to the farm, and holding up his head among the tenants, with whom he was very popular. He had begun his reign over them with hands not only full but free. He had drained, and roofed, and put up gates, and repaired roads, and shown himself to be an active man, anxious to do good. And now in his trouble they were very true to him. But... Long Stories - Post by : kurtg3 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 2765

John Caldigate - Chapter 37. Again At Folking
Chapter XXXVII. Again at FolkingThus Hester prevailed, and was taken back to the house of the man who had married her. By this time very much had been said about the matter publicly. It had been impossible to keep the question,--whether John Caldigate's recent marriage had been true or fraudulent,--out of the newspapers; and now the attempt that had been made to keep them apart by force gave an additional interest to the subject. There was an opinion, very general among elderly educated people, that Hester ought to have allowed herself to be detained at the Grange. 'We do not mean...

Chapter XXXVI. The EscapeDuring the whole of that night Hester kept her position in the hall, holding her baby in her arms as long as the infant would sleep in that position, and then allowing the nurse to take it to its cradle up-stairs. And during the whole night also Mrs. Bolton remained with her daughter. Tea was brought to them, which each of them took, and after that neither spoke a word to the other till the morning. Before he went to bed, Mr. Bolton came down and made an effort for their joint comfort. 'Hester,' he said, 'why should...

Chapter XXXII. The Babington WeddingIt is your duty,--especially your duty,--to separate them.' This was said by Mr. Smirkie, the vicar of Plum-cum-Pippin, to Mr. Bromley, the rector of Utterden, and the words were spoken in the park at Babington where the two clergymen were taking a walk together. Mr. Smirkie's first wife had been a Miss Bromley, a sister of the clergyman at Utterden; and as Julia Babington was anxious to take to her bosom all her future husband's past belongings, Mr. Bromley had been invited to Babington. It might be that Aunt Polly was at this time well inclined to... Long Stories - Post by : Paul_-_PBT - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 860

John Caldigate - Chapter 31. Hester Is Lured Back
Chapter XXXI. Hester Is Lured BackOn the Monday morning, Mr. William Bolton, the barrister, who had much to his own inconvenience remained at Cambridge for the purpose of carrying out the scheme which he had proposed, went over to Folking in a fly. He had never been at the place before, and was personally less well acquainted with the family into which his sister had married than any other Bolton. Had everything been pleasant, nothing could have been more natural than such a visit; but as things were very far from pleasant Hester was much surprised when he was shown into...

John Caldigate - Chapter 30. The Conclave At Puritan Grange
Chapter XXX. The Conclave at Puritan GrangeJohn Caldigate was committed, and liberated on bail. This occurred in Cambridge on the Wednesday after the christening; and before the Saturday night following, all the Boltons were thoroughly convinced that this wretched man, who had taken from them their daughter and their sister, was a bigamist, and that poor Hester, though a mother, was not a wife. The evidence against him, already named, was very strong, but they had been put in possession of other, and as they thought more damning evidence than any to which he had alluded in telling his version of...

Chapter XXIX. 'Just by Telling Me that I Am'The thunderbolt had fallen now. Caldigate, when he left his wife that he might stroll about the place after the dusk had fallen, told himself again and again that the thunderbolt had certainly fallen now. There could be no longer a doubt but that this woman would claim him as her husband. A whole world of remorse and regrets oppressed his conscience and his heart. He looked back and remembered the wise counsels which had been given him on board the ship, when the captain and Mrs. Callender and poor Dick Shand had...

John Caldigate - Chapter 28. Tom Crinkett At Folking
Chapter XXVIII. Tom Crinkett at FolkingCaldigate thought that he had better take his companion where there would be the least chance of encountering many eyes. He went therefore through the garden into the farmyard and along the road leading back to the dike, and then he walked backwards and forwards between the ferry, over the Wash, and the termination of the private way by which they had come. The spot was not attractive, as far as rural prettiness was concerned. They had, on one hand or the other as they turned, the long, straight, deep dike which had been cut at...
