Miss Mackenzie - Chapter 28. Showing How The Lion Was Stung By The Wasp
CHAPTER XXVIII. Showing How the Lion Was Stung by the WaspIt may be remembered that Mr Maguire, when he first made public that pretty story of the Lion and the Lamb, declared that he would give the lion no peace till that beast had disgorged his prey, and that he had pledged himself to continue the fight till he should have succeeded in bringing the lamb back to the pleasant pastures of Littlebath. But Mr Maguire found some difficulty in carrying out his pledge. He was willing enough to fight, but the weapons with which to do battle were wanting to...

Miss Mackenzie - Chapter 27. The Negro Soldiers' Orphan Bazaar
CHAPTER XXVII. The Negro Soldiers' Orphan BazaarIn the spring days of the early May there came up in London that year a great bazaar,--a great charity bazaar on behalf of the orphan children of negro soldiers who had fallen in the American war. Tidings had come to this country that all slaves taken in the revolted States had been made free by the Northern invaders, and that these free men had been called upon to show their immediate gratitude by becoming soldiers in the Northern ranks. As soldiers they were killed in battle, or died, and as dead men they left... Long Stories - Post by : sidneiye - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 1347

Miss Mackenzie - Chapter 26. Mrs Mackenzie Of Cavendish Square
CHAPTER XXVI. Mrs Mackenzie of Cavendish Square"My dear," said the beautifully-dressed lady, "you don't know me, I think;" and the beautifully-dressed lady came up to Miss Mackenzie very cordially, took her by the hand, smiled upon her, and seemed to be a very good-natured person indeed. Margaret told the lady that she did not know her, and at that moment was altogether at a loss to guess who the lady might be. The lady might be forty years of age, but was still handsome, and carried with her that easy, self-assured, well balanced manner, which, if it be not overdone, goes...

Miss Mackenzie - Chapter 22. Still At The Cedars
CHAPTER XXII. Still at the CedarsMargaret, when she had reached her own room, and seated herself so that she could consider all that had occurred in quietness, immediately knew her own difficulty. Of course Lady Ball would give her account of what had occurred to her son, and of course John would be angry when he learned that there had been any purpose of marriage between her and Mr Maguire. She herself took a different view of the matter now than that which had hitherto presented itself. She had not thought much of Mr Maguire or his proposal. It had been...

Miss Mackenzie - Chapter 21. Mr Maguire Goes To London On Business
CHAPTER XXI. Mr Maguire Goes to London on BusinessMr Maguire made up his mind to go to London, to look after his lady-love, but when he found himself there he did not quite know what to do. It is often the case with us that we make up our minds for great action,--that in some special crisis of our lives we resolve that something must be done, and that we make an energetic start; but we find very soon that we do not know how to go on doing anything. It was so with Mr Maguire. When he had secured a... Long Stories - Post by : sidneiye - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 3415

CHAPTER XX. Showing How the Third Lover Behaved"What has that man been here for?" Those were the first words which Mr Ball spoke to his cousin after shutting the hall-door behind Mr Rubb's back. When the door was closed he turned round and saw Margaret as she was coming out of the dining-room, and in a voice that sounded to her as though he were angry, asked her the above question. "He came to see me, John," said Miss Mackenzie, going back into the dining-room. "He was my brother's partner." "He said he came upon business; what business could he have?"...

CHAPTER XIX. Showing How Two of Miss Mackenzie's Lovers BehavedMr Ball, on his return home to the Cedars, had given no definite answer to his mother's inquiries as to the day's work in London, and had found it difficult to make any reply to her that would for the moment suffice. She was not a woman easily satisfied with evasive answers; but, nevertheless, he told her nothing of what had occurred, and left her simply in a bad humour. This conversation had taken place before dinner, but after dinner she asked him another question. "John, you might as well tell me...

CHAPTER XVIII. TribulationWhen they were once more out in the square, side by side, Miss Mackenzie took hold of her cousin's arm and walked on for a few steps in silence, in the direction of Great Queen Street--that is to say, away from the city, towards which she knew her cousin would go in pursuit of his own business. And indeed the hour was now close at hand in which he should be sitting as a director at the Shadrach Fire Assurance Office. If not at the Shadrach by two, or, with all possible allowance for the shortcoming of a generally... Long Stories - Post by : sidneiye - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 3488

CHAPTER XVII. Mr Slow's ChambersShe came down late to breakfast on the following morning, not being present at prayers, and when she came down she wore a bonnet. "I got myself ready, John, for fear I should keep you waiting." Her aunt spoke to her somewhat more graciously than on the preceding evening, and accepted her apology for being late. Just as she was about to start Lady Ball took her apart and spoke one word to her. "No one can tell you better what you ought to do than your cousin John; but pray remember that he is far too...

CHAPTER XVI. Lady Ball's GrievanceMiss Mackenzie, before she left Gower Street, was forced to make some arrangements as to her affairs at Littlebath, and these were ultimately settled in a manner that was not altogether palatable to her. Mr Rubb was again sent down, having Susanna in his charge, and he was empowered to settle with Miss Mackenzie's landlady and give up the lodgings. There was much that was disagreeable in this. Miss Mackenzie having just rejected Mr Rubb's suit, did not feel quite comfortable in giving him a commission to see all her stockings and petticoats packed up and brought...

CHAPTER XII. Mrs Stumfold InterferesOn the morning following Miss Todd's tea-party, Mr Rubb called on Miss Mackenzie and bade her adieu. He was, he said, going up to London at once, having received a letter which made his presence there imperative. Miss Mackenzie could, of course, do no more than simply say good-bye to him. But when she had said so he did not even then go at once. He was standing with his hat in hand, and had bade her farewell; but still he did not go. He had something to say, and she stood there trembling, half fearing what... Long Stories - Post by : sidneiye - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 2525

Miss Mackenzie - Chapter 11. Miss Todd Entertains Some Friends At Tea
CHAPTER XI. Miss Todd Entertains Some Friends at TeaI believe that a desire to get married is the natural state of a woman at the age of--say from twenty-five to thirty-five, and I think also that it is good for the world in general that it should be so. I am now speaking, not of the female population at large, but of women whose position in the world does not subject them to the necessity of earning their bread by the labour of their hands. There is, I know, a feeling abroad among women that this desire is one of which... Long Stories - Post by : sidneiye - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 2157

CHAPTER X. Plenary AbsolutionsThe letter which Miss Mackenzie received was from old Mr Slow, her lawyer; and it was a very unpleasant letter. It was so unpleasant that it made her ears tingle when she read it and remembered that the person to whom special allusion was made was one whom she had taught herself to regard as her friend. Mr Slow's letter was as follows: 7 Little St Dunstan Court, April, 186--. DEAR MADAM, I think it proper to write to you specially, about the loan made...

CHAPTER IX. Miss Mackenzie's PhilosophyMiss Mackenzie remained quiet in her room for two days after her return before she went out to see anybody. These last Christmas weeks had certainly been the most eventful period of her life, and there was very much of which it was necessary that she should think. She had, she thought, made up her mind to refuse her cousin's offer; but the deed was not yet done. She had to think of the mode in which she must do it; and she could not but remember, also, that she might still change her mind in that...

CHAPTER VIII. Mrs Tom Mackenzie's Dinner PartyMrs Tom was ever so gracious on the arrival of her sister-in-law, but even in her graciousness there was something which seemed to Margaret to tell of her dislike. Near relatives, when they are on good terms with each other, are not gracious. Now, Mrs Tom, though she was ever so gracious, was by no means cordial. Susanna, however, was delighted to see her aunt, and Margaret, when she felt the girl's arms round her neck, declared to herself that that should suffice for her,--that should be her love, and it should be enough.

CHAPTER VII. Miss Mackenzie Leaves the CedarsThere was something so serious in her cousin's request to her, and so much of gravity in his mode of making it, that Miss Mackenzie could not but think of it throughout the day. On what subject did he wish to speak to her in so solemn and special a manner? An idea of the possibility of an offer no doubt crossed her mind and fluttered her, but it did not do more than this; it did not remain fixed with her, or induce her to resolve what answer she would give if such offer...

CHAPTER VI. Miss Mackenzie Goes to the CedarsAbout the middle of December Mrs Mackenzie, of Gower Street, received a letter from her sister-in-law at Littlebath, in which it was proposed that Susanna should pass the Christmas holidays with her father and mother. "I myself," said the letter, "am going for three weeks to the Cedars. Lady Ball has written to me, and as she seems to wish it, I shall go. It is always well, I think, to drop family dissensions." The letter said a great deal more, for Margaret Mackenzie, not having much business on hand, was fond of writing...

CHAPTER II. Miss Mackenzie Goes to LittlebathI fear that Miss Mackenzie, when she betook herself to Littlebath, had before her mind's eye no sufficiently settled plan of life. She wished to live pleasantly, and perhaps fashionably; but she also desired to live respectably, and with a due regard to religion. How she was to set about doing this at Littlebath, I am afraid she did not quite know. She told herself over and over again that wealth entailed duties as well as privileges; but she had no clear idea what were the duties so entailed, or what were the privileges. How...

CHAPTER I. The Mackenzie FamilyI fear I must trouble my reader with some few details as to the early life of Miss Mackenzie,--details which will be dull in the telling, but which shall be as short as I can make them. Her father, who had in early life come from Scotland to London, had spent all his days in the service of his country. He became a clerk in Somerset House at the age of sixteen, and was a clerk in Somerset House when he died at the age of sixty. Of him no more shall be said than that his...

But he knew when making it that that threat was an empty bravado. The will was as valid as care and law could make it, and the ex-solicitor-general knew very well that it was valid. He knew, moreover, that the assistance of no ordinary policeman would suffice to enable him to obtain possession of his wife's person; and he knew also that if he had such possession, it...
