The Bertrams - Volume 2 - Chapter 1. The New Member For The Battersea Hamlets
VOLUME II CHAPTER I. THE NEW MEMBER FOR THE BATTERSEA HAMLETSI must now ask my readers to pass over two years with me. It is a terrible gap in a story; but in these days the unities are not much considered, and a hiatus which would formerly have been regarded as a fault utterly fatal is now no more than a slight impropriety. But something must be told of the occurrences of these two years. In the first place, no marriage had taken place--that is, among our personages; nor had their ranks been thinned by any death. In our retrospective view... Long Stories - Post by : Maxprofits - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 2670

The Bertrams - Volume 1 - Chapter 15. Mr. Harcourt's Visit To Littlebath
VOLUME I CHAPTER XV. MR. HARCOURT'S VISIT TO LITTLEBATHDuring the whole of the winter and spring, George's attention to his work had been unremitting. Mr. Die was always prophesying still greater things, and still greater. Once a fortnight, on every other Saturday, Bertram had gone down to Littlebath, but he had always returned to London by the first train on Monday morning, and was always up to his elbows in law, even on that morning, before eleven. During the whole of this time, he had not once seen his uncle, although Miss Baker had softly endeavoured to talk him into visiting...

VOLUME I CHAPTER XIV. WAYS AND MEANSOn the following day Bertram returned to town. Now that he was a successful lover, and about to take upon himself at some future time the responsible duties of a married man, he became very energetic in the chambers of Mr. Die. He could hardly spare a day during the winter for running down to Littlebath, and whenever he did do so, he took Coke upon Lyttleton down with him. Nor did he work in vain. He never had worked in vain. Facility of acquiring the special knowledge which he sought had ever been one...

VOLUME I CHAPTER XIII. LITTLEBATHI abhor a mystery. I would fain, were it possible, have my tale run through from its little prologue to the customary marriage in its last chapter, with all the smoothness incidental to ordinary life. I have no ambition to surprise my reader. Castles with unknown passages are not compatible with my homely muse. I would as lief have to do with a giant in my book--a real giant, such as Goliath--as with a murdering monk with a scowling eye. The age for such delights is, I think, gone. We may say historically of Mrs. Radcliffe's time... Long Stories - Post by : Maxprofits - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 2040

The Bertrams - Volume 1 - Chapter 12. George Bertram Decides In Favour Of The Bar
CHAPTER XII. GEORGE BERTRAM DECIDES IN FAVOUR OF THE BARGeorge Bertram did not return directly to England. Since he had been in Turkey, he had made arrangement by letter with his friend Harcourt to meet him in the Tyrol, and to travel home with him through Switzerland. It was about the middle of June when he left Constantinople, and Harcourt was to be at Innspruck on the 5th August. George might therefore well have remained a week or two longer with his father had either of them so wished; but neither of them did wish it. The living at Constantinople was...

VALE VALETEMiss Baker was a little querulous at being left so long sitting with Miss Todd at the corner of the garden wall; but Miss Todd was never querulous: she was one of those good-humoured persons who never complain, and find some antidote to every ill in life, even in the ill itself. True, she had been kept a couple of hours and more sitting on a stone by the brook Cedron; but then she had acquired the privilege of telling how Mr. George Bertram and Miss Caroline Waddington had passed those hours, _tete-a-tete together, on the...

VOLUME I CHAPTER X. THE EFFECTS OF MISS TODD'S PICNICSir Lionel did not participate violently either in his son's disgust at the falsehood of that holy sepulchre church, nor in his enthusiasm as to the Mount of Olives. In the former, he walked about as he had done in many other foreign churches, looked a little to the right and a little to the left, observed that the roof seemed to be rather out of order, declined entering the sanctum sanctorum, and then asked whether there was anything more to be seen. He did not care, he said, about going upstairs... Long Stories - Post by : Maxprofits - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 2241

VOLUME I CHAPTER VI. JERUSALEMBut there was no quarrel between George Bertram uncle and George Bertram nephew: though in such conversations as they had about business they were not over civil to each other, still they went on together as good friends, at any rate as they ever had been. Indeed, after the last scene which has been reported, the old man became more courteous to his nephew, and before the three months were over was almost cordial. There was that about George the younger which made the old uncle respect him, despite himself. The London merchant had a thorough contempt...

VOLUME I CHAPTER V. THE CHOICE OF A PROFESSIONWe must now go back to our other hero, or, rather, to another of our heroes. Arthur Wilkinson is our melancholy love-lorn tenor, George Bertram our eager, excitable barytone, and Mr. Harcourt--Henry Harcourt--our bass, wide awake to the world's good things, impervious to sentimentality, and not over-scrupulous--as is always the case with your true deep-mouthed opera bass. Our present business is with the excitable barytone, whom we left some year and a half ago in not a very clear state of mind as to the walk in life which would be best suited...

VOLUME I CHAPTER IV. OUR PRIMA DONNAWhen Arthur first explained to his mother the terms on which the living had been given to him, she refused to receive the income. No such promise with reference to money matters between mother and son could be binding. Were they not, moreover, one and the same household? Would it not be in the end the same if Arthur should keep the money himself? If it were paid to her, she should only pay it back again; and so on. But the vicar declared that he would adhere strictly to his promised engagement; and the... Long Stories - Post by : dbunis - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 1238

VOLUME I CHAPTER III. THE NEW VICARPoor Arthur Wilkinson was in a very unhappy frame of mind when he left the party at Parker's, and, indeed, as he went to bed that night he was in a state not to be envied; but, nevertheless, when the end of the week came, he was able to enter the parsonage with a cheerful step, and to receive his mother's embrace with a smiling face. God is good to us, and heals those wounds with a rapidity which seems to us impossible when we look forward, but which is regarded with very insufficient wonder...

How should he write it? The task might have been comparatively light to him but for that dreadful debt. Bertram in the meantime tossed over the pages of his book, looking every now and then at his watch; and then turning sharply round, he exclaimed, "Well!" "I wish you'd leave me," said Wilkinson; "I'd rather be alone." "May I be doomed to live and die a don...

VOLUME I CHAPTER I. VAE VICTIS!This is undoubtedly the age of humanity--as far, at least, as England is concerned. A man who beats his wife is shocking to us, and a colonel who cannot manage his soldiers without having them beaten is nearly equally so. We are not very fond of hanging; and some of us go so far as to recoil under any circumstances from taking the blood of life. We perform our operations under chloroform; and it has even been suggested that those schoolmasters who insist on adhering in some sort to the doctrines of Solomon should perform their...

CHAPTER XXIV. CONCLUSION.The day came at last on which Mary's visit to Little Alresford was to commence. Two days later John Gordon was to arrive at the Parsonage, and Mary's period of being "spooned" was to be commenced,--according to Mr Blake's phraseology. "No, my dear; I don't think I need go with you," said Mr Whittlestaff, when the very day was there. "Why not come and call?" "I don't much care about calling," said Mr Whittlestaff. This was exactly the state of mind to which Mary did not wish to see her friend reduced,--that of feeling it to be necessary to...

CHAPTER XX. MR WHITTLESTAFF TAKES HIS JOURNEYMr Whittlestaff did at last get into the train and have himself carried up to London. And he ate his sandwiches and drank his sherry with an air of supreme satisfaction,--as though he had carried his point. And so he had. He had made up his mind on a certain matter; and, with the object of doing a certain piece of work, he had escaped from the two dominant women of his household, who had done their best to intercept him. So far his triumph was complete. But as he sat silent in the corner... Long Stories - Post by : Infobiz - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 2053

"I don't think I would." "Why should you interfere?" "I know I ought not to interfere." "I don't think you ought. Especially as I have taken the trouble to conceal what I am going about." "I can guess," said Mary. "You ought not to guess in such a matter. You ought not to have it on your mind at all. I told you that I would not tell you. I...

CHAPTER XVIII. MR AND MRS TOOKEYOn the day arranged, early on the morning after the dinner at Little Alresford Park, John Gordon went up to London. He had not been much moved by the intimation made to him by Mr Whittlestaff that some letter should be written to him at his London address. He had made his appeal to Mr Whittlestaff, and had received no answer whatever. And he had, after a fashion, made his appeal also to the girl. He felt sure that his plea must reach her. His very presence then in this house had been an appeal to... Long Stories - Post by : Infobiz - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 3290

CHAPTER XVII. MR WHITTLESTAFF MEDITATES A JOURNEYThe next day was Sunday, and was passed in absolute tranquillity. Nothing was said either by Mr Whittlestaff or by Mary Lawrie; nor, to the eyes of those among whom they lived, was there anything to show that their minds were disturbed. They went to church in the morning, as was usual with them, and Mary went also to the evening service. It was quite pleasant to see Mrs Baggett start for her slow Sabbath morning walk, and to observe how her appearance altogether belied that idea of rags and tatters which she had given...

CHAPTER XVI. MRS BAGGETT'S PHILOSOPHYThe next day was Saturday, and Mr Whittlestaff came out of his room early, intending to speak to Mrs Baggett. He had declared to himself that it was his purpose to give her some sound advice respecting her own affairs,--as far as her affairs and his were connected together. But low down in his mind, below the stratum in which his declared resolution was apparent to himself, there was a hope that he might get from her some comfort and strength as to his present purpose. Not but that he would ultimately do as he himself had... Long Stories - Post by : Infobiz - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 775

CHAPTER XV. MR WHITTLESTAFF GOES OUT TO DINNERThis would be her last opportunity. So Mary told herself as she got out of the carriage at Mr Hall's front door. It was made manifest to her by such a speech that he did not expect that she should do so, but looked upon her doing so as within the verge of possibility. She could still do it, and yet not encounter his disgust or his horror. How terrible was the importance to herself, and, as she believed, to the other man also. Was she not justified in so thinking? Mr Gordon had... Long Stories - Post by : Infobiz - Date : May 2012 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 1659
