he had acquired at a charity school; but
my mother being dead, and 1 the only

him happy—a learned education. I was
therefore sent to the grammar school of
C—, and the tee to Cambridge, with a
view, of qualifying me for holy orders.

dinner, by . it of punctui
pressed with this idea, I blushed the deep:
est crimson as my name was repeatedly
announced by the servants, who ushered
me into the library, scarcely knowing
whom I saw. At my entrance I sum
moned all my fbrtitude, and made my
new-learned bow to Lady Barton; but un
fortunately bringing back my left foot to
the third position, I trod on the gouty toe
of poor Sir Thomas, who had followed
close at my heels to be the nomenclator of
the family. The confusion this occasioned
in me is hardly to be conceived, since none
but bashful men can judge of my distress;
and of that description the number, I be
lieve, is very small indeed. The barc
net's politeness by degrees dissipated my
concern; and the cheerfulness of her lady
ship, joined to the familiar chat of the
young ladies and their brothers, insensi
bly led me to throw off my reserve and
sheepishness, till at length I ventured to
join in conversation, and even to start
fresh subjects. '
The library in which we were seated,
being richly furnished with books in ele
gant binding, I conceived that Sir Thomas
was a man devoted to literature, and ven
tured to give my opinion respecting the
several editions of the Greek classics, in
which Sir Thomas's ideas entirely coin
cided with mine. While talking on this
subject my attention was directed to an
edition of Xenophon in sixteen volumes,
which, as I had never heard of such a
thing, greatly excited my curiosity and I
rose to examine what it could be. Zhebar
onet saw what I was about, and, as I sup
posed willingly to save me the trouble, rose
to take down the volumes, which made me
more eager to prevent him, and hastily
laying my hand on the first volume I pull
ed it forcibly; but lo! instead of books, a
board, which by the book binder's art had
been made to look like sixteen volumes,
came tumbling down and unluckily pitch
ed upon an inkstand on the table under it. In
vain did Sir Thomas assure me there was
no harm; I saw the ink streaming from a
beautiful inlaid table on the splendid Tur
key carpet, and scarce knowing what I
did, attempted to stop its progress with
my white pocket handkerchief. In the
height of my confusion we were informed
that dinner was served up, and with joy I
then understood that the bell which at
first had so alarmed my fear was only the
half-hour dinner bell.
Id walking through the hall and suite
of apartnit= to 'fhb dining room I had
time partially to collect my scattered sen
ses, and was desired to take my seat be
tween Lady Barton and hoar eldest daugh
ter at the table. Since the fall of the
wooden Xenophon my face had been con
tinually burning like a fire-brand; and I
was just beginning to recover myself, and
to feel comfortably cool, Mum as unlocked
for accident rekindled all my heat and
Having set my plate of soup too near
the edge of the table, in bowing to Miss
Dinah, who politely cotnplimented me on
the pattern of my waistcoat, discharged
the whole scalding contents into my lap.
In spite of an immediate supply of nap
kins to wipe the surface of my clothes,
my trowsers were not stouttinouth to save
me from the paintlitt Eyfrootts'or this stiklden
fomentation and for scone minutes my
legs sad thighs seemed stewettin a. boiling
caldron.. At last, when the. pain began to
abate I managed 'to bear it in silence, and
sat with my lower extremities parboiled,
amidst the stilled giggling of the servants.
I will not inflict upon ray readers a re
lation of all the blunders which I made
during the first course ; of my spilling a
sauce-boat, upsetting a salt-cellar, etc.;
rather let me hasten to the second course,
when fresh disasters quite overwhelmed
I had a piece of rich sweet pudding on
Lmy fork when Miss Louisa Barton begged
to trouble me for a pigeon that stood near
me. In my haste, scarce knowing what
I did, I whipped the hot pudding into my '
mouth. It was impossible to conceal my
agony, my eyes were starting from their
sockets. At Wet, in spite of shame and '
resolution; I was compelled to drop the
cause of torment on my plate. Sir Thomas,
his sons, and the ladies all coißassionat
ed my misfortune each advised a dif
ferent application., One 'recommended' oil,
another water, bat all agreed that wine
was best for drawing out the heat ; and a
glass of sherry vtas ordered me. The glass
was eagerly seized by me • oh ! low shall

—and I Was crushed by bun/hi of laughter

In yain'tlid Sir Thomas reprimand his
servants ; in vain did Lady Barton chide
her daughters.; for the measure of my
shame and their diversion was not yet

state of perspiration which this
accident had caused, without considera

handkerchief, which was still wet from
the consequences of the Xenophcin, and
