SCRIPTION. Some years ago I read the Life of Gif-
ford, and straightway determined to go
A. , i .
to some college, and become a great
scholar. In what way this was to be",. " b stockin&' thought I; for she
done, I did not know; nor, indeed, did it d,pt her Pen mto the Sreat round Pewter;
seem very easy, for my mother was a lukstand aad - 011 8
widow, and her property was small. But einS us5 but m? Suide nt forward,
whatever scheme I might decide upon, to
come to London, it seemed, must neces
sarily be the first step; so to London I
came in my eighteenth year.
I wandered in grand squares and
crowded streets. I loitered at print shops
and book stalls. I idled in museums and
gallarics profiting by nothing that I saw,
because I was haunted with a bewilder
ing feeling of how much there was to be
teen. I delayed presenting letters of
recommendation, and when I did present
them, was treated so coldly that I never
went again. I looked for Miiton'o house
at Westminister, and could not find it.
I took a book sometimes and lounged ail
day in one of the Inns of Court, where
there was a gurden; and I felt more lone
ly than Robinson Crusoe. My faith in
London was gone. I saw plainly enough
what Loudou was. A great family of

this was a large house, almost entitled to
be called a mansion, for it had a flight of
many stone steps, a heavy oaken porch,
profusely carved with fruits, and tangled
ribbons and leaves, and cherubim; a mas-

History of London, I discovered that this ,
Dr. Chillin-rworth was a relative of the
. ,. . fl, . j;n,3 :
great divine of that name, who died in
fc i.ivwi- t
Charles the Second's reigon, and left large
property for the founding of the theolog-
ical library; for the re-publication to all
time, of certain religious works written
, , x . f , j e -Tn.
by himself, that I had never heard of, for
the annual charitable relief of the widows
of poor clergymen (who should be found
to have studied those works); and lastly,
for the sending yearly to a Scotch College

the scholarships, too, if any poor student ,
um iou -j , , jv
chanced to hear of them. I would just
step over and ask. j
I did step over and pulled the pear-
shaped bell-handle, making such an in-;
cessant ringing in some distant part of
the house that if tbe trustees of Dr. i
Chillingworth had resolved to go into a

had), they anight have done so with a

'Mr. Thaiue is not in, miss?' I said. j
'Xo, sir. Is it anything about the li
brary?' j
'About the scholarships ' ;
0 yes. There will be no examination
till next October; for the last examination
has just taken place. You can send in
3our testimonials. You will be examined
in the Iliad first four books; the An
tigone and the Medea; and generally in
Horace, Virgil, Tacitus, and Terence. ,
In English, the authors are Paley. Locke,
and Lardner. There are some other sub-!
jects which you will find in this paper.'
She looked very serious, as if it was quite .
natural for a young lady to know all about ,
such things ; and then putting her hair
behind her ears, she bent forward, and
went on with her writing. I was awed.
I had been taught to consider a learned
a scholar, that he nourished his bod3
with bread and water, while his mind
banqueted with the wisest and the might-'
icit. The following day I presented my-'
self again at the library, and saw Mr.
Thaiue, the librarian, lie was a man in
the prime of life, tall, and dressed like a
clergyman. There was a certain severity
, J J
m u:s tone and manner, which struck me
but it worc 0ff when I had ex-
piained to him the object of my ambition,
'Are 3ou well versed in tbe authors in
which you will be examined?' he asked,
'You must lose no time, then. There,
ia rarely a grcafc competition; indeed, wo
j,ave had n0 applicants on some occasions.
But the examiners will not appoint you
unless you show considerable proficiency

He offered me the use of the library; and
promising to assist me in any way in his
power he bade me good morning

that I had spoken to the first time; but

by degrees, he grew more friendly with .

I had seen several young ladies, young
er than the first.
j 'I had once a son,' he replied, 'but'
he paused a moment, and then added,'he
is dead. His voice faltered and his agi-'
tation was so evident, that I thought his 1
loss must have been recent, but he did j
not wear mourning. Such a display of
tenderness in a man who had at first -
seemed to me naturally stern, surprised .
me; but I said nothing, and soon after-'
wards he left me abruptly. I read in
the library for some time, but he did not

'Perhaps,' I said, 'you can direct me

notes;' and then she smiled, and said, 'I

a book. 'There is the best edition, I be -
She looked at me, and seeing mo smil -

'You think it very strange to find I know
these books,' she said. 'But I am not

'A lady will never admit that she un-

"But I don't understand Greek," she

the authors names, like a parrot. I have

'Oh no. I

She looked, to me. co interesting as '

to my studies. I found that I could read

to be an eaily riser: I delayed lighting '
my lamp when it was getting dusk, to sit
and watch the glowing cinders on the fire.:
It was winter time; and one day when
the rain was falling making pools in the '
smoky little garden opposite, and the
drops kept gathering in ledges and win-.
dowsills, and falling with a continued
plash, I stood a long time at the window
and felt as lonely as I had felt in the old
times. But at last I made a solemn res-
olution to avoid the place, and apply my-
self whollv to mv studies: not thinkino-
thus, to come to love her less, but choos
ing this as the best means of winning her
one day. For as yet I felt that I could
not even speak to her of ra3r affection.
I had nothing. Even if I won this schol

future was still uncertain. The growing

and I presented myself, and was one of
the two chosen among four competitors. ;
I was to start for the college in a few
days. It seemed to me very hard to
leave her for three years, trusting to the '
hope that she would form no attachment
in all that time; but my mind was made j
up. 'She will love me the better perhaps,'
thought I. 'when she knows of this;' and
I felt almost a superstitious conviction;
that all would turn out well one day
But, meeting her father in the library,

and I related my own old hopes and j

In a few days I started for Scotland a
gain; but this time I had nothing to foar.
Kate had promised me to write continu
ally, and had pledged me her word not
to forget me a day in her absence.
That day twelvemonth, I returned to I
London again. I came a little before the
time I had mentioned, thinking to sur-
prise them. It was on an afternoon in
November, just as it was growing dark,
that I turned again into the old street. !
There was no one passing through it, but
myself ; I looked up at the window where ,
I had sat at my studies, and saw that
was dark, but at the library there was a:
strong light upon the blinds, on the ground '
floor a light so unsteady, that 1 knew it

' and shut the door. I crossed the roadj
quickly; but as I passed the iron railing, '
1 noticed some one in the enclosure. It
f was a man, and he stood quite near to
'the window of a little room at the side of'
;' the house, almost on a level with the'
'ground. I had never seen any one in1
'this enclosure ; and to find a man there,
at dark, in the winter-time, excited
curiosity. 1 heard him tan upon the
glass ; and a moment after the window
was opened cautious, then I could hear ;
voices whispering indistinctly; till at last, '
they grew louder and I could catch the ,
words. It was Kate's voice I heard first: (
I knew it too well to have any doubts, j
"I dare not stay here an3r longer, Tien-,
ry, she said. "My father would never 1
forgive me for not telling him of this, if,

"2s o, no, Kate; you want to be gone," j
