Smith. O O XX Will smoke "Proceeding up the river we came near to the public works. "Near Bic Island we saw whales spouting water at a great height, and a habitant came out in a boat with a large basket of eggs, which he disposed of at a shilling per dozen, and so we continued on until the domes and towers of Quebec came in sight and I began to realize the inexpressible joy of being at home once more."* 鈥淲e must never leave him to himself,鈥?said Theobald impressively; 鈥渨e can neither of us wish that.鈥? 鈥淚 was forgetting,鈥?said he, as he bade Martin good-night. 鈥淎ll of what I said was to prove that if you were in need of a foster-mother, P茅rigord will take you to her bosom.鈥? 成a人动漫电影在线观看 (See illustration.)

When he mentioned details unknown to her she paused in her task and raised her eyes. Like her own, his autobiography was a catalogue of incompetence, but it held no record of frustrated ambitions鈥攏o record of any ambitious desire whatever. It shewed the tame ass鈥檚 unreflecting acquiescence in its lot of drudgery. There had been no passionate craving for things of delight. Why cry for the moon? With a salary of a hundred and thirty-five pounds a year out of which he must contribute to the support of his widowed mother, a man can purchase for himself but little splendour of existence, and Martin was not one of those to whom splendour comes unbought. He had lived, semi-content, in a fog splendour-obscuring, for the last ten years. But this evening the fog had lifted. The glamour of Paris, even the Pantheon and the Eiffel Tower sarcastically mentioned by Corinna, had helped to dispel it. So had Corinna鈥檚 sisterly interest in his dull affairs. And so, more than all, had helped the self-analysis formulated under the compelling power of the philanthropist with shiny coat-sleeves and frayed linen, at once priest, lawyer and physician who had pocketed his five francs fee.
