Author of \T.he Leaden Caskd? \Thortii- croJVs Model* <&& cfej CHAPTBB III . Aunt Esther's letter was, after all, only an envelope in her hand writing enclosing & letter from some one else, with a few words from herself scribbled on its cover. \I won't write to you now, dear Lucy, as you are coming home so soon, and I have nothing to say to you but that I love you. I forward this letter to you at once, as it is marked 'Immediate!' What an important little person you are to re- ceive letters marked in this way! I have fceen puzzling myself all the morning to know from whom it can be.\ Lucy puz- zled herself too, and that for some time, without remembering* that her doubts could bet set at rest by owning it; it was too business-like in its appearance to be very attractive. When ?he did open it, it changed the aspect of her life hence- forth and forever. Of the various ways in which it affected Lucy's future, per- haps that in which the reader is likely to be the most interested is how it bore on her relations with the man who was cost- ing her eo much suffering, and that is best told by a letter of Mrs. Mostyn's, dated September 24th, in answer to his, received on September 14th :— \DEAR SIB:—I duly received your letter, and as duly showed it to my sister, on the evening of the ball at which we had hoped to see you.— It would be fooliBb and unworthy if I were to 8f^Jtb$t your profession of affection for my r giutea- took me by surprise. 1 bad seen for some time that you were very fond other. I bad no means of ascertaining the depth of your* affection, for I did not know then the import- ance you attached to taking a nigh position in the county. I then thought your idea of hap- piness might limit itself to winning the girl you loved (tf she were to tie won) and living with her on an income which I always understood to be sufficient for ordinary requirements. You, however, have Informed me of the extent of your feeling for her, of your wishes for the fu- ture, and fear of offending' your uncle, Sir Rich- ard. My Bister quite sees and understands yAur position, and readily acquiesces in your wish to meet her no more. She, and I more strongly still on her part, beg you to hold to this, as any renewal of acquaintance would bepojnful to her after you have so cloarly stated your fool- ings. ••You will doubtless be glad to know that this decision of yours in no way affects my sister's happiness; and you will also, I dare say,-be pleased to hear of a great pieoe of good for- tune which has befallen her. Yon, who so keenly approbate this world's wealth, will be able to understand what a great tiling it is for her to suddenly become the owner of a large for* t«ne, A person with whom she had but a alight acquaintance died about ten days ago and left her all he had. It Is needless to say how large his means were, nor do I as yet quite know; but she has a beautiful house in Chester Square, a large estate and house in Cumberland,' and money besides. She will have, they say, at least £8,000 a year. She heard of It the very day after the baU, so even if your letter had been one ft cause her pain, which I am happy to Inform you was not the case, this news would have speedily cured her. She is now actually richer than the uncle of whom you stand in Baoa awe. I write thus fully, because I am not likely to see you. I must beg you to adhere most strictly to your intention of avoiding this house. I expect my sister to visit me much more frequently, now that money is no object to her and she must be able to do so with com- . fort Yours, faithfully, \LETTICB MOSTYN.\ \Now I have done it!\ cried that lady to her husband, when she had signed her name. \I have written a letter that will plant a\ dagger at every turn I I am so \You have written a letter which will show Merivale most clearly that your poor little sister was very much attached to him!\ \And won't that be the biggest dagger of them all? But of course I don't want him to think so, and I don't think that he will.\ «*I am sure he will.\ ««I can't help it, th en. After all, he won't show my letter! It puts him in such a ridiculous position! Philip I am proud of it.\ *©oes it strike you as lady-like, dear?\ «I don't want to be lady-like—I want to be disagreeable! He will be ready to kill himself with vexation when he reads it.— You see he may spend his whole life in paying court to his uncle, and the old man may leave him nothing after all, whereas if he had been true to his love for Lucy, he would have had all this money now.— It is splendid!\ *»He will try to get her to forgive him.' \There won't be much difficulty in per- suading her to do that!\' \Lettice!\ \Forgiving him is not marrying him! I am convinced that nothing will ever in- duce her to dflrihat! 1 ' All Mrs. Mostyn said was true; Lucy Hderton was now a rich lady, and her wealth came from the odd old gentleman with whom she had traveled three months before. When she opened the lawyer's letter which had been foi-warded to her by Aunt Esther, she learned this astound- \ ing fact and had hardly recovered her eurprise when she reached home. The lawyer's letter was a catalogue of riches and wealth. Lucy had a handsome fur- nished house in Chester Square, contain- ing a gallery of ancient masters, folios of drawings and engravings, cabinets of Ve- netian glass and china, and etores of fine old plate. She had horsea and carriages, a large eBtate in Cumberland, and a yacht ing atCowes. Mr. Kenrick had left her l ( he had, and had written her a letter aich touched her inexpressibly. It waa 1 just two weeks befove he died, and a as follows :— MY DEAR CBn,t>:-i am ill, and I begin to see that I shall not be able to keep my appoint- ment with you, but that it is much more likely that before the 16«i of September I shall have set out on my long Journey from which no traveler returns. I have made my will; I have left you all that I possess. I have done this be- cause you are to me the living representative of my dear wife that was to have been. You are Uke her In face, form, and manner, and I think also that you are as good and sweet as she was. It pleases me to know that when I am gone; that one who resembles her so nearly will live In my old home, see the things which I gathered together for my pleasure and instruc- tion, and,! hope, enjoy them as 1 have done. I wish you never at any time to part with any of the land I leave you, or any of the houses, or any of the pictures, engravings, or books, Or china. I beg you not to discharge any of my old servants, unless grave misconduct on their part should make such a step absolutely neces- sary, and of this they are incapable. If you do part with any of them provide for them hand- somely, and see that they are always safe from want. \I entreat you to be a kind and indulgent mistress to men and women who have been treated more as friends than as servants. I wish you to take tho surname of Clavering. You can guess whose name it vros. If you ever marry, I make the condition that your husband takes my name, so that after all, a Claver.'ng and a Kenrick may marry nud live happily together in the houses which have seen puch sorrow. All these things are stated, and properly provided form my will; but I think you will like to hear what I wish in a letter to yourself. I have heard a little about you lately dear child, from some one who knows Litch- fleld and its neighborhood well. He says young Merivale is paying you great attention. Should you become engaged I wish you every hap- piness. Should any difficulty arise on the score of your want of fortune, I exhort you on no account whatever to renew the affair when you become rich. His hesitation will prove him to be unworthy of you. Any man possessed of youth, health, and education can carve out a way to provide for the girl he loves, if only he loves her enough to work for her, and both love each other enough to bear a little privation. If he has in any way drawn back, give him up; and if he renew his suit when he hears your circumstances have changed for the better give him up still more. If you are content with half- heartedness, or are soft-hearted and take him, you wlU regret it all your life. I advigo you to live in your London house at once, and not to go to Calderwater until next April. Take pos- session in Chester Square as soon as those slow folks the lawyers will permit you, and stay there quietly all the winter. I wish you to take lessons in music, drawing, painting, languages, x>r whatsoever you f anoy, and to work really hard at whatever you decide to study. You maybe a great proficient in these things al- ready, but something remains for everyone to learn. I desire you to spend two hours daily in reading books likely to do you good, not po- etry, and not novels. Buy what you read; do not subscribe to libraries—that weakens the mind—but buy what you want, and take a pride in adding works to my library to which those thatl bought will not feel ashamed. Ahl how I shall miss my books 1 Keep up such of my charities as deserve to be keptup,and as a rule, remember that it is better to know the people to whom you give your money, but that is not always feasible. Think kindly of me, and to please me keep things as much as possible In order in which I leave them. I shall like to pic- ture you living in the dear old places, and to know that all is looking as i t used to do. I do not know that this power is granted to us after death but it may be. Especially remember me on the day we met—the 15th of June. And now fareweJk Always act up to what you think is right. This is the last letter I shall ever write. God bless you, child, and grant this-be for your happiness—If it be not, it is afany rate the last mistake made by your friend, \HUGH EENRICK.\ Lucy and Aunt Esther were reading this letter for the hundredth time during the last four or five weeks. Lucy's eyes were full of tears. Aunt Esther did not see them. She said as she always said when she read it: \What very odd ideas the poor dear gentleman had,\ and then, as Lucy did not make any reply, she added, \But then, you see, if he had been like all the rest of the world he'would not have left f hat he had to you.\ \What fdnd i<Jeas he had!\ said Lucy, I never thought of it before j but do you see why he tells me to take lessons and read .BO much 1\ \To improve your mind, my love,\ re- plied Aunt Esther, Bententiously. \Partly no doubt, but more for the sake of preventing my wasting time in useless thoughts. Don't you see that he had heard of what was likely to happen at Litchfield, and that he wanted me to work hard that I might forget it the soon- er! He tells me to think kindly on him the 15th of June. I think most kindly of him every hour of my life.\ •And Lucy,\ said Aunt Esther, coming nearer to her $a& watching her very close- ly,, «what abbui Mr. Merivale? I hope you are forgetting Mm? Lucy shook her head. \Are-you happy, dear?\ \Not about that yet. Don't let us talk of it.\ Aunt Esther had known that she could receive no other answer. She saw how very unhappy the poor child was and how bravely she struggled to be herself again. Lucy had seen her future home, and many a time she fingered her own little collection of books, and hoped the books in Chester Square would not treat them with too great contempt. She had seen Mr. Kcarick's books. They were in a great big library, in stately bookcases inch hid every bit of the walls, and shut in the wire-latticed doors. They were bound in Russian leather, or materials which the most alarming housekeeper told her were known as mottled calf and tree calf or velum—very stiff, solid, and untakedownable they looked. \Never mind,\ said Lucy, when she thought of them, 'Til read you most faithfully two hours daily, and I'll try to buy you some companions likely to be agreeable to you.\ So much for the bookB; but when she thought of Mrs. Lishman, the house- keeper, and Mr. Sargill, the butler, she was terrified, for she did not see how by any effort of mind or will she could make herself acceptable to them. Both were old, dressed as stiffly and as handsomely as the books; both were full of old fash- ioned observances, and both evidently had their opinions fully formed on every sub- ject. Then came the departure from High- gate, and the last walk around the little garden, three times as big as the drawing- room, where the flowers would not grow properly. Lucy had a conservatory in Chester Square, which the gardener filled weekly with flowers, whose bright blos- soms were crushed against the glass thai the passers-by might see what a blaze of flowers there was in that house—a wealth of which those living- within weve for the most part unaware—for he only treated them to a back prospect. for china, or think her engravings any- thing but dull, or her pictures anything but dismal and dingy! People came sometimes and looked at them most rev- erently; the housekeeper, too, told her they were enormously valuable, and ev- ery time she was told so she went and\ looked at them again,. fervently wishing that she could see their beauty.' There was a cabinet of antique jewelry and this came more within the range of Lucy's comprehension. One day she was dull, for Aunt Esther had gone to pay the Mos- tyn's a short visit, and she herself had been dutifully reading for an hour or two in the library and was tired. She opened this cabinet, and while wondering at the strangeness and beauty of some of the necklaces and bracelets, began to put on one after the other, until at last she made herself look more like an Indian idol than anything else. She soon forgot what eho was doing, and ceased to take any inter- est in the contents of her cabinet, while her thoughts turned to Hazelwood and all that happened- there. Then she thought tell you why 1 came—business first, and pleasure after. It has come to my knowl- edge that my nephew, Robert Merivale, was very much attached to you. and, hon- estly speaking, I don't wonder at it; but that he was kept back from proposing- to- you by a strong feeling that I should not approve of such a step. I knew nothing about it at the time, or I could easily have set that right, indeed I should not have disliked the task of making his offer for him. He, however, said nothing to me, but let you go away without securing- you. Nay, more, he says lie wrote to tell you how fond he was of you, but that he had a Turk of an uncle, who insisted on his marrying some lady of good position in the county. He ought to have spoken tome; he-never did. I call that carry- ing respect and duty, and that kind of thing, to fanaticism; but he has suffered well for it! I did not know what was go- ing wrong, but he became more and more dismal every day, and at last the whole thing came out, and he and 1 laid our heads together, and thought if I came and of the poor girl whose name she had tak- a t e humble-pie for a thing, by the way, —, •-^ ™A« a «i« M *w ™^^*- an WD i c h wa s no fault of mine, for your name was never mentioned between us, you would forgive him and take him into fa- vor again. Now will you?\ All Lucy's attempts to interrupt this long speech had been cut short; but now he was looking steadily at her and wait- ing for an answer. \Come now, say you will forgive him. He is as fond of you as a man can be; he always was, and he is wretch edly unh appy!\ \I am very sorry he is unhappy,\ be- gan Lucy. \I was sure you would be—I told him so.\ \Yes but I do not wish to ever see him again. I must refuse to do that.\ \What? Piqued? But have I not just told you that it is my fault ? He misun- derstood my wishes; he paid too great re- spect to then! I really think you ought to forgive him.\ \You may say that I forgive him en- tirely. In fact I do not know that I have any right to be angry with him.\ \Oh yes, you have. He had no right to go so far and then turn back. Now do tell me one thing—had you any liking for en and whose place she seemed to fill, and wondered if she had ever been in this room, and had ever decked herself out in these jewels, and if Mr. Kenrick, whose portrait when a young man was hanging on the wall above her, had stood by ad- miring her, and telling her how beautiful she looked and how dearly he loved her? Her portrait, too, was there by Sir Thomas Lawrence, and many an hour Lucy spent in looking at it. She, still decked in her jewels was earnestly looking at it now when the door opened quietly, and Mrs. Lishman came in. Lucy blushed; she was ashamed that the stiff and formidable Mrs. Lishman should see her thus bediz- ened with beads and bracelets, and hasti- ly began to remove them, looking anxious- ly at Mrs. Lishman's face the while, to see if that good woman despised her friv- Olty . •\'\'-\*«ts5iCExr~f.. \I came to see if you wanted anything, Miss Clavering. It is rather lonely for you.\ There was kindness in her tone, and kindness in her eyes. They were £rey and honest, but usually very cold- looking. Her face, though strongly marked, .wn-s not unpleasmg. Her hair was twisted into tight, uncompromising little knots, and then skewered or pinned on each temple. These knots just ap- peared beyond her widow-like plain cap of softly pleated net. Mrs. Lishman al- ways wore a black silk dress and a net landkerchief fastened with a diamond pin which Mr. Kenrick had given her; but whenever this pin was lost, everyone in the house, from the Butler, whose fig- ure did not lend itself readily to stooping, to the kitchen-maid, searched high and low until it was found. * \Thank you for thinking of me; I am rather dull,\ said Lucy gratefully. \I was looking at that picture;\ and still she stripped off her adornments one by one, hoping all the time that Mrs. Lish- man had not Been them. \That picture is the very 'moral' of you, Miss Clavering.\ \You know, Mrs, Lishman, that is why Mr. Kenrick left this house to me. Do you lind his having left his property to me ?\ asked Lucy, humbly. \That depends,\ replied Mrs. Lishman guardedly. \I think not,; but I'll see how things go on before I pronounce a judg- ment.\ \Mrs. Lishman, Mr. Kenrick told me he wished me to keep everything as he had it. You will help me to obey him won't you?\ \Naturally Miss Clavering, I 3b all s to that,\ said Mrs. Lishman, and her state of mind was indecipherable. „, 11LWC A111U11C1B auu 6Cllt \If you have any spare time, Mrs. Lish- j f or their own happiness t T __.*~1 ^ . 1.1 XT 1, iU« •»- , , -. him?' Lucy blushed crimson. It cost her a man, I wish you would go through the house with me and tell me a little about Mr. Kenrick—where he used to sit,I mean, what he did, and as much as you can about him.\\ \There is not much to tell about him, Miss. He was, so to, speak, a very inward- minded gentleman.\ \I thought he talked very openly when I saw him.\ \He took to you, you see, Miss, along of the likeness. It was not his way to strike up with strangers readily, I can assure you of that.\ Mrs. Lishman took Lu«y into all the rooms, and after about an hour spent in this way she condescended to say, \So far. as I can see at present, Miss Clavering, I think you and I might do very well to- gether.\ lam so glad to hear you say that!\ cried Lucy—and truly this semi-gracious speech did make her very happy. The last room they entered was a little sitting- room upstairs in which Lucy often spent an hour-or two. \I often see you here, Miss Clavering,\ said Mrs. Lishman. \It was furnished to be young Mrs. Kenrick's boudoir, I be- lieve. It was before my time, of course, but I have heard all about it.\ \But said Lucy, \was the wedding so near! I never knew that ?\ \Mrs. Hugh Kenrick, ma'am, as was to have been, died most unfortunately just a short fortnight before her wedding-day.\ \How very dreadful!\ \Yea it was a pity! Not that I am one that holds much with marrying; but then thiB was a wedding as had a right to be, for they both loved each other like—like nothing I can think of strong enough to compare them to,\ said Mrs. Lishman.— \There was no looking to anything but their love and respect for each other in either of them. That made him have a good right to fret for her when she was taken.\ How Mrs. Lishman's words struck CHAPTER IV. At first Lucy's life in Chester Square was rather trying. She was so afraid of the servants that the chief aim of her ex- istence was 1o try to make them not no- tice that she was in the house; but there were so many of them, and the furniture was so old fashioned and stately, her fee sank so deep in the soft carpets, the rooms were so large and strange to her, that she feared she should never feel at home there. Then, too, she could not read her grave, well-bound books which were to do her so much good, without finding her at- tention wander, nor could she find a taste home! Lucy knew that she had \no right\ to fret for Robert Merivale, for his love for her was nothing like so strong as his love for money and position. Nev- ertheless her heart knew its own bitter- ness! Just at this moment a card was brought to Lucy. Mrs. Lishman watched her face as she read the name on it, and was sure it was the name of tome'one whom she did not wish to see. \Sir Richard Meri- vale.\ Lucy looked at the man who brought it, as if to ,see whether any way of escape remained open to her. \The gentleman is in the library, mad- am,\ said he. \He told me to say that he desired to see you on a matter of pressing importance.\ Her impulse was to refuse to see him, but on second thoughts she went. Sir Richard Merivale was all but a stranger struggle, but she said \I liked him very much indeed.\ \I admire your sincerity; then tell me whether if he had offered at that time, you would have accepted him ?\ * \Sir Richard, it is of no use to talk of this now! He did not offer to me. He told me then that he could not give up his chances of advancement for my sake. He took his line then, and I, of course, accept- ed it. Nothing could ever make me feel for him now as I did before.\ \Not when you bear what I tell you?\ \No not when K hear what you tell me.\ \I think that if you saw him—if you heard his Justification from his own lips \I have his letter. I never could like him again after reading that. I must ask you to say no more on this subject. My mind is mide up. Nothing can change me.\ ..»-..—«r-_x^. \He really was a most confounded fool!\ said Sir Richard, heartily. \He wrote that letter without consulting me. People call me a cross old curmudgeon; but I am certain of one thing, and that is that I can take a generous vie-w far more quickly than they can. 'Well, but child, don't be so very firm and decided. Peo- ple stiffen themselves up,and think it very grand and fine to be unforgiving-, when a little kindness and generosity would be 'I could never be happy with anyone I did not respect, and I do not respect m.\ \If you saw him, you might believe him, when you do not believe me.\ \I do believe you, but you have said nothing to make me alter my opinion of the past. It is past—leave it—let us say no more about it.\ '•But I want you to be my niece,\ plead- ed Sir Richard. \You will be coming down to Litchfield some day soon, won't you ?\ l Yes, but you must excuse me if I de- cline to see your nephew when I am there.\ \Oh no, now don't be so hard! I t is not your real nature to be so. I can see that.\ This was true. Lucy's heart was plead- ing Sir Richard's cause with all its might She found the battle a very hard one., \You will be happier if you do as I ask you,\ said he. \Oh! please Sir Richard, leave, me,\ cried poorJLucy, piteously. \You must not say any more—indeed I will never see him again. 1 ' He left her, and hardly had he gone be- fore she flung herself into a comer of the sofa and sobbed convulsively—the strain had been almost beyond her strength.— Before many minutes had passed, the door opened once more. Lucy did not look up; her eyes were full of tears, her heart very sore, her head very weary; her only thought was, \He has come back. Oh! I cannot, cannot bear to go through all that again. How cruel!\ Some one came towai-ds her, flung him- self on his knees took her hand. She turned and looked through her tears—it was Robert Merivale himself! \Lucy my dear, dear Lucy, you do love me a little! You are crying. You are unhappy. Have some pity on me. Have some belief in me. I have loved you, and you only, ever since I first saw you.\ Then she sprang to her feet, and tore her hand away from him. \Spare me!\ she said faintly. \Why are you here?\ \I ought to be here! Lucy, you are not happy.\ . \I know I am not. I do not deny it,' said she. \You do love me a little, Lucy.\ \I know I do.\ \Ah! Thank God! My uncle made me so wretched. He said there was no hope for me; but there ia a chance of hap- piness yet.\ \Not in the way you mean. I never can forgive what happened at Hazelwood! It is cruel of yon to give me this pain.— You ought not to have come here! I've been trying to overcome what I felt for you. I was getting over it—and now you come and I shall have to begin afresh.\ \No yon shall not begin. You own you love me a little. I love you most passion- than a girl when I first saw you; I loved you then, and I have loved youever sincel So help me God, I have not Ijnown a hap- py hour &ince last I saw you!\ He saw a movement of impatience and disbelief, and cried, \You do not believe me—I tell you I nearly shot myself one night lately! I should have done it if it had not been for my uncle. He said he would come and talk to you.\ \No talking can change me,'' said Lucy. \Listen to the feeling-in your own heart, which tells you to forgive me and to love me—you know you would be happier if you yielded—Dear Lucy you do not know how g-ood I will be to you.\ Lucy was still standing- by the sofa—he was standing by her—her eyes were cast down; she dared not let them meet his.— His voice made her tremble, his words stirred her profoundly. She saw \his hand quivering with desire to clasp hers which was near it; she knew she loved him still. Alas, she knew also that she despised him, and that if she lived to be a hun- dred, she should never cease to do so when she remembered that letter. Would it be possible to love him and set it aside? She wondered if that could be. What if she drove him to kill himself? Now when he left her she would be more miserable than ever, for that dread would be added to her other pain. She felt his fingers touch hers—should she—could she yield? She felt his hand close on hers, and still she stood as if spell-bound. \Lucy said he, \my whole life shall be spent in showing my love and grati- tude.\ Then he was making sure of her forgiveness. Her strength came back to her; she wrenched her hand away—\Oh no, no, no,\ she cried, \you are are quite wrong! I cannot listen to you. I do not believe in your love. You cannot make me be- lieve in it. Good-bye, and for ever.\ Be- fore he could prevent her she was gone. She dared not stay;—the temptation to listen to him, and thus at once and forev- er, to quiet the aching pain she felt in her heart was so great. She was true to her resolution; if she had stayed she might perhaps have yielded. She ran back to the room where she had left Mrs. Lish- man, and to her surprise found her still there, walking up and down and waiting for her* She did not know that the poor woman was feeling very anxious about her. Lucy saw a motherly look in Mrs. Lishman's face—a look of pitying kind- ness. ^ She ran up to her and threw her arms'around her, and said, \Oh Mrs. Lishman, I am such a poor miserable girl!\ \My poor lamb, I am afraid so.'* \Will he follow me, do you think ?— Make him go if he does. I cannot, can- not see him again.\ \You shall not see him unless you like! You have come bravely out of it, I can see that,\ said Mrs. Lishman, who knew all that could be told by the Mostyns' ser- vants, and by the familiar process of put- ting two and two together. \If I only had Aunt Esther here,\ said Lucy, \I am so alone!\ \Not alone,\ said Mrs. Lishman, \least- 'ays not if you will count me as anybody. Miss Clavering, if you will trust me, I'll do anything I can for you.\ After that day, if Mrs. Lishman had been Lucy's own mother she could not have been more de- voted to her.
