"I remember him a little boy," said the duchess, "a pretty little boy,

but very shy. His mother brought him to us one day. She was a dear

friend of mine; you know she was one of my bridesmaids?"

"And you have never seen him since, mamma?" inquired a married daughter,

who looked like the younger sister of her mother.

"Never; he was an orphanshortly after; I have often reproached myself,

but it is so difficult to see boys. Then, he never went to school, but

was brought up in the Highlands with a rather savage uncle; and if he

and Bertram had not become friends at Christchurch, I do not well see

how we ever could have known him."

These remarks were made in the morning-room of Brentham, where the

mistress of the mansion sat surrounded by her daughters, all occupied

with various works. One knitted a purse, another adorned a slipper a

third emblazoned a page. Beautiful forms in counsel leaned over frames

embroidery, while two fair sisters more remoteoccasionally burst into

melody as they tried the passages of a new air, which had been dedicated

to them in the manuscript of some devoted friend.

The duchess, one of the greatest heiresses of Britain, singularly

beautify and gifted with native grace, had married in her teens one of

the wealthiest and most powerful of our nobles, and scarcely order than

herself. Her husband was as distinguished for his appearance and his

manners as his bride, and those who speculate on race were interested

in watching the development of their progeny, who in form and color, and

voice, and manner, and mind, were a reproduction of their parents,

who seemed only the elder brother and sister of a gifted circle. The

daughters with one exception came first, and all met the same fate.

After seventeen years of a delicious home they were presented, and

immediately married; and all to personages of high consideration. After

the first conquest, this fate seemed as regular as the order of Nature.

Then came a son, who was now at Christchurch, and then several others,

some at school, and some scarcely out of the nursery. There was one

daughter unmarried, and she was to be presented next season. Though

the family likeness was still apparent in Lady Corisande, in general

expression she differed from her sisters. They were all alike with their

delicate aquiline noses, bright complexions, short upper lips, and eyes

of sunny light. The beauty of Lady Corisande was even more distinguished

and more regular, but whether it were the effect of her dark-brown hair

and darker eyes, her countenance had not the lustre of the res, and its

expression was grave and perhaps pensive.

The duke, though still young, and naturally of a gay and joyous

temperament, had a high sense of duty, and strong domestic feelings. He

was never wanting in his public place, and he was fond of his wife and

his children; still more, proud of them. Every day when he looked into

the glass, and gave the last touch to his consummate toilet, he offered

his grateful thanks to Providence that his family was not unworthy of


His grace was accustomed to say that he had only one misfortune, and

it was a great one; he had no home. His family had married so many

heiresses, and he, consequently, possessed so many halls and castles, at

all of which, periodically, he wished, from a right feeling, to reside,

that there was no sacred spot identified with his life in which his

heart, in the bustle and tumult of existence, could take refuge.

Brentham was the original seat of his family, and he was even

passionately fond of it; but it was remarkable how very short a period

of his yearly life was passed under its stately roof. So it was his

custom always to repair to Brentham the moment the season was over, and

he would exact from his children, that, however short might be the time,

they would be his companions under those circumstances. The daughters

loved Brentham, and they loved to please their father; but the

sons-in-law, though they were what is called devoted to their wives,

and, unusual as it may seem, scarcely less attached to their legal

parents, did not fall very easily into this arrangement. The country

in August without sport was unquestionably to them a severe trial:

nevertheless, they rarely omitted making their appearance, and, if they

did occasionally vanish, sometimes to Cowes, sometimes to Switzerland,

sometimes to Norway, they always wrote to their wives, and always

alluded to their immediate or approaching return; and their letters

gracefully contributed to the fund of domestic amusement.

And yet it would be difficult to find a fairer scene than Brentham

offered, especially in the lustrous effulgence of a glorious English

summer. It was an Italian palace of freestone; vast, ornate, and in

scrupulous condition; its spacious and graceful chambers filled with

treasures of art, and rising itself from statued and stately terraces.

At their foot spread a gardened domain of considerable extent, bright

with flowers, dim with coverts of rare shrubs, and musical with

fountains. Its limit reached a park, with timber such as the midland

counties only can produce. The fallow deer trooped among its ferny

solitudes and gigantic oaks; but, beyond the waters of the broad and

winding lake, the scene became more savage, and the eye caught the dark

forms of the red deer on some jutting mount, shrinking with scorn from

communion with his gentler brethren.


Lothair was the little boy whom the duchess remembered. He was a

posthumous child, and soon lost a devoted mother. His only relation was

one of his two guardians, a Scotch noble--a Presbyterian and a Whig.

This uncle was a widower with some children, but they were girls, and,

though Lothair was attached to them, too young to be his companions.

Their father was a keen, hard man, honorable and just but with no

softness of heart or manner. He guarded with precise knowledge and with

unceasing vigilance over Lothair's vast inheritance, which was in many

counties and in more than one kingdom; but he educated him in a Highland

home, and when he had reached boyhood thought fit to send him to the

High School of Edinburgh. Lothair passed a monotonous, if not a dull,

life; but he found occasionalsolace in the scenes of a wild and

beautiful nature, and delight in all the sports of the field and forest,

in which he was early initiated and completely indulged. Although an

Englishman, he was fifteen before he re-visited his country, and then

his glimpses of England were brief, and to him scarcely satisfactory. He

was hurried sometimes to vast domains, which he heard were his own; and

sometimes whisked to the huge metropolis, where he was shown St. Paul's

and the British-Museum. These visits left a vague impression of bustle

without kindness and exhaustion without excitement; and he was glad to

get back to his glens, to the moor and the mountain-streams.

His father, in the selection of his guardians, had not contemplated

this system of education. While he secured by the appointment of his

brother-in-law, the most competent and trustworthy steward of his son's

fortune, he had depended on another for that influence which should

mould the character, guide the opinions, and form the tastes of his

child. The other guardian was a clergyman, his father's private tutor

and heart-friend; scarcely his parent's senior, but exercising over

him irresistible influence, for he was a man of shining talents and

abounding knowledge, brilliant and profound. But unhappily, shortly

after Lothair became an orphan, this distinguished man seceded from the

Anglican communion, and entered the Church of Rome. From this moment

there was war between the guardians. The uncle endeavored to drive his

colleague from the trust: in this he failed, for the priest would not

renounce his office. The Scotch noble succeeded, however, in making it

a fruitless one: he thwarted every suggestion that emanated from the

obnoxious quarter; and, indeed, the secret reason of the almost constant

residence of Lothair in Scotland, and of his harsh education, was the

fear of his relative, that the moment he crossed the border he might, by

some mysterious process, fall under the influence that his guardian so

much dreaded and detested.

There was however, a limit to these severe precautions, even before

Lothair should reach his majority. His father had expressed in his will

that his son should be educated at the University of Oxford, and at the

same college of which he had been a member. His uncle was of opinion he

complied with the spirit of this instruction by sending Lothair to the

University of Edinburgh, which would give the last tonic to his moral

system; and then commenced a celebrated chancery-suit, instituted by the

Roman Catholic guardian, in order to enforce a literal compliance

with the educational condition of the will. The uncle looked upon

this movement as a popish plot, and had recourse to every available

allegation and argument to baffle it: but ultimately in vain. With every

precaution to secure his Protestant principles, and to guard against the

influence, or even personal interference of his Roman Catholic guardian,

the lord-chancellor decided that Lothair should be sent to Christchurch.

Here Lothair, who had never been favored with a companion of his own

age and station, soon found a congenial one in the heir of Brentham.

Inseparable in pastime, not dissociated even in study, sympathizing

companionship soon ripened into fervent friendship. They lived so

much together that the idea of separation became not only painful but

impossible; and, when vacation arrived, and Brentham was to be visited

by its future lord, what more natural than that it should be arranged

that Lothair should be a visitor to his domain?


Although Lothair was the possessor of as many palaces and castles as the

duke himself, it is curious that his first dinner at Brentham was

almost his introduction into refined society. He had been a guest at the

occasional banquets of his uncle; but these were festivals of the

Picts and Scots; rude plenty and coarse splendor, with noise instead of

conversation, and a tumult of obstructive defendants, who impeded, by

their want of skill, the very convenience which they were purposed to

facilitate. How different the surrounding scene! A table covered with

flowers, bright with fanciful crystal, and porcelain that had belonged

to sovereigns, who had given a name to its color or its form. As

for those present, all seemed grace and gentleness, from the radiant

daughters of the house to the noiseless attendants that anticipated all

his wants, and sometimes seemed to suggest his wishes.

Lothair sat between two of the married daughters. They addressed him

with so much sympathy that he was quite enchanted. When they asked their

pretty questions and made their sparkling remarks, roses seemed to drop

from their lips, and sometimes diamonds. It was a rather large party,

for the Brentham family were so numerous that they themselves made

a festival. There were four married daughters, the duke and two

sons-in-law, a clergyman or two, and some ladies and gentlemen who were

seldom absent from this circle, and who, by their useful talents and

various accomplishments, alleviated the toil or cares of life from which

even princes are not exempt.

When the ladies had retired to the duchess's drawing-room, all the

married daughters clustered round their mother.

"Do you know, mamma, we all think him very, good-looking," said the

youngest married daughter, the wife of the listless and handsome St.


"And not at all shy," said Lady Montairy, "though reserved."

"I admire deep-blue eyes with dark lashes," said the duchess.

Notwithstanding the decision of Lady Montairy, Lothair was scarcely free

from embarrassment when he rejoined the ladies; and was so afraid of

standing alone, or talking only to men, that he was almost on the point

of findingrefuge in his dinner-companions, had not he instinctively

felt that this would have been a social blunder. But the duchess

relieved him: her gracious glance caught his at the right moment, and

she rose and met him some way as he advanced. The friends had arrived

so late, that Lothair had had only time to make a reverence of ceremony

before dinner.

"It is not our first meeting," said her grace; "but that you cannot


"Indeed I do," said Lothair, "and your grace gave me a golden heart."

"How can you remember such things," exclaimed the duchess, "which I had

myself forgotten!"

"I have rather a good memory," replied Lothair; "and it is not wonderful

that I should remember this, for it is the only present that ever was

made me."

The evenings at Brentham were short, but they were sweet. It was a

musical family, without being fanatical on the subject. There was always

music, but it was not permitted that the guests should be deprived of

other amusements. But music was the basis of the evening's campaigns.

The duke himself sometimes took a second; the four married daughters

warbled sweetly; but the great performer was Lady Corisande. When her

impassioned tones sounded, there was a hushed silence in every chamber;

otherwise, many things were said and done amid accompanying melodies,

that animated without distracting even a whistplayer. The duke himself

rather preferred a game of piquet or cart with Captain Mildmay,

and sometimes retired with a troop to a distant, but still visible,

apartment, where they played with billiard-balls games which were not


The ladies had retired, the duke had taken his glass of seltzer-water,

and had disappeared. The gentry lingered and looked at each other, as if

they were an assembly of poachers gathering for an expedition, and then

Lord St. Aldegonde, tall, fair, and languid, said to Lothair, "do you



"I should have thought Bertram would have seduced you by this time. Then

let us try. Montairy will give you one of his cigarettes, so mild that

his wife never finds him out."


The breakfast-room at Brentham was very bright. It opened on a garden

of its own, which, at this season, was so glowing, and cultured into

patterns so fanciful and finished, that it had the resemblance of a vast

mosaic. The walls of the chamber were covered with bright drawings and

sketches of our modern masters, and frames of interesting miniatures,

and the meal was served on half a dozen or more round tables, which vied

with each other in grace and merriment; brilliant as a cluster of Greek

or Italian republics, instead of a great metropolitan table, like

a central government absorbing all the genius and resources of the


Every scene In this life at Brentham charmed Lothair, who, though not

conscious of being of a particularly gloomy temper, often felt that

he had, somehow or other, hitherto passed through life rarely with

pleasure, and never with joy.

After breakfast the ladies retired to their morning-room, and the

gentlemen strolled to the stables, Lord St. Aldegonde lighting a Manilla

cheroot of enormous length. As Lothair was very fond of horses, this

delighted him. The stables at Brentham were rather too far from the

house, but they were magnificent, and the stud worthy of them. It was

numerous and choice, and, above all it was useful. It could supply,

a readier number of capital riding-horses than any stable in England.

Brentham was a great riding family. In the summer season the duke

delighted to head a numerous troop, penetrate far into the country, and

scamper home to a nine-o'clock dinner. All the ladies of the house were

fond and fine horse-women. The mount of one of these riding-parties was

magical. The dames and damsels vaulted on their barbs, and genets,

and thorough-bred hacks, with such airy majesty; they were absolutely

overwhelming with their bewildering habits and their bewitching hats.

Every thing was so new in this life at Brentham to Lothair, as well

as so agreeable, that the first days passed by no means rapidly; for,
