Now a bold iceberg rose before us, reminding me of pictures of Gibraltar; but this berg was all of snow, and, as well as we could guess, about 150 feet high. Then another, most graceful in shape, appeared, like a sculptured piece of alabaster, wearing a huge jewel of pale greenish blue; this, from its pure beauty, Louis called 鈥淭he Maiden.鈥?We turned from its softer loveliness, to gaze on that which I thought the finest iceberg of all, the ruins of some huge amphitheatre. 鈥楢s a rule she rose very early in the morning. After her morning walk, service, and breakfast, she regularly went out into the city, to see and teach some women in their houses, occasionally accompanied by my wife.

As a rule the afternoons were filled up by her with the study of the language, reading and writing, etc. In her religious opinions she was a warm Churchwoman, belonging to the 鈥楨vangelical鈥?school of thought.

The other day my thought on awakening was so very odd, that it made an impression by its very strangeness. I could not imagine what could have put it into my head, and you will smile when you read it. 鈥淭he snuffers were of gold!鈥?I have not so much as seen snuffers since I came to India.... Why on earth should my waking thought be of them? 鈥淲ell,鈥?considered I, 鈥渟nuffers are worthy of mention in the Bible; and those in the Temple were of gold. What can I make out of this thought?鈥?
