"Say, fella, you'll find what you're lookin' for at the Hotel Madagascar." Chapter 7 鈥楳r. Clark told us the other evening that he had had an hour鈥檚 interview with a Brahmin, who has come from beyond Benares. This man鈥檚 views remind one of the Brahmo Somaj; but God grant that this Hindu may find more light than those Hindu Unitarians ever found. He is a man of great courage; he has flung aside the prejudices of his caste; he vehemently opposes idol-worship, and will readily eat with Christians. One of his special difficulties in regard to our faith is, I believe, the difficulty of reconciling God鈥檚 justice with the punishment of the Innocent. The Brahmin is a gifted, eloquent man, and many go to hear him. "Think of her presiding over a den like this! I'll give her a sunnier prospect. But he must have loved her well! I'll credit him with that." 成年美女黄网站色大全 鈥業 have been reading about our poor friend, the first of the Blacks, to-day; and it appears that his character was very fairly drawn by Miss Martineau. I was glad to know a little about the after doings in Hayti, and find that Dessalines鈥攖hat fierce fellow, husband of Theresa鈥攚as made first Emperor, and killed in about two years. He was a great savage, but his wife an amiable lady. Then came King Henri I.鈥攐ur friend Christopher the Cook鈥攚ho was king at the time that my informant wrote, that is to say, in 1819. A famous king he seems to be, or have been, with a good palace, standing army of 25,000 men kept in strict discipline, a hereditary aristocracy鈥攁ll of the colour of coal鈥攁nd ecclesiastical establishment. He was considered in person very much like King George III.鈥攂arring complexion, I suppose鈥攁nd, in short, that part of Hayti which owned him for king seemed in a very flourishing condition in 1819. Well-built Piazzas, lofty Pillasters; Celeste merely shrugged. 鈥業t is a curious thing, dear Laura, that kind of instinct which one acquires in India! I have often and often thought on the subject. One feels as if one belonged to such a lordly race. It is that odd kind of impression upon one that, though one may personally be weak as water, one forms a part of a mysterious power. There is a kind of instinctive persuasion that neither man nor beast would dare to attack one,鈥攅xcept perhaps a vicious horse. One travels by night, without the slightest protection, surrounded by half-clad, ignorant semi-savages; one never dreams of fearing them. One takes one鈥檚 early walk in a lonely place, where the cheetah or snake may lurk, without the smallest alarm. They would not surely attack one of the English!...鈥? Charles. The brandy must have got into my head.
