When he had reported on Sarah's visit, which he did very fully, Chad answered his question with perfect candour. "I positively referred her to you told her she must absolutely see you. This was last night, and it all took place in ten minutes. It was our first free talk really the first time she had tackled me.

The bounty of her well-spring of kindness was in it under the candour and the simplicity; it was one of those least of little things which are enough. Arnold smiled back at her, and she saw recognition leap through the armour-plate of his ecclesiasticism.

But errors of judgment, in circumstances so unprecedented, cannot be censured consistently with candour, through we may venture to mark them as a discouragement to imitation; for if any nation should yet be menaced by the revolutionary scourge, let it beware of seeking external redress by a temporary abandonment of its interests to the madness of systemists, or the rapine of needy adventurers.

Lucie of Pasean came back to my memory; I recollected how deeply I had repented the injury I had done in neglecting a sweet flower, which another man, and a less worthy one, had hastened to pluck; I felt myself near a lamb which would perhaps become the prey of some greedy wolf; and she, with her noble feelings, her careful education, and a candour which an impure breath would perhaps destroy for ever, was surely not destined for a lot of shame.

To the ease and cordiality of his happy address, he added the seemingly careless candour so often mistaken for honesty; while, as there was nothing showy or brilliant in his abilities or oratory nothing that aspired far above the pretensions of others, and aroused envy by mortifying self-love he created but little jealousy even amongst the rivals before whom he obtained precedence.

I mean, that whether you like or not what I send you, you will do so from knowledge and in the candour which knowledge brings.

I was much struck to-day by the candour and respect with which he spoke of John Bright, whose name came incidentally into our conversation. He seemed to feel personally annoyed and hurt as an Irishman, that Irishmen should permit themselves to revile and abuse Mr.

O Ferdinand! what anxiety can you withhold like that you have occasioned me?
