"Let me see what was I talkin' about? Oh, yes Ronald Macdonald's fine manners.

Sir John Macdonald never received this letter. It was written in South Africa in May, and Sir John died on June 6. Sir John Macdonald's resemblance to Lord Beaconsfield has often been remarked. That it must have been striking is evident from Sir Charles Dilke's comment: The first time I saw Sir John Macdonald was shortly after Lord Beaconsfield's death and as the clock struck midnight.

"I will, sir. But I owe it to you to tell you that the adventure is put an end to. I have been to Macdonald's and told him, speaking as Rollo's mother, of the danger my son was in; and Macdonald will take care that no smuggling vessel reaches this coast to-night or in future." "Go instantly!" exclaimed Mr Ruthven, and, seeing Lady Carse's countenance, Annie was glad to hasten out of her reach.

Then, without waiting to organize the pursuit, he forthwith returned to Dresden, either because, as some say, the rains of the previous days had struck a chill to his system, or as Marmont, with more reason, asserts, because of his concern at the news of Macdonald's disaster on the Katzbach.

He successively and successfully discharged the duties of drill-instructor, pay-sergeant, and other non-commissioned offices, and held the rank of colour-sergeant at the commencement of the Afghan campaign, wherein he repeatedly so greatly distinguished himself. "Macdonald's first engagement with an enemy was at Jagi Thanni.

"Them damn rustlers of Macdonald's are up and standin' agin us, and I tell you I want troopers, and I want 'em on the spot!" Colonel Landcraft swallowed like an eagle gorging a fish.

It took him some little time to suppress his flooding emotions, and his voice trembled even when he ventured to trust himself to speak.
