Whose Merits were almost too strong for me? All about the town of pink plaster, in the dust of the roads and fields, are an endless number of dead temples鈥攖emples of every size and of every period; and all deserted, all empty; even those that are uninjured look like ruins. Here, says another, is the fertile Womb, which was this: It seems queer for me to be writing letters at all--I've never In this Peshawur the houses are crowded along narrow, crooked alleys, and there is but one rather wider street of shops, which here already have a quite[Pg 242] Persian character, having for sale only the products of Cabul or Bokhara. The balconies, the shutters, the verandahs and galleries are of wood inlaid in patterns like spider-net. The timbers are so slight that they would seem quite useless and too fragile to last; and yet they are amazingly strong, and alone remain in place, amid heaps of stones, in houses that have fallen into ruin. In the streets, the contrast is strange, of tiny houses with the Afghans, all over six feet high, superb men wearing heavy dhotis of light colours faded to white, still showing in the shadow of the folds a greenish-blue tinge of dead turquoise. Solemn and slow, or motionless in statuesque attitudes while they converse in few words, and never gesticulate, they are very fine, with a fierce beauty; their large, open eyes are too black, and their smile quite distressingly white in faces where the muscles look stiff-set. Even the children, in pale-hued silk shirts, are melancholy, languid, spiritless, but very droll, too, in their little pointed caps covered with gold braid, and the finery of endless metal necklaces, and bangles on their ankles and arms. 国内自拍偷拍_自拍一区综合图区_亚洲图片另类欧美 鈥楢 poor woman came the other day to see us, and brought us some common yellow flowers. I did not at all admire them, but I thought it only courteous to accept so small a present graciously. Miss Swainson did not like to accept the flowers鈥擨 did not know why....[258] She told me afterwards that she was afraid they were brought as religious offerings,鈥攆lowers are what are used for such offerings,鈥攁nd she had heard repeatedly that we are 鈥榙evi.鈥橻63] What gross, fearful ignorance! I heard on good authority that in one place in India, not the Panjab, offerings are actually made to a dead European, who was a special object of dread to the Natives, and whom they therefore wish to propitiate as a kind of demon! Do not the poor, deluded creatures want teachers? I find the women in general very gentle and courteous, and quite willing to listen when they are spoken to on the subject of religion. With the men鈥攅xcept of course the servants鈥攚e have little to do.鈥? In the August of 1855 she had the pleasure of going with her brother, Mr. St. George Tucker, to the great French Exhibition at Paris. This was the celebrated occasion of the Queen鈥檚 visit to Napoleon, after the close of the Crimean War; and Paris was thronged. So[104] full was the place that rooms in Paris itself were not to be had, and they went to an hotel in Versailles, occupying apartments which had once been occupied by Louis Napoleon. Charlotte鈥檚 warlike enthusiasm showed itself in the fact that she was willing to pay twenty-five francs apiece for seats at the Champs de Mars, where they might witness the review of 45,000 French troops. When Her Majesty had quitted Paris, it became possible to obtain rooms at the H?tel Bristol. ???At Depth of Winter in a Stable born; 鈥業 have looked on the most glorious scene, I believe, that is to be seen on this planet. How can I attempt to describe Niagara? When I gaze on what is called 鈥淭he American Fall,鈥?I ask myself a dozen times, 鈥淚s it possible that there can be anything more beautiful?鈥?... though I have only to turn my head a little to behold the 鈥淗orse-Shoe Fall,鈥?which is even more gloriously beautiful. The American Fall would make in itself twenty or thirty cascades that would delight us in England. O the sparkling rush of diamonds,鈥攖he white misty foam breaking on the picturesque rocks beneath,鈥攖he accessories so beautiful,鈥攖he cloud-like veil so transparently lovely! I suspect that my letters have been very full of Master Jervie for a
