CHAPTER XI
THE EARLY NINETEENTH CENTURY

with delight over Waverley, by an unknown writer ; for Scott, no one knows just why, did not wish to be known as its author. Story after story followed,-one, two, even three, in a single year. " Walter Scott is the only man in the land who could write them," was the general belief ; but the secret was kept for some time.
Scott was happy in his home. Abbotsford was the very hearthstone of Scotland for a joyous hospitality. Great folk and little folk, rich and poor, lords and ladies, scientific men, artists, authors, admirers from across the sea, old school friends, relatives even to the twentieth degree-they were all welcomed to Abbotsford. Sir Walter-for George IV had made him a baronet-usually worked three or four hours before breakfast, which was between nine and ten, and perhaps two hours afterwards ; but when noon had come, he was ready for any kind of amusement, provided it was out of doors,-a long walk or ride with his dogs, hunting or fishing, or whatever might suggest itself.
It is a pity that this happy life should have been clouded ; but in 1826 the publishers with whom
Scott was connected failed. The romancer might easily have freed himself from all claims ; but instead he quietly set to work to pay with his pen the 130,000 pounds that was due. Novels, histories, a nine-volume life of Bonaparte, editorial work, translations, were undertaken in rapid succession. Paralysis attacked him ; still he struggled on. In 18 31 the government lent him a frigate to carry him to Italy for rest and change.
