PART III - THE PAST
CHAPTER IX - MR. AND MRS. ABBEY'S - DIFFICULTIES

guard her against them. Letters like the following could not be indefinitely allowed to arrive :

` MY DEAR FANNY
` I called on Mr. Abbey in the beginning of last week, when he seemed averse to letting you come again from having heard that you had been to other places besides Well Walk. I do not mean to say you did wrongly in speaking of it, for there should rightly be no objection to such things : but you know with what People we are obliged in the course of Childhood to associate, whose conduct forces us into duplicity and falsehood to them. . . . Perhaps I am talking too deeply for you : if you do not know, you will understand what I mean in thecourse of a few years. I think poor Tom is a little Better, he sends his love to you. I shall call on Mr. Abbey to-morrow : when I hope to settle when to see you again. Mrs. Dilke is expected home in a day or two. She will be pleased, I am sure, with your present. I will try for permission for you to remain all Night should Mrs. D. return in time.
` Your affectionate brother
` JOHN.'

At Bedhampton I was unwell and did not go out of the Garden Gate but twice or thrice during the fortnight I was there -Since I came back I have been taking care of myself-I have been obliged to do so, and am now in hopes that by this care I shall get rid of a sore throat which has haunted me at intervals nearly a twelvemonth.- I always had a presentiment of not being able to succeed in persuading Mr. Abbey to let you remain longer at School-I am very sorry that he will not
