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

consent. I recommend you to keep up all that you know and to learn more by yourself, however little. The time will come when you will be more pleased with Life-look forward to that time, and though it may be a trifle be careful not to let the idle and retired Life you lead fix any awkward habit or behaviour on you-whether you sit or walk endeavour to let it be in a seemly and, if possible, a graceful manner. We have been very little together : but you have not the less been with me in thought. You have no one in the world besides me who would sacrifice anything for you-I feel myself the only Protector you have. In all your little troubles think of me with the thought that there is at least one person in England who, if he could, would help you out of them-I live in hopes of being able to make you happy-I should not perhaps write in this manner if it were not for the fear of not being able to see you often or long together. I am in hopes that Mr. Abbey will not object any more to your receiving a letter now and then from me. How unreasonable ! . . .
` Your affectionate brother
'JOHN.'

Though less coarse in tone than its predecessors, this letter was even more calculated to undermine authority. 0 mark the impudence of calling life at Walthamstow 'idle '-he who had never done a stroke of real work for years, had weakened his constitution by dissipation and drift, falling in love with his landlady's daughter, and had vainly tried, when it was too late, to continue his medical career and obtain a post as surgeon upon an East Indiaman ! The 'sore-throat ' of which he complained was the precursor of the usual hereditary trouble, its later developments proving fatal. Kindly Mr. and Mrs. Abbey were distressed, and, Fanny herself falling ill, called in the family practitioner to attend her. Yet they could not but feel that sickness had all along been used to claim illicit privileges and to undermine their authority as guardians, and that just as in the case of Tom so in the case of John there had been duplicity. In view of his departure abroad, John was permitted to write his sister as often as he wished, and almost his last letter to her contained the venomous sentence, ' In case my strength returns, I will do all in my power to extricate you from the Abbies.' He could not even spell.
