PART III - THE PAST
CHAPTER X - MRS. HANNAH MORE

HANNAH MORE was the god other of y great-aunt. Her picture is before me as I write. I sit upon one of her chairs, the sloping grass outside is said to be imitated from her garden, and once I had a red mitten she knitted, but gave it away. The name of the picture is ' Mrs. Hannah More and favourite squirrel.' They too are seated-the old lady at a Chippendale table, the squirrel upon it. They face one another, they bend their necks with identical gesture, and the calm light of a hundred years ago flows in through square panes of glass upon the letter and the nut that they are opening. It must be Barley Wood, for she is very old-Barley Wood where she hoped to die, but her servants mishandled and betrayed her. ' I am driven, like Eve, out of Paradise,' she said, ' but, unlike Eve, not by angels.' It was Zachary Macaulay who rescued her, having discovered licentiousness in the kitchen, in which even Louisa was involved. Who was Louisa ? A trusted orphan. Who on earth was Zachary Macaulay ? Mr. R. C. Trevelyan's great-grandfather. Yes, here is the Hannah More of our tradition, fragile and philanthropic. The earlier Hannah, who quipped it with Garrick and scribbled it with Walpole-she is less to our taste.
Yet earlier and later were connected. Had it not been for Percy, a five-act tragedy in blank verse, I do not think she could have sat on that chair so calmly. She had received a certain amount of money from a gentleman who failed to marry her, but it was on the broader and more substantial basis of Percy that her fortunes really rested. it held the stage for years. Poetry assisted it ; when Mrs. Moutagu read The Bleeding Rock she exclaimed: ` Your "Rock" will stand unimpaired by ages,' nor was she wholly wrong. And when secular royalties decreased, Hannah turned to other themes, cautiously descending the social ladder in the process, but never losing touch with the booksellers. The success of Parley the Porter and other tracts
