CHAPTER I
PRIVATE LETTERS 1838 - 1839

On Christmas Day I dined in Gt. Bedford Street.(1) Was it requisite to tell me to drink your health? Unless indeed you knew it would be a pleasure the more for making it an act of obedience. Fred (2) has come sometimes to visit me in the evening. You will be delighted, on your return, to find him so improved. He is extremely amiable as well as clever, and is only in want of occupation. I am convinced he will be distinguished, and particularly if his profession should be the army. The Admiral is looking well. When he mentions you it is always with delight. Why cannot he be perfectly contented (I asked him the question) in the society of which you form a part, without a view of what is equally inconsistent with his habits and his age. He is playing the very worst and most hazardous game of ecayte, but I hope and believe he will rise from the table before he has lost anything more.
However we old people, it seems, have not half your prudence and judgment. Yet Paris, I am afraid, will now rob the Isle of Wight of the glory it acquired last summer, and steal away a few of the roses you gathered on that coast. I heard the Duchess of Devonshire say that nothing was so good as an hour's repose (nap, I think, was the true word) before dressing

1 Where Miss Paynter's mother was living.
2 Miss Paynter's brother, afterwards an officer in the Indian army. He was present with his regiment, the 31st Bengal Infantry, at the battle of Maharajpur.
