The Atlantic Monthly, Vol. 29 free pdf Excerpt from The Atlantic Monthly, Vol. 29: A Magazine of Literature, Science, Art, and Politics Lady Wentworth. A pail of water, dripping, through the street, And bathing, as she went, her naked feet. It was a pretty picture, full of grace, -The slender form, the delicate, thin face-The swaying motion, as she hurried by-The shining feet, the laughter in her eye, That o'er her face in ripples gleamed and glanced, As in her pail the shifting sunbeam danced: And with uncommon feelings of delightThe Earl of Halifax beheld the sight.Not so Dame Stavers, for he heard her sayThese words, or thought he did, as plain as day: "O Martha Hilton! Fie !how dare you goAbout the town half dressed, and looking so!"At which the gypsy laughed, and straight replied: "No matter how I look- I yet shall rideIn my own chariot, ma am. And on the childThe Earl of Halifax benignly smiled, As with her heavy burden she passed on, Looked back, then turned the corner, and was gone. What next, upon that memorable day, Drew his august attention was a gayAnd brilliant equipage, that flashed and spun, The silver harness glittering in the sun, Outriders with red jackets, lithe and lank, Pounding the saddles as they rose and sank, While all alone within the chariot satA portly person with three-cornered hat, A crimson velvet coat, head high in air, Gold-headed cane, and nicely powdered hair, And diamond buckles sparkling at his knees, Dignified, stately, florid, much at ease.Onward the pageant swept, and as it passedFair Mistress Stavers courtesied low and fast-For this was Governor Wentworth, driving downTo Little Harbor, just beyond the town, Where his Great House stood looking out to sea, -A goodly place, where it was good to be. It was a pleasant mansion, an abodeNear and yet hidden from the great highroad, Sequestered among trees, a noble pile, Baronial and colonial in its style-Gables and dormer-windows everywhere, And stacks of chimneys rising high in air, -Pandaesan pipes, on which all winds that blewMade mournful music the whole winter through.Within, unwonted splendors met the eye, -Panels, and floors of oak, and tapestry-Carved chimney-pieces, where on brazen dogsRevelled and roared the Christmas fires of logs- About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
