All the Year Round, Vol. 3 free pdf Excerpt from All the Year Round, Vol. 3 During the first three weeks of his stay at Naples, Sir John Gale appeared to be better than he had been for a long time previous. He did not pay many visits, but he received a considerable number of guests twice a week. The guests were chiefly gentlemen, but a few ladies came also. Veronica's magnificent toilets were criticised by the women, and her striking beauty discussed by the men. She received homage and flattery enough to satisfy even her appetite for such tribute. She drove out daily in an elegant equipage. She had servants at her command. Her vanity and indolence were ministered to as assiduously as though she had been tho most pampered sultana who ever dyed her fingers with henna. But although these things did afford her real delight at moments, they utterly failed to make her happy. A ceaseless under-current of anxiety ran through her life. She passed hours of suffering from unspeakable apprehension of evils to come. Her pain of mind spurred her on to pursue the one object she had in view, with a courage and energy which she wondered at herself. The prospect of humiliation, exposure, and contempt, in lien of homage, flattery, and envy, was unbearable. It roused in her a passion of terror: and passion is powerful. The strange indisposition which had so suddenly seized Sir John at the Villa Chiari, had suggested to her the thought that he might die suddenly. For a time, that anxiety was appeased by the improvement in his health after they first reached Naples: it was appeased, but still it lived. Her feelings towards him underwent strange revulsions. Sometimes she told herself that she hated him with all her heart- at other times she clung to him from the sheer necessity of having some human creature to cling to. She was unable to live solitarily self-sustained, and there were moments when she would rather have been reviled in anger than made to feel that she was an object of indifference. But, to Sir John at least, she was not the latter. She occupied more of his thoughts than she was aware of. He had not forgotten the look of intelligence he had seen on its way from Veronica's eyes to Barletti's. He often thought of it: especially as he got better, and had leisure to direct some of his private meditations towards other objects than himself. When he thought of that look, Sir John was jealous: jealous not so much with the jealousy of Love, as with the jealousy of Power. He would have been jealous of Paul, if he had suspected him of diverting any of the attentions due to his master, into another channel. It was not displeasing to Sir John that Barletti should admire Veronica. Sir John liked that everything belonging to him should be admired. It amused him to see Veronica play off her pretty airs on the prince, and treat him with, an alternation of condescending smiles, and stares of cold hauteur. But that look he had intercepted, implied no playing off of pretty airs: it expressed a confidential understanding, appeal, and reliance. Veronica had been so perfectly prudent, that it was difficult for Sir John to conjecture what opportunity there could have been for the establishment of anything like a confidence between her and Barletti.
