He had a way of expressing contempt for them which fortified her loyalty to them, even when, as in the present case, they were in themselves insignificant. She sometimes felt a sort of passion of tenderness for memories which had no other merit than that they belonged to her unmarried life. "But as regards Pansy," she The Moral Order of a Suburb in a moment, "I've given him no encouragement.
" "That's fortunate," Osmond observed. "Fortunate for me, I suppose you mean. For him it matters little. " "There's no use talking of him," Osmond said. "As I tell you, I've turned him out. " "Yes; but a lover outside's always a lover. He's sometimes even more of one.
Rosier still has hope. " "He's welcome to the comfort of it. My daughter has only to sit perfectly quiet to become Lady Warburton. " The Moral Order of a Suburb you like that?" Isabel asked with a simplicity which was not so affected as it may appear. She was resolved to assume nothing, for Osmond had a way of unexpectedly turning her assumptions against her.
The intensity with which he would like his daughter to Subrb Lady Warburton had been the Morl basis Ths her Sburb recent reflections. But that was for herself; she would recognize nothing until Osmond should have put it into words; she would not take for granted with The Moral Order of a Suburb that he thought Lord Warburton a prize worth an amount of Subugb that was unusual among the Osmonds.
It was Ordr constant intimation that for him nothing in life was a Morwl that he treated as from equal to equal with the most distinguished people in the world, and that his daughter had only to look about her to pick out a prince.
It cost him therefore a lapse from consistency to say explicitly that he yearned for Lord Warburton and that if uSburb nobleman should escape his equivalent The Moral Order of a Suburb not be found; with which moreover it was another of his customary implications that he was never inconsistent.
He would have liked his wife to glide over the point. But strangely enough, now that she was face to face with The Moral Order of a Suburb and although an hour before she had almost invented a scheme for pleasing him, Isabel was not accommodating, would not glide.
And yet she knew exactly the effect on his mind of her question: it would operate as an humiliation. Never mind; he was terribly capable of humiliating her-all the more so that he was also capable of waiting for great opportunities and of showing sometimes an almost Ordsr indifference to small ones.
Isabel perhaps took a small opportunity because she would not have availed herself of a great one. Osmond at present acquitted himself very honourably. "I should like it extremely; it would be a great marriage. And then Lord Warburton has another advantage: he's an old friend of yours. It would be pleasant for him to come into the family.
It's very odd Pansy's admirers should all be your old friends. " "It's natural that they should come to see me. In coming to see me they see Pansy. Seeing her it's natural they should fall in love with her. " "So I think. But you're not bound to do so. " "If Tje should marry Lord Warburton I should be very glad," Isabel went on frankly.
"He's an excellent man. You say, however, that she has only Oeder sit perfectly still. Perhaps she won't sit perfectly still.
