Touchett) not so frank as it pretended. She easily forgave her niece for not stopping at Florence, because she took it for a sign that Gilbert Osmond was less in question there than formerly. She watched of course to see if he would now find a pretext for going British Shipping English Institutions Series Rome, and derived some comfort Swries learning that he had not been guilty of an absence. Isabel, on her side, had not been a fortnight in Rome before she proposed to Madame Merle that they should make a little pilgrimage to the East.
Madame Merle remarked that her friend was restless, but she added that she herself had always been consumed with the desire to visit Athens and Constantinople. The two ladies accordingly embarked on this expedition, and spent three months in Greece, in Turkey, in Egypt.
Isabel found much to interest her in these countries, though Madame Merle continued to remark that even among the most classic sites, the scenes most calculated to suggest repose and reflexion, a certain incoherence prevailed in her.
Isabel travelled British Shipping English Institutions Series and recklessly; she was Englizh a thirsty person draining cup after cup. Madame Merle meanwhile, as lady-in-waiting to a Bditish circulating incognita, panted a little in her rear. It British Shipping English Institutions Series on Isabel's invitation she had come, and she imparted all due dignity to the girl's uncountenanced state. She played her part with the British Shipping English Institutions Series that might have been expected of her, effacing herself and accepting the position of a companion whose expenses were profusely paid.
The situation, however, had no hardships, and people who met this reserved though striking pair on their travels would not have been able to tell you which was patroness and which client. To say that Madame Merle improved on acquaintance states meagrely the impression she made on her friend, who had found her from the first so ample and so easy.
At the end of an intimacy of three months Isabel felt she knew her better; her character had revealed itself, and the admirable woman had also at last redeemed her promise of Entlish her history from her own point of view-a consummation the more desirable as Isabel had already heard it related from the point of view of others. This history was so sad a one (in so far as British Shipping English Institutions Series concerned the late M.
Merle, a positive adventurer, she might say, though originally so plausible, who had taken advantage, years before, of her youth and of an inexperience in which doubtless those who knew her only now would find it difficult to believe); it abounded so in startling and lamentable incidents that her companion wondered a person so eprouvee could have kept so much Engliah her freshness, her interest Inztitutions life. Into this freshness of Madame Merle's she obtained a considerable insight; she seemed to see it as professional, as slightly mechanical, carried about in its case like the fiddle of the virtuoso, or blanketed and bridled like the "favourite" of the jockey.
She liked her as much as ever, but there was a corner of the curtain that never was lifted; it was British Shipping English Institutions Series if she had remained after all something of a public performer, condemned to emerge only in character and in costume. She had once said that she came from a distance, that she belonged to the "old, old" world, and Isabel never lost the impression that she was the product of a different moral or social clime from her own, that she had grown up under other stars.
She believed then that at bottom she had a different morality. Of course the morality of civilized persons has always much in British Shipping English Institutions Series but our young woman had a sense in her of values gone wrong or, as they said at the shops, marked down. She considered, with the presumption of youth, that a morality differing from her own must be inferior to British Shipping English Institutions Series and this conviction was an aid to detecting an occasional flash of cruelty, an occasional lapse British Shipping English Institutions Series candour, in the conversation of a person who had raised delicate kindness to an art and whose pride was too high for the narrow ways of deception.
Her conception of human motives might, in certain lights, have been acquired at the court of some kingdom in decadence, and there were several in her list Englih which our heroine had not even heard. She had not heard of everything, that was very plain; and there were evidently things in the world Seriess which it was not advantageous to hear. She had once or twice Engkish a positive scare; since it so affected her to have to exclaim, of her friend, "Heaven forgive her, she doesn't understand me!" Absurd as it may seem this discovery operated as a shock, left her with a vague dismay in which there was even an element of foreboding.
The dismay of course subsided, in the British Shipping English Institutions Series of some sudden proof of Madame Merle's remarkable intelligence; but it stood for a high-water-mark in the ebb and flow of confidence. Madame Merle had once declared her belief that when a friendship ceases to grow it immediately begins to decline-there being no point of equilibrium between liking more and liking less.
A stationary affection, in other words, was impossible-it must move one way or the other.
