G. 1 Is thy f u. c like thy mothers, my fair child 1 The child of love, though born in bitterness And nurtured in convulsion. LONGMANS, GREEN, AND CO. 89 PATERNOSTER ROW, LONDON YORK AND BOMBAY 1905 TO LORD LYNDHURST. IN happier hours, when I first iptentioned to you the idea of this Work, it was my intention, while inscribing it with your name, to have entered into some details as to the principles which had guided me in its composition, and the feelings with which I had attempted to shadow forth, though as in a glass darkly, two of the most renowned and refined spirits that have adorned these our latter days. But now I will only express a hope that the time may come when, in these pages, you may find some relaxation from the cares, and some distraction from the sorrows, of existence, and that you will then receive this dedication as a record of my respect and niy affection. ADVERTISEMENT. This Work was first published in the year 1837. YBNE. TIA. CHAPTER I. SOME ten years before the revolt of our American colonies, there was situate in one of onr midland counties, on the borders of an extensive forest, an ancient hall that belonged to the Herberts, but. which, though ever well preserved, had not until that period been visited bj any member of the family, since the exile of the Stuarts. It was an edifice of considerable size, built of grey stone, much covered with ivy, and placed upon the last gentle elevation of a long ridge of hills, in the centre of a crescent of woods, that far over topped its clusters of tall chimneys and tore ted gables. Although the principal chambers were on the first story, you could nevertheless step forth from, their windowson a broad terrace, whence you descended into the gardens by a double flight of stone, steps, exactly in the middle of its length. These gardens were o f some extent, and filled with evergreen shrubberies of remarkable overgrowth, while occasionally turfy vistas, cut in the distant woods, came sloping down to the south, as if they opened to receive thu sunbeam that greeted the genial aspect of the mansion, The ground-floor was principally occupied by the hall itself, which was of great dimensions, hung round with many a family portrait and rural picture, furnished with long oaken seats covered with scarlet cushions, and ornamented with a parti coloured floor of alternate diamonds of black and white marble. From the centre of the roof of the mansion, B 2 VENETIA. which was always covered with pigeons, rose the clock tower of the chapel, surmounted by a vane and before the mansion itself was a large plot of grass, with a fountain in the centre, surrounded by a hedge of honeysuckle. This plot of grass was separated from an extensive park, that opened in front of the hall, by tall iron gates, on each of the pillars of which was a lion ram-pant supporting the escutcheon of the family. The deer wandered in this en closed and well-wooded demesne, and about a mile from the mansion, in a direct line with the iron - gates, was an old fashioned lodge, which marked the limit of the park, and from which you emerged into a fine avenue of limes bounded on botli sides by fields. At the termination of this avenue was a strong but simple gate, and a woodmans cottage and then spread before you a vast landscape of open, wild lands, which seemed on one side interminable, while on the, other the eye restedon the dark heights of the neighbour ing forest. This picturesque and secluded abode was the residence of Lady Annabel Herbert and her daughter, the young and beautiful Venetia, a child, at the time when our history commences, of very tender age. It was nearly seven years since Lady Annabel and her infant daughter had sought the retired shades of Cherbury, which they had never since quitted... VEBTETIA EARL OP BEACONSFIELD, K.
