We see that Hilda must have been a most remarkable woman for her times, instilling into those around her a passion for learning as well as right-living, for despite the fact that they worked and prayed in rude wooden buildings, with walls formed, most probably, of split tree-trunks, after the fashion of the church at Greenstead in Essex, we find the institution producing, among others, such men as Bosa and John, both Bishops of York, and such a poet as Caadmon.

Este descubrimiento no dejaba de inquietarla algo, sobre todo teniendo en cuenta las ruidosas carcajadas que la noche anterior habia creido percibir a lo lejos y en uno de los angulos de la plaza, cuando cerraba el balcon y despedia a su amante; pero al mirar aparecer entre las filas de los combatientes, que pasaban por debajo del estrado lanzando chispas de fuego de sus brillantes armaduras, y envueltos en una nube de polvo, los pendones reunidos de las casas de Carrillo y Sandoval; al ver la significativa sonrisa que al saludar a la reina le dirigieron los dos antiguos rivales que cabalgaban juntos, todo lo adivino, y la purpura de la vergueenza enrojecio su frente, y brillo en sus ojos una lagrima de despecho.

Junto a aquella verja, de pie, envueltos en sus capas de color galoneadas de oro, dejando entrever con estudiado descuido las encomiendas rojas y verdes, en la una mano el fieltro, cuyas plumas besaban los tapices, la otra sobre los brunidos gavilanes del estoque o acariciando el pomo del cincelado punal, los caballaros veinticuatros, con gran parte de lo mejor de la nobleza sevillana, parecian formar un muro, destinado a defender a sus hijas y sus esposas del contacto de la plebe.

Will you believe that the language poured into my pained and wounded and offended but very helpless ears, day after day, by official friends, is to the effect that the country is apathetic on Reform, and that therefore it should not be proceeded with; that Reform is a measure calculated to produce excitement, conflict, disturbance in the country, and therefore it should not be proceeded with; that John having given a pledge was bound, "oh yes, certainly," to redeem it, and that all the world will agree he has most nobly redeemed it, if he lets his Bill fall on the floor of the House of Commons to-morrow, never to be picked up again; that if he proceeds with it, he will be universally reproached for allowing personal hostility to Lord Palmerston to influence him to the injury of the country; that his character is so high that if he gave it up, it would be utterly impossible for any creature to raise a doubt of his sincerity in bringing it forward; that dissolution or resignation are revolution and ruin and disgrace; that the caballers are wrong, quite wrong, but that we must look at the general question and the possible results (a hackneyed expression which may sound wise but of which I too well know the drift); that it may often be very honourable to abandon friends and supporters with whom we agree, to conciliate the shabbies with whom we differ; that, of course, they would be too happy to be out of office, but people must not consult their own wishes; that I must be aware that Lord John is supposed sometimes to be a little obstinate, etc.
