δούλη to please the dirty greed of the wretched landlord of these parts. (Arthur has something to say about goings on in the Bocche just now.) I doubt not that Gladstone has done all that could be done as things go; but I shall not believe in the deliverance of Arta or Larissa till I see it.

. . . I can believe that your diocesan book cost you more trouble than a much greater thing2. Jones of Bradford, I think, is pretty sure to work well within his own beat; though I found that he thought that the barbara loquela with which the Frankish bishop bothered the West-Saxon king (which was it?) was French. That is a most important passage. I understand it thus. A Latin-speaking man would either have spoken by an interpreter or else set to work and really learned English. But the Frank and the West-Saxon could just understand one another; a most unpleasant form of discourse, and of which the king was naturally pertaesus3.


TO THE REV. N. PINDER.

Ragusa, Trinity Monday, 1881.

I certainly ought to be at Oxford to-day, as to-day it is (by reckoning of Trinity Mondays) just forty years since I was elected scholar, 1841-1881: a good deal has happened in that time. Still here I am. I might almost say, in the 'bussom of my family,' as besides our two selves, here are not only Margaret and Arthur, but Helen and Florence.

Agilbert, a Frank by birth, was made Bishop of the West-Saxons in A.D. 650, and administered the diocese for ten years, but the king Kenwalch, who knew not any language but his own Saxon, became pertaesus barbarae loquelae, 'very weary of the strange dialect, which the Bishop spoke, and supplanted him by Wini, a native. Bede iii. 7. Agilbert, however, must surely have understood Latin, for, Bede says, he had spent a considerable time in. Ireland for the sake of studying the Holy Scriptures.
