ch. ii] George Marshall 39 Court below. But, your Grace, began the horrified Counsel. . . . I affirm it, with costs, interrupted his Grace. I fear it will hardly do to follow this summary and convenient course here. Among his pupils in this early stage of his tutorial life was one who has lately passed away, and whose memory will long be affectionately cherished by very many Christ Church men, the saintly George Marshall, afterwards Censor of Christ Church, and in later life Rector of Milton. Marshall had just come up from Charterhouse, and to Liddells high delight had won a college exhibition, the prelude, in his case, to a distinguished academical career. He was among the first fruits of Saunders work at Charterhouse. I hope and trust he will not fall off under my care. He is a well-disposed, modest, clever lad, and it would grieve me, I am sure, quite as much as it could his nearest and dearest friends, to see him go wrong. However, I hope that, humanly speaking, there is very little chance of it. But I cannot help feeling, more and more, how heavy a responsibility rests upon me ; while, from the nature of the place, one has much less power of interfering with …

ch. xv] Increase of Numbers Prince Albert, to whom Mr. Liddell was domestic Chaplain, was present at a fourth special representa- tion of this Play, and afterwards at that of 1851. The school increased in numbers and was in a fair way of recovering its old connexion. Many, some of high rank, several of great distinction, again sent sons to their old school. It was seen that Mr. Liddell, though not an Old Westminster, was in the best sense of the term a Public School man ; and that, while he would prune unsparingly erratic and mischievous growths, he would leave untouched the free, manly, and honourable stock of the Public School spirit. He was too wise a man to sacrifice a use because of an abuse. The tide continued for some time steadily to rise; but counteracting forces came gradually into play. It is worthy of the great position formerly occupied by the school that the checks to its prosperity should be closely connected with the great movements of national thought. One of these, which is still in full force, had already made itself felt in Reform, Catholic Emanci- pation, and Free Trade. The Spirit of the Age, which with the March of Intellect was a phrase much in vogue at that time, was emphatically one of inquiry. That a thing had been was no pre- sumption that it should …

48 Life at Christ Church [CH. II time it was not customary for the Tutors to see their pupils of an evening; but Liddell did it, at least with me, and would give me special help then in any books in which he thought me behind- hand. The example which he himself set of industry was evidenced by the way in which we used to find him working at his Lexicon. In the interval between one Lecture and another he would be found standing at his desk over his interleaved copy of the first edition, correcting and amending it. And that standing desk recalls his advice which I have ever since treasured both in reading and in writing: Keep your books open, ready to be returned to when you come back to work.' In the year 1838 he experienced a very heavy sorrow, the first great bereavement of his life, in the unexpected death of his sister Harriett, at the age of eighteen. She was a singularly beautiful girl, and had already attracted the love of one of Liddells most intimate friends, Stephen Denison, who has been before mentioned as a member of the Tribes5 club, and had, like his brother, attained high distinc- tion at Oxford. Harnett Liddell had shown symptoms of delicacy in the winter of 1837-8, but nothing serious was apprehended; and though, during the early spring, she had been ailing and weak, plans were being formed and discussed for a …
