But the fate’s there, depend on it!”圣诞童话剧是一年的高潮,但艾伦却不怎么感兴趣。艾伦后来回忆说,小时候我觉得这剧总是没完没了,我不知道它是周期性上演的。后来,他们回到沉闷的巴斯顿住宅,艾伦喜欢上了研究地图。他过生日时,要了一个地图作礼物,并且马上钻研了一遍。他还喜欢药方,把治疗荨麻疹的酸模合剂的成分抄下来。他有一本书,是一小本自然科学笔记,这是他母亲读的《天路历程》的补充资料。有一次,艾赛儿在给他讲书时,偷懒跳过了一篇很长的理论论文,这令艾伦生气地喊叫「你全给搞糟了!」然后跑回了卧室。不管是谁,一旦答应了艾伦的要求,就必须坚持到底,不能变卦也不能骗他。幼儿园的南尼,也发现了这一点,在跟艾伦玩的时候:‘The luncheon was preceded by the reading by one of the Batala non-Christian magnates of an address, emblazoned with gold; other Batala folk, some in very grand dresses, standing in line. The Lieutenant-Governor gave a reply in English, which I doubt whether many understood. Then we went to our collation; fifteen sat down.... You should have seen our servant ——; he was quite magnificent. He had on such a gold-adorned pagri that it might have graced the head of a rajah, and had as much gold on his dress. I did not think that he looked like a Missionary’s servant, but we left him to enjoy his splendour. I had thought, darling, whether I should wear your silk dress:[106] but no, thought I; in my Batala I will not wear silken attire; so I wore my Laura’s purple, which was just the thing, sober and handsome. The collation went over nicely; we could not linger at it long, and no one could drink too much, as water was our beverage. After seeing the view from the roof, we started in the borrowed carriages for the Church. The first carriage, which held the Aitchesons, Mera Bhatija, and myself, had highly conservative horses, decidedly opposed to progress. No use coaxing and urging them; the “nat-khats” would not go. The only thing was to get out and go into another carriage.云起龙骧
