A Noble Life Tredition Classics
by Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

Overview -
Excerpt: ...after expressing his extreme surprise and regret, "but the winds of Edinburg are ruin to my weak lungs, which the air here suits so well. So I must prepare to quit pleasant Cairnforth, where I have received so much kindness, and which I have grown to regard almost like home-the nearest approach to home that in my sad, wandering life I ever knew." There was an unmistakable regret in the young man's tone which, in spite of his own trouble, went to the earl's good heart. "Why should you leave at all?" said he. "Why not remain here and await my return, which can not be long delayed-two months at most-even counting my slow traveling? I will give you something to do meanwhile: I will make you viceroy of Cairnforth during my absence-that is, under Miss Cardross, who alone knows all the parish affairs-and mine. Will you accept the office?" "Under Miss Cardross?" Captain Bruce laughed, but did not seem quite to relish it. However, he expressed much gratitude at having been thought worthy of the earl's confidence. "Don't be humble, my good cousin and friend. If I did not trust you, and like you, I should never think of asking you to stay. Mr. Cardross -Helen-what do you say to my plan"? Both gave a cordial assent, as was indeed certain. Nothing ill was known of Captain Bruce, and nothing noticed in him unlikeable, or unworthy of liking. And even as to his family, who wrote to him constantly, and whose letters he often showed, there had appeared sufficient evidence in their favor to counterbalance much of the suspicions against them, so that the earl was glad he had leaned to the charitable side in making his cousin welcome to Cairnforth; glad, too, that he could atone by warm confidence and extra kindness for what now seemed too long a neglect of those who were really his nearest kith and kin. Mr. Cardross also; any prejudices he had from his knowledge of the late earl's troubles with the Bruces were long ago dispersed. And Helen was too innocent...
