I deeply regret that I never knew my grandfather. Both he and his mother were thoroughly English, yet fairly cosmopolitan. Intelligence and learning were the breath of life to Frances Trollope. What girl, brought up in a country vicarage in England over a hundred years ago, where life was so placid and uneventful, usually studied Italian as she did and acquired a more than superficial knowledge of Dante, never an easy poet? When her spouse-to-be enquired of her how she spent her time, her reply was ‘Reading Dante and hemming sheets.’ (Linen ones in those days!)1
