The solicitude of the most affectionate ofmothers, and the care of the most attentive of nurses, did their best toinjure an excellent constitution. But Vivian was an only child, andthese exertions were therefore excusable. For the first five years ofhis life, with his curly locks and his fancy dress, he was the pride ofhis own and the envy of all neighbouring establishments- but, in processof time, the spirit of boyism began to develop itself, and Vivian notonly would brush his hair straight and rebel against his nurse, butactually insisted upon being--breeched! At this crisis it was discoveredthat he had been spoiled, and it was determined that he should be sentto school. Mr. Grey observed, also, that the child was nearly ten yearsold, and did not know his alphabet, and Mrs. Grey remarked that he wasgetting ugly. The fate of Vivian was decided.
