Colonel Whistler, after holding the paper out at the utmost stretch of his arm, solemnly puts on a pair of gold spectacles and examines it. Not Methodism, but perhaps鈥擬ethodists. But it was not of Methodism that I had it on my mind to speak to you now. Of course we should have to pay all his expenses. But I think he would be amusing, and perhaps useful. He talks French very well, and is lively and good-tempered. Well, ma'am, plenty of great men have been poor scholars. Dean Swift was a sizar. How did you get on with Castalia at dinner? asked my lady. Because I have been told by those whose words I believe, that you are gifted with a clear and strong judgment, as well as with all qualities that win love. 本 Borelli was a versatile genius. Born in 1608, he was practically contemporary with Francesco Lana, and there is evidence that he either knew or was in correspondence with many prominent members of the Royal Society of Great Britain, more especially with John Collins, Dr Wallis, and Henry Oldenburgh, the then Secretary of the Society. He was author of a long list of scientific essays, two of which only are responsible for his fame, viz., Theorice Medic?arum Planetarum, published in Florence, and the better known posthumous De Motu Animalium. The first of these two is an astronomical study in which Borelli gives evidence of an instinctive knowledge of gravitation, though no definite expression is given of this. The second work, De Motu Animalium, deals with the mechanical action of the limbs of birds and animals and with a theory of the action of the internal organs. A section of the first part of this work, called De Volatu, is a study of bird flight; it is quite independent of Da Vinci鈥檚 earlier22 work, which had been forgotten and remained unnoticed until near on the beginning of practical flight. 鈥業t seems curious to look back to the birthday sixty-one years ago, when sweet Mother called me 鈥渉er ten-years old.鈥?Do you remember my funny little cards of invitation to a feast of liquorice-wine,鈥攚ith possibly something else,鈥? Tell him to come at half-past ten, returned Castalia. For the past 10 years she has been married to Paul Mejia, a former dancer who is today the artistic director and choreographer for the Ballet de Guatemala, one of Latin America's major companies. Although the couple must undergo some long separations, their marriage is a happy one. Spending time alone at her Lincoln Center area apartment does not bother Suzanne. With a steady diet of exercise classes, rehearsals and performances, and her nine pets (eight cats and a dog), Suzanne has little time to be lonely. I do not see how I can interfere. I should, in fact, be taking an unjustifiable liberty, and鈥擬r. Errington is going away. They will both forget all about this boy-and-girl nonsense, if people have the wisdom to let it alone.
