Excerpt from The Marriage of Loti (Rarahu)Loti was baptized on the 25th of January, 1872, at the age of twenty-two years and eleven days. When the deed was done, it was about one in the afternoon by London and Paris time. On the other side, and the other way up of the terrestrial ball, in the gardens of Queen Pomare, where the event took place, it was near midnight. In Europe it was a cold and dismal winter's day. On the other side, in the queen's gardens, it was a calm, languorous, enervating summer's night.Five persons took part in this ceremony of baptism amidst mimosas and orange-trees, in a fervid and fragrant air, under a sky starry with southern constellations. These five were Ariitea, princess of the blood, Fai'mana and Teria, ladies in attendance on her majesty, Plunket and Loti, midshipmen in the royal navy of Great Britain. Loti, who had hitherto been known as Harry Grant, still kept that name in all official documents and on the books of the ship he was attached to; but that of Loti was commonly adopted among his friends.The ceremony was simple and performed without much speech or paraphernalia.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
