Excerpt from Dorothy GreyWhen Dorothy was a little more than nine years old, Miss Yate, a girl herself not yet twenty, was engaged to teach the Widdrington children. Extracts from her diary tell us some thing of the child, whose much-loved companion she was for five years. Miss Yate writes I have heard it said that she was cold and reserved, if so these phases were not for me. She made no secret Of her regret at holidays, and always had such a nice home-like welcome for me.' This governess was never forgotten. She went to Australia and married, but Dorothy continued all through her life to write to her.Miss Yate describes her as a most beautiful child, with an unusual dignity of manner. Even as a child she knew how to keep anyone she chose at a distance.At first she struck her governess as having too great a sense of her own importance, but it was not long before she came to think her almost too forgetful of her own self in her consideration for others.' She warmly supported the gover ness in her efforts to make the schoolroom life punctual and orderly, and might be seen stuffing one child into a coat, finding another's gloves, and getting a third to lace his boots.'About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
