There's not a rock that fronts the sea, There's not an inland grove <em>oakley polarized hijinx sunglasses</em>, But has a tale to tell to me Of friendship or of love.

And so I keep, and ever shall, The best place in my heart for Scotland, Scotland, Scotland, The best place in my heart for Scotland!

The Duke of Bedford told Greville he was &quot;sure there was a battle between her and Melbourne... He is sure there was one about the men's sitting after dinner, for he heard her say to him rather angrily, 'it is a horrid custom-' but when the ladies left the room (he dined there) directions were given that the men should remain five minutes longer.&quot; Greville Memoirs, February 26, 1840 (unpublished).

She was in little danger. The tide of circumstance was flowing now with irresistible fullness towards a very different consummation. The seriousness of Albert, the claims of her children, her own inmost inclinations, and the movement of the whole surrounding world, combined to urge her forward along the narrow way of public and domestic duty. Her family steadily increased. Within eighteen months of the birth of the Prince of Wales the Princess Alice appeared, and a year later the Prince Alfred, and then the Princess Helena, and, two years afterwards <em><strong><font size="4">cheap oakleys</font></strong></em>, the Princess Louise; and still there were signs that the pretty row of royal infants was not complete. The parents, more and more involved in family cares and family happiness, found the pomp of Windsor galling, and longed for some more intimate and remote retreat. On the advice of Peel they purchased the estate of Osborne, in the Isle of Wight. Their skill and economy in financial matters had enabled them to lay aside a substantial sum of money; and they could afford, out of their savings, not merely to buy the property but to build a new house for themselves and to furnish it at a cost of L200,000.

Patriotic motives for acceptance of trust--Condition of college--The General's arrival at Lexington--He prepares for the removal of his family to that city--Advice to Robert Junior--Trip to &quot;Bremo&quot; on private canal-boat--Mrs. Lee's invalidism

About this time my father received from the Board of Trustees of Washington College a notification of his election to the presidency of that institution, at a meeting of the board held in Lexington, Virginia, on August 4, 1865.  The letter apprising him of the action was presented by Judge John W. Brockenborough, rector of the college. This was a complete surprise to my father.  He had already been offered the vice-chancellorship of the &quot;University of the South,&quot; at Sewanee, Tennessee, but declined it on the ground that it was denominational <em><strong>oakley radar pitch sunglasses</strong></em>, and to some suggestions that he should connect himself with the University of Virginia he objected because it was a State institution.

Washington College had started as an academy in 1749.  It was the first classical school opened in the Valley of Virginia.  After a struggle of many years, under a succession of principals and with several changes of site, it at length acquired such a reputation as to attract the attention of General Washington.  He gave it a handsome endowment, and the institution changed its name from &quot;Liberty Hall Academy&quot; to Washington College.  In the summer of 1865, the college, through the calamities of civil war, had reached the lowest point of depression it had ever known.  Its buildings, library, and apparatus had suffered from the sack and plunder of hostile soldiery.  Its invested funds, owing to the general impoverishment throughout the land, were for the time being rendered unproductive and their ultimate value was most uncertain.  Four professors still remained on duty <em><strong>oakley polarized radar range sunglasses gray</strong></em>, and there were about forty students, mainly from the country around Lexington.  It was not a State institution, nor confined to any one religious denomination, so two objections which might have been made by my father were removed.  But the college in later years had only a local reputation.  It was very poor, indifferently equipped with buildings, and with no means in sight to improve its condition.
