London, 1S73.J The writer devotes much attention to the early life of tbe late King Ed- ward, and reveals in a series of letters the care bestowed on the edu- cation by the Queen and the Prince Consort. A long memorandum head- ed "Confidential: for the guidance of the gentlemen appointed to attend on- the Pi ince of Wales'' is printed, and states: "Tin- qualities which distinguish a I gentleman in society are: I LSI. Hi.; appearance, im deportment and dress, -nd. The character of his relations with and treatment of others. His desire and power to acquit himself creditably in conveisatioa or is the occupation of the society with which he mixes.

In >hort. upon laying solidly the inteliect'ul and mural foundations which, in the of his conscientious Prince passively resisted the high pressure of his father's system of ed- ucation. King Edward in' referring to those days, regretted the decision which iso- lated him during the crucial years of his .latter iboyhood from contact with his equals in age and intellectual at- tainments. It would not have been surprising if he had acquired no taste for -books, because, as .he often him- self complained, he was never given any liberty of choice, and every book came before him task. History, for instance, as he in later life ex- plained, was presented to him in its driest and most tabulated forrcu. Later, when he was at Edinburgh, an abridged -edition of Gibbon and Sehmitz's "History of the Middle Ages'-. appears to. have been offered him as suitable recreative reading. The late King often used TO say that his university life at Oxford and Cam- bridge had been a mistake, but he imputed'no iblame to the Prince Con- sort' for deciding that for the Prince of Wales to live a life of an ordinary undergraduate was impossible. When he was fifteen the Prince was given a moderate allowance, out of. which he had to provide his own hats and ties, and later on he was privil- eged to choose his own clothes, re- ceiving' a warning from the Queen not to wear "anything extravagant or At seventeen he was allotted rooms for his sole use, and the Queen and Prince Albert. an earnest let- ter, to A new sphere of life will open for you. in which you will have to be taught what to do and what not to do, a subject requiring study more im- portant than any in which you have hitherto been engaged. For it is a subject of study, and the most diffi- cult one of your life, how to become a good man and a thorough gentle- man. ._ In the influences that go to make a gentleman, the Prince's parents real- ized the importance of companionship and the value to a young man of be- ing thrown into a -set." This comes out very markedly in the con- fidential memorandum-addressed by Queen Victoria to the newly-appointed equerries of the prince, in which the following passage occurs: The Prfnce of Wales musr not only be a gentleman, but his rank and po- sition point him out as the first gen- tleman in the country; he can hold no j intermediate position; if not the first! entleman in England, he sinks at' once to a level incompatible with his title of Prince of Wales. Further on, it is A prince, particularly, should treat all around him with the most scrupu- lous good manners, civility, and atten- tion. He should return every mark of .respect, not only with the most punctilious exactitude, but with an ap- pearance of good will and cordiality.; A salute returned with the air of its! being a bore is rather an affront than a civility. Early -Meeting With Sultan The lesson was thoroughly learnt, for King Edward's cordial manner in returning salutes was one great source of his popularity. How early he be- an qualifying for the title of "Le Roi Iharmeur'1 which Lord Rosebery gave him is shown by a letter of Sir Henry Bulwer. written from Constantinople in January, lSf.2, during the Prince's visit there. But what pleased and struck me more than all. I must say. was our nee's own manner. He is always remarka-My easy, and' knows perfect- ly how to make those little speeches which princes are called upon to have so frequently their lips. But this was arriving at the breakfast.
