Framley Parsonage
by Anthony Trollope




Overview -
Excerpt: ...that one is not able to tell the real facts as they are. You make one speak in such a bald, naked way." "Ah, you think that anything naked must be indecent; even truth." "I think it is more proper-looking, and better suited, too, for the world's work, when it goes about with some sort of a garment on it. We are so used to a leaven of falsehood in all we hear and say, nowadays, that nothing is more likely to deceive us than the absolute truth. If a shopkeeper told me that his wares were simply middling, of course, I should think that they were not worth a farthing. But all that has nothing to do with my poor brother. Well, what was I saying?" "You were going to tell me how well he would use me, no doubt." "Something of that kind." "That he wouldn't beat me; or spend all my money if I managed to have it tied up out of his power; or look down on me with contempt because my father was an apothecary Was not that what you were going to say?" "I was going to tell you that you might be more happy as Mrs. Sowerby of Chaldicotes than you can be as Miss Dunstable
