The Days Before Yesterday. Subject: Great Britain - Court and courtiers.

Lord Dufferin told me himself, when I was his Private Secretary in Petrograd, that on the occasion of his official visit to British Columbia (of course by sea), in either 1876 or 1877, as Governor-General, he was expected to drive under a triumphal arch which had been erected at Victoria, Vancouver Island. This arch was inscribed on both sides with the word "Separation. I remember perfectly Lord Dufferin's actual words in describing the incident: "I sent for the Mayor of Victoria, and told him that I must have a small-a very small-alteration made in the inscription, before I could consent to drive under it; an alteration of one letter only.

The French tutor selected for me enjoyed a great reputation at that time. Oddly enough, she was a woman, but it will be gathered that she was quite an exceptional woman, when I say that she had for years ruled four unruly British cubs, varying in age from seventeen to twenty, with an absolute rod of iron. Mme. Ducros was the wife of a French judge, she spoke English perfectly, and must have been in her youth a wonderfully good-looking woman. She was very tall, and still adhered to the dress and headdress of the "sixties," wearing little bunches of curls over each ear--a becoming fashion, even if rather reminiscent of a spaniel.

I really enjoyed this book. This is the story of Lord Frederick's life during the reign of Queen Victoria. As the son of a duke he was introduced to many important people, and he traveled the world during his work for the Foreign Office, giving a glimpse of Britain at the height of the Empire.

The author has an easy style and a gentle wry sense of humor. I think he was probably a nice person to know. I gave this book four stars because he has a tendency to wander off on tangents, but I still found it to be an enjoyable read.

I am a great fan of Lord Frederick Hamilton's Here, There and Everywhere. Imagine my delight to find this book in Amazon! I found it a most amusing and entertaining read about a childhood and youth far removed from ours. I heartily recommend The Days Before Yesterday.
