Ernest鈥檚 father and mother have no interest, and if they had they would not use it. I suppose they will make him a clergyman, or try to do so 鈥?perhaps it is the best thing to do with him, for he could buy a living with the money his grandfather left him, but there is no knowing what the boy will think of it when the time comes, and for aught we know he may insist on going to the backwoods of America, as so many other young men are doing now.鈥?. . . .
