had met with 
A short time before, this gentleman 
the loss of a wife, 
a severe domestic misfortune in 
he was much attached ; 
to whom 
he resolved 
and 
t0 shew his respect to her memory by devoting 
his attention exclusively to the improvement of 
his children: for this purpose he had sent to 
England for a governess qualified to undertake 
of 
the education 
his 
daughters, 
and 
he 
had 
the 
good fortune to obtain a lady eminently Htted 
for the trust. She arrived a few days only before 
the young Artist, and her natural discernment 
enabled 
her 
to 
appreciate 
that 
original 
bias 
of 
she had heard ascribed to him, and of 
mind which 
Which she soon perceived the determination and 
the strength. Finding him unacquainted with 
Bible, and the works of 
any other books than the 
Richardson and Fresnoy, she frequently invited 
him to sit with her pupils, vand, during the inter- 
vals of their tasks, she read to him the most strik- 
ing and picturesque passages from translations of 
the antient historians and poetry, of which Mr. 
Flower had a choice and extensive collection.
