Queen Victoria's Correspond
ence Tells of Very Strict
UNDER EYE OF GOVERNESS
glected Vntil She llccame Heir
i Apparent Her Own Story of
Love and Marriage to
r Trince Albert.
i LONDON, Oct. 2!. The published let
I ters of the late Queen Victoria give an
Intimate picture of her forlorn childhood,
' when she was simply regarded aa an in
significant little Princess with no pros
pect of ever reaching the throne. The
Queen wrote her reminiscences of this
period, in 372, the manuscript being pre
served at Windsor Castle. She wrote:
"My earliest recollections are connected
with Kensington Palace, where I can re
member crawling on a yellow carpet
apread out for that purpose and being
told that If I cried and was naughty my
'Uncle Sussex' would hear me and punish
me, lor which reason I always screamed
when I saw him! 1 had a great horror of
bishops on account of their wigs and
aprons, but recollect this being partially
got over In the case-of the then Bishop
of. Salisbury (Dr. Klsher, greatuncle to
Mr. Fisher, private .secretary to the
Prince of Wales), by his kneeling down
and letting me play with his badge of
chancellor of the Order of the Garter.
With another bishop, however, the per
suasion of showing him my 'pretty shoes'
was of no use. Clareniont remains as the
brightest epoch of my otherwise melan

and lit the. small houses at the .bathing
places, 1 sat and took my lessons In my
governess' bedroom. I was not fond of
learning as a little child and baffled
every attempt to each me my letters up
to 6 years old when I consented to learn
them by their being w.-i'ten down before

-'In the year '26 (I think) George IV
Rsktvl my mother, my sister and me
clown to Windsor for the first time; ha
had been on bad terms with my poor
father when he died. .and took hardly any
notice of the poor widow and llttlo fath
erless girl, who were so poor at the time

! could not have traveled back to Kensing
j ton Palace had it not been for the kind
; assistance- of my dear uncle. Prince Leo-
pold. We went to Cumberland Lodge,
the King living at the Royal Lodge.
Aunt Gloucester was there at the same
(time. When we arrived at the Royal
Lodge the King took me by tho hand,
saying: 'Give me your little paw.' . He
was large and gouty, but with a wonder
;f ul .dignity and charm of . manner. He
wore the wig which was so much worn
In those days. Then he said he would
give me something for mo to wear, and
that was his picture set in diamonds,
which was worn by the Frlncess as an
order to a blue r.bbon on the left shoul
der; I was proud of this, and Lady
C'nnyngham pinned It on my shoulder.
"1 also remember going to see Aunt
Augusta at Krogmore, where she lived
always in the Summer.
"We lived In a slmple plain manner;
breakfast was at half-past 8, luncheon at
hnlf-past 1. dinner at 7 to which I came
generally (when it was no regular large
dinner party) eating" my bread and milk
out of a small silver basin. Tea was al-loiied-
only as a great treat in later
Xurse and (Inverness Strict.
"Up to my fifth year I had been much
indulged by- every one, and set pretty
wen all at defiance. Old Baroness de
Spath, the devoted woman of my mother;
mv nurse, Mis. Brock, dear old Mrs.
Livi'ln all worshiped the poor, little fath
er's child whose future then was stili
lmCYTtain; my uncle, the Duke of Clar
ence's poor little child, being alive, and"
the Duchess of Clarence had one or two
others later. At 5 years old, Miss Lehzen
was placed about me, and though she
was most kind, she was firm, and I had
a proper respect for her. I was natur
ally passionate, but always most contrite
nftrwards. I wns taught from the first
to . ' beg my maid's pardon for any
naughtiness or rudeness towards her; a
feeling I have ever retained, and think
every one should own their fault in a
kind way to any one, be he or she the
lowest if nnc has been rude to or injured
them by word or deed, especially thosa
below-you. People will readily forget an
insult or an Injury when others own their
fault, and express sorrow or regret at
what they have done.":
Her Training for Uie Throne.
'in June, 1S.T0, George IV died and Wil
liam IV succeeded to the throne. He had
no legitimate offspring and it was there
fore practically certain that If the Prin
cess Victoria outlived her uncle she would
su.'oeed him on the throne. The Duchess
of Kent at once began the education of a
yuren. The King died in and the
Princess Victoria succeeded him, and by
her accession to the throne "reinstated
the English monarchy in the affections of
The young Princess was high spirited
and willful, but "devotedly affectionate,
and almost typically feminine." She also
had "strong monarchical views and dy-n-uitic
sympathies, but 'she had no aris
tocratic preferences, at the same time
slie had no democratic, principles, but be-I'-'vt-d
firmly in the due subordination of
One of the creates blessings of Queen
Victorians girlhood was that she was
bro'jv-hr closely under the Influence of
"an enlightened and large-minded prince,"
Iwopold, her maternal uncle. Another per
son who had a large share in forming the
! Queen's character was Louise, afterward
tiaroness Lehzen, the daughter of a Hah
ovariatr clergyman, who first came to
Kngland as governess of her half-sister
Princess Feudore. Baron Slockmar was
another valuable friend, though the Eng
lish public objected to his Influence be
cause he was a German.
The most interesting letters In these
volumes are. those that passed between
the Queen and King Leopold. Her Maj
esty kept up an unbroken correspondence
wi!h him a:id wrote as fully as she would
to- her own father.
Vnt'le Proposed Husband.
One great bond between Queen Victoria
and iter uncle. Leopold, was that he was
the first t' suggest Prince Albert as her
ronsort, when she was still a Princess.
To ouote from her first- letter on this
subject, written after a "look at" meet
ing: "I must thank you, my beloved un
cle; for the prospect of great happi
ness you have contributed to give ine.
in the person of dear Albert, Allow
me, then, my dearest uncle, to tell
you how delighted I am with him, and
how much I like him in every way.
He possesses every quality that could
be desired to render me perfectly hap
py. He Is so sensible, so kind, and so
good, and so amiable, too. He has, be
sides, the most pleasing and delight
ful exterior and appearance you can
This was in 1836. Again in 1839 she
is now Queen she wrote King Leo
pold: Likes Albert, but Has Fears.
"I shall send this letter by a courier,
as I am anxious to put several Ques
tions to you, and to mention some
feelings of mine upon the subject of
my cousin's visit, which I am desirous
should not transpire. First of all, I
wish to know If Albert is aware of
the wish of his father and you relative
to me. Secondly, if he knows that there
is no engagement between us. I am
anxious that you should acQualnt Un
cle Ernest that if I should like Albert
I can make no final promise this year,
for, at the very earliest, any such
event could not take place till two or
three years hence. For, Independent
of my youth, and my great repugnance
to change my present position, there is
no anxiety evinced in this country for
Buch an event, and it would be more
prudent, in my opinion, to wait till
some such demonstration Is shown
else If it were hurried It might pro
"Though all the reports of Albert
are most favorable, and though I have
little doubt I shall like him, still one
can never answer beforehand for feel
ings, and I may not have the feeling
for him which is requisite to Insure
happiness. I may like him as a friend,
and as a cousin, and as a brother, but
not more; and should this be the case
(which is not likely) I am very anxious
that it should be understood that I
am not guilty of any breach of prom
ise, for I never gave any. I am sure
you will understand my anxiety, for I
should otherwise, were this not com
pletely understood, be in a very pain
ful position. As it is, I am rather
neivous about the visit, for the subject
I allude to is not an agreeable one
to me. I have little else to say, dear
uncle, as I have now spoken openly
to you, which I was very, very anx
ious to do."
Resolves to Marry Albert.
You see by this that the Queen was
more cautious than the Princess but
three months later the Queen, discov
ered that the Princess was right. She
made the discovery at Windsor Castle,
and she lost no time In acquainting
Prince Albert of her Intentions regard
ing htm. and, having done this, she
sat down and wrote her Uncle Leo
"This letter will. I am sure, give you
pleasure, for you have always shown
and taken so warm an interest in all
that concerns me. My mind is quite
made up and I told Albert this morn
ing of it; the warm affection he showed
me on learning this gave me great
pleasure. He seems perfection, and I
think that 1 have the prospect of very
great happiness before me. I love him
more than I can say. and I shall do
everything in my power to render the
sacrifice he has made (for a sacrifice,
in my opinion, It is) as small as I can.
He seoms to have a very great tact
a very necessary thing In his position.
These last few days have passed like
a dream to me. and I am so much be
wildered by it all that I know hardly
how to write; but I do feel very, very
Now that her mind was made up,
there was -no talk, as before, of two or
three years' waiting. This letter was
written in October: i
"We also think It better, and Albert
quite- approves of It, that we should
be married very soon after Parliament
meets, about the beginning of Febru
ary; and. Indeed, loving Albert as I do,
I cannot wish it should be delayed.
My feelings are a little changed, I
must say, since last Spring, when I
said I couldn't think of marrying for
three or four years; but seeing Albert
has changed all this."
All of which shows that Queens are
much 'ike other women when it comes
to affairs of the heart.
When King Wll'iam IV died and the
new Queen wrote a letter of condolence
to his wife, her a;nt. the Dowager Queen
Adelaide, to which the Litter replied, sub
scribing herself as "always your majes
ty's most affectionate friend, aunt and
subject." Such is the whiriliglg of time!
The next great event was the corona
tion, a full description of which the
Queen gives in her Journal. Amid all
this excitement, pomp and ceremony the
Queen had eyes for her governess. She
writes in her Journal:
"There was another most dear being
present at this ceremony, In the box im
mediately above the royal box, and who
witnessed all; it was my dearly beloved
angelic Lehzen, whose eyes I caught
when on the throne, and we exchanged
Took Dislike to Peel.
I am surprised to find this curious bit
of bad writing in an official letter from
the Queen to Lord Melbourne, In regard
to Sir Robert Peel:
"The Queen don't like his manner after
O! how different, how dreadfully dif
ferent, to that frank, open, natural and
most kind, warm manner of Lord Mel
bourne. The duke I like by far better to
When the latter was at the head of the
government he wanted the Queen to
change her ladies in waiting, but she
stood firm, declaring that "her ladles are
entirely her own affair and not the min
ister's." On this subject she wrote to
"You will easily imagine that I firmly
resisted this attack upon my power, from
these people who pride themselves" upon
upholding the prerogative! I acted quite
alone, but I have been, and shall be. sup
ported by my country, who are very en
thusiastic about it, and loudly cheered
me on going to church on Sunday. My
government have nobly stood by me, and
have resumed their posts, strengthened
by the feelings of the country."
Announces Her engagement.
This was before she had Prince Albert's
advice to lean -upon. Shortly after this
she made the declaration of her matri
monial intentions to the council, and this
is what she wrote to Prince Albert in
regard to her sensations:
"It was rather an awful moment to
be obliged to announce this to so many
people, many of whom were quite
strangers, but they told me I did it
very well, and I felt so happy to do it.
Good Lord Melbourne was deeply
moved about it, and Uxbridge likewise;
It lasted only two or three minutes.
Everybody, they tell me, is very much
pleased, and I wish you could have
Been the crowds of people who
cheered me loudly as I left the palace
for Windsor. I am so happy today.
O. if only you could be here. . . .
"Send me as aoon as possible the re
port of the announcement at Coburg.
I wear your dear picture mornings and
evenings, and wore It also at the meet
ing of the conseil."
Lays Down Law to Albert.
Notwithstanding her great love for
Albert there were some things that
she as Queen could not permit. One
was the choosing of his own sue. This
was done for him, and she wrote, tbey
were not yet married: "As to your
wish about your gentlemen, my dear
Albert. I must tell you quite honestly
that it will not do."
In another letter she writes:
"I am distressed to tell you what I
fear you' do not like, but it is necessary
my dearest, most excellent Albert. Once
more I tell you that you can perfectly
rely on me in these matters. . . .
Evidently Albert did not like being
left out In the choice of his gentlemen,
for In another letter Bhe writes:
"Now, my dearest, to be about what
is not so pleasant or amusing. I mean,
now for business. I am much grieved
that you feel disappointed about my
wish respecting your gentlemen, but
very glad that you consent to it, and
that you feel confidence in my choice."
Even Uncle Leopold could not always
have his way. To Albert she writes:,
"I have received today an ungracious
letter from Uncle Leopold. He appears
to me to be nettled because I no longer
asked for his advice, but dear uncle is
given to believe that he must rule the
roost everywhere. However, that is
not a necessity."
Wonders What Boy Will' Be Like.
The Queen's annoyance with her un
cle did not last long. She was soon
again on the old affectionate terms
with him, asking his advice and taking
it as a dutiful niece should in the cir
cumstances. Here is part of one of
Her Majesty's family letters to her
"I wonder very much who our little
boy King Edward VII. w-ill be like.
You will understand how fervent my
prayers and I am sure everybody's
must be, to see' him resemble his an
gelic dearest father In every, every re
spect, both In body and mind. O! my
dearest uncle, I am sure If you knew
how happy, how blessed I feel, and
how proud I feel In possessing such a
perfect being as my husband, as he is,
and. if you think that you have been
instrumental In bringing about this un
ion, it must gladden your heart! How
happy should I be to see our child
grow up just like him! Dear Pussy the
Empress Frederic, mother of the pres
ent Emperor of Germany, traveled with
us and behaved like a grown up per
son, so quiet and looking about and
coquetting with the hussars on either
side of the carriage."
Worried by Cares of State.
It is a pity to see a woman who so
loved peace and her family disturbed by
cares of state. Her ministers were not
always to her mind, and, as for Palmer
ston, he was downright rude. Wars dis
turbed her, and even the victories of
her armies did not make her happy, be
cause of the price paid for them. She
thought not so much of the proud sur
vivors as of the widows and orphans of
those who were killed. And yet she never
shirked her duty, whether it was for
war or peace. Many times she was
obliged to curb her inclinations for rea
sons of state, as when Louis Philippe and
his Queen were obliged to flee from the
mob and find refuge in England. She
could not receive tiiem as she liked any
more than she could have allowed Pal
merston to receive Kossuth as he would
Many years later, after the coup de'
etat, Queen Victoria visited France as
the guest of the Emperor Louis Napoleon
and his beautiful Empress, and visited
the tomb of Napoleon in their company.
Of this Incident she wrote to Baron
Won" by Louis Napoleon.
"It was touching and pleasing In the
extreme to see the alliance sealed so
completely, and without lowering either
country's pride, and to see old enmities
and rivalries wiped out over the tomb of
Napoleon I, before whose coffin I stood
(by torchlight) at the arm of Napoleon
III, now my nearest and dearest ally!
We have come back with feelings of
real affection for and Interest In France
and indeed how could it be otherwise,
when one saw how much was done to
please and delight us? The army, too
(such a fine one!), I feel a real affection
for as the companions of my beloved
"For the Emperor personally I have
conceived a real affection and friendship,
and so I may truly say of the prince.
You know what I felt the moment I saw
him and became acquainted .with him.
wha I wrote down about him, etc. Well,
we have now seen him for full ten days,
from 12 to 14 hours every day often
alone; and I cannot say how pleasant
and easy It Is to live with hm, or how
attached one becomes to him. I know
no one who puts me more at my ease,
or to whom I felt more inclined to talk
unreservedly, or in whom involuntarily I
should be more inclined to confide, than
Has No Liking for Politics.
Her greatest loss was still to cornel
With all Queen Victoria's fondness for
Louis Napoleon, she writes to her Uncle
"With such an extraordinary man one
can never be for one instant safe. It
makes me very melancholy; I love peace
and quiet in fact, I hate politics and tur
moil, and I grieve to think that a spark
may plunge us Into the midst of war.
Still I think that may be avoided. Any
attempt on Belgium would be casus beUt
for us; that you may rely upon. Invasion
I am not afraid of,-but the spirit of the
people here la very great they are full of
defending themselves and the spirit -of
the olden times is in no way quenched."
In this same letter she shows how tired
of it ajl she is, and yet she had many
more decades to reign:
"Albert grows daily fonder and fonder
of politics and (business, and is so wonder
fully fit for both and I grow dally to dis
like them both more and more. We women
are not made for governing and if we are
good women we must dislike these mas
culine occupations; but there are times
which force one to take interest in thera
nral gre bon gre, and I do, of course, in
tensely." I commend the last paragraph to suf
fragists here and In England.
Alas, Albert was not much longer to be
her prop and stay. In 1861 he died, and
no woman, high or low, rich or poor,
could have felt her loss more deeply. The
only comfort left the bereaved Queen now
was to carry out her husband's wishes,
to do what she believed he would have
her do, and nothing could swerve her
from this purpose. To Lord Charming,
whom she wrote on the death of his wife,
"The Queen s precious husband, though
wandering occasionally, was conscious tilt
nearly the last, and knew her and kissed
her an hour before his pure spirit fled to
Its worthy and fit eternal home.".
Here the letters end, and so far as hap
piness goes, the Queen's life ended also.
I am only outwardly separated from him,
and only for a time," more than half her
