Example text

And, indeed, (xaLOa xet) it is declared by Waite that shenever got out of it; that a mere simulacrum and appearance arrived at Molesey; that the word was lost; and that a mere substituted word took its place. ' There was no more to be said. Waite and Dora still met and there were regular family Christmases at Polruan, but both the AnnusMirabilis(which ended in 1901) and its aftermath were over. Their relationship, while always affectionate, was now more practical, for Waite was a trustee of the leamington Trust-which provided the Stuart-Menteath income-and he dealt with the financialaffairs that neither Dora nor the hopelessly impractical Granville could manage.

Their lives,by 1908, were beginning to separate. Machen took up journalism and Fleet Street just as Waite was leaving the City and settling down again to the precarious life of an author. He was also increasingly preoccupied with his 'Independent and Rectified Rite' of the Golden Dawn (of which both Machen and Purefoy, albeit briefly, had been members) and was suffering from the gradual onset of a staid middle age. But they were friends always and could still find time to argue by post and to drink together when they met, even if it was not always for the best-as Machen reminded Waite in 1941: Many long years ago, as you sat at your board in Ealing, I remember your filling a small glassa 'pony' glass I think they called it-with whiskey in its purity, which you thereupon drank.

Machen's wife was never in good health and in 1894 her illness was diagnosed as cancer; she grew steadily weaker until in the summer of 1899 she died. Machen's grief was not lessened by its being expected and was so intense that he could never after bring himself to write directly about Amy's death. Even Waite says ofit only that 'she was " reconciled to the Latin Church-that of her childhood-before she passed away', and this to Machen's 'great satisfaction' (SLY, p. 156). Her dying is recorded more poignantly by Jerome: The memory lingers with me of the last time I saw his wife.
