MIDDLETON by Anthony Eliot TABLE OF CONTENTS I. The Roots of the Enmity II. An
Unhappy Meeting III. Middleton's Resolve IV. The Election CHAPTER III MIDDLETON'S
RESOLVE "I shall go down to Wokingham", said Middleton, "a few days before the election, and
the Major will stay here. I understand that there will be no other candidate, and _I_ shall take the
seat. "The Major is a . . . _flaneur_. He has no interest beyond his own advancement. I can buy
him for a hundred pounds. _Here_ is his answer." Wallace wondered at the _hubris_ of his
friend, and examined the note Middleton thrust upon him. "Sir, No consideration would induce
me to change my resolve in this matter, but I am willing to engage your services as my agent for a
fee of 100 pounds. H. Middleton" CHAPTER IV THE ELECTION Now hatred is by far the longest
pleasure; Men love in haste, but they detest at leisure. ---- BYRON On hearing of Middleton's
visit, Mr. Wentworth began his preparations. Meeting with Thomas Lake and Riley at the back of
the tap-room of The Bull & Gate--where the landlord saw to it that they remained undisturbed--he
laid out their plan of campaign. "That d---l Middleton shall not have the seat," he raved, "not for
Lord H------; no, nor for a hundred Lords! We shall see to it that every man's hand is turned
against him when he arrives." Lake unfolded a paper from his vest-pocket and smoothed it on the
table. "Here are the expenses we should undertake." Doran L13 10s. Titwell L 8 7s. 6d. St.
