But though Lavengro takes up smithery, which, though theOrcadian ranks it with chess-playing and harping, is certainlysomewhat of a grimy art, there can be no doubt that, had he beenwealthy and not so forlorn as he was, he would have turned tomany things, honourable, of course, in preference. He hasno objection to ride a fine horse when he has the opportunity: hehas his day-dream of making a fortune of two hundred thousandpounds by becoming a merchant and doing business after theArmenian fashion; and there can be no doubt that he would havebeen glad to wear fine clothes, provided he had had sufficientfunds to authorize him in wearing them. For the sake ofwandering the country and plying the hammer and tongs, he wouldnot have refused a commission in the service of that illustriousmonarch George the Fourth, provided he had thought that he couldlive on his pay, and not be forced to run in debt to tradesmen,without any hope of paying them, for clothes and luxuries, asmany highly genteel officers in that honourable service were inthe habit of doing. For the sake of tinkering, he wouldcertainly not have refused a secretaryship of an embassy toPersia, in which he might have turned his acquaintance withPersian, Arabic, and the Lord only knows what other languages, toaccount. He took to tinkering and smithery, because nobetter employments were at his command. No war is waged inthe book against rank, wealth, fine clothes, or dignifiedemployments; it is shown, however, that a person may be agentleman and a scholar without them. Rank, wealth, fineclothes, and dignified employments, are no doubt very finethings, but they are merely externals, they do not make agentleman, they add external grace and dignity to the gentlemanand scholar, but they make neither; and is it not better to be agentleman without them than not a gentleman with them? Isnot Lavengro, when he leaves London on foot with twenty pounds inhis pocket, entitled to more respect than Mr. Flamson flaming inhis coach with a million? And is not even the honest jockeyat Horncastle, who offers a fair price to Lavengro for his horse,entitled to more than the scoundrel lord, who attempts to cheathim of one-fourth of its value?
