        I had first become acquainted with my Italian friend by meeting him at certain great
houses where he taught his own language and I taught drawing. All I then knew of the history
of his life was that he had left Italy for political reasons; and that he had been for many years
respectably established in London as a teacher.
        Without being actually a dwarf – for he was perfectly well-proportioned from head to
foot –Pesca was, I think, the smallest human being I ever saw. Remarkable anywhere, by his
personal appearance, he was still further distinguished among the mankind by the eccentricity
of his character. The ruling idea of Pesca‟s life now was to show his gratitude to the country
that had given him a shelter by doing his utmost to turn himself into Englishman. The Professor
aspired to become an Englishman in his habits and amusements, as well as in his personal
appearance. Finding us distinguished, as a nation, by our love of athletic exercises, the little
man devoted himself to all our English sports and pastimes, firmly persuaded that he could
adopt our national amusements by an effort of will the same way as he had adopted our national
galleries and our national white hat.
        I had seen him risk his limbs blindly unlike others at a fox-hunt and in a cricket field;
and soon afterwards I saw him risk his life, just as blindly, in the sea at Brighton.
        We had met there accidentally, and were bathing together. If we had been engaged in any
exercise peculiar to my own nation I should, of course, have looked after Pesca carefully; but as
foreigners are generally quite as well able to take care of themselves in the water as
Englishmen, it never occurred to me that the art of swimming might merely add one more to the
list of manly exercises which the Professor believed that he could learn on the spot. Soon after
we had both struck out from the shore, I stopped, finding my friend didn‟t follow me, and

turned round to look for him. To my horror and amazement, I saw nothing between me and the
beach but two little white arms which struggled for an instant above the surface of the water,
and then disappeared from view. When I dived for him, the poor little man was lying quietly at
the bottom, looking smaller than I had ever seen him look before.
        When he had thoroughly recovered himself, his warm Southern nature broke through all
artificial English restraints in a moment. He overwhelmed me with the wildest expressions of
affection and in his exaggerated Italian way declared that he should never be happy again until
he rendered me some service which I might remember to the end of my days.
        Little did I think then – little did I think afterwards – that the opportunity of serving me
was soon to come; that he was eagerly to seize it on the instant; and that by so doing he was to
turn to the whole current of my existence into a new channel. Yet so it was. If I had not dived
for Professor Pesca when he lay under water, I should never, perhaps, have heard even the
name of the woman, who now directs the purpose of my life.
