"[Mrs Ward"s average day at Stocks began] at 5.30 a.m, with the reading of Greek, or writing of letters, or much reading, for the reading of many books was still her greatest solace and delight. ""For reading, I have been deep in Emile Faguet"s ""Dix-huitieme siecle"", she wrote to Mrs Creighton in August, 1908, ""comparing some of the essays in it with Sainte-Beuve, the reactionary with the Liberal; reading Raleigh"s Wordsworth, and Homer and Horace as usual. If I could only give three straight months to Greek now I should be able to read most things easily, but I never get time enough - and there are breaks when one forgets what one knew before"". Greek literature meant more and more to her as the years went on, and though she could give so little time to it, the half-hour before breakfast which she devoted, with her husband, to Homer, or Euripides, or the ""Agamemnon"", became gradually more precious to her than any other fraction of the day".
