Shortly After The Battle Of Deraskie, Theodore Turned His Victorious Arms Against The Wallo Gallas, Possessed Himself Of Magdala, And Ravaged And Destroyed So Completely The Rich Galla Plain That Many Of The Chiefs Joined His Ranks, And Fought Against Their Own Countrymen.

He had now not only avenged the long-oppressed Christians, so often victims of the Galla inroads, but curbed for a long time the haughty spirit of these clans.

At the height of success, he lost his brave and loving wife. He felt the cruel blow deeply. She had been his faithful counsellor, the companion of his adventures, the being he most loved; and he cherished her memory while he lived. In 1866, when one of his artisans almost forced himself into his presence to request permission for me to remain a few days near the man's dying wife, Theodore bent his head, and wept at the remembrance of his own wife whom he had so deeply loved.

The career of Theodore may be divided into three very distinct periods: - First, from his early days to the death of his first wife; secondly, from the fall of Ras Ali to the death of Mr. Bell; thirdly, from this last event to his own death. The first period we have described: it was the period of promise. During the second - which extends from 1853 to 1860 - there is still much to praise in the conduct of the Emperor, although many of his actions are unworthy of his early career.
