“the greenhouse roof and the expense it would be, fifty pounds perhaps to mend it”

See Bicknell’s "Selected Letters of Leslie Stephen" (2 vols: 1864-1882 & 1882-1904), Vol.2 p.322, 5/2/1885: “a hailstorm of unprecedented ferocity” smashed about ½ the glass in the “glass houses” at Talland House.  “The glass is lying in ghastly heaps on the floor.”

(Day 52)
“It was at best an acute and frightful reminder that we were living foolishly and confusedly without much plan and foresight in a dangerous and unsympathetic universe.” (H. G. Wells)
