I resolved to confide nothing of Liat i had Learned to Henri. I must lio wearer remove his suspicion of Miette and console him useless to Trust him for lie depth of his an it i both by hic Mir ted the position he assumed Render it marriage impossible in which i thought Huppi Ness of his life was wound up. I returned a bout three of clock and found no one at Home. My wife and son had gone to the Manor of be Reinout and i went there to join them. The plaything pleased Henri decidedly and his Mother was trying to Nur Suade him under the pretence of a study to fit up comfortable suite of apartments suitable for a Bachelor. I did not agree with them. In my opinion the Manor should be left exactly As it was the Only change advisable being to clean the Toom that the old Coras de pfc ree Mont had occupied. A Henri a said i a whether he marries his Cousin Enilie or not he will marry some one in two or three a cars. Who knows if he will go to live with is wife or remain with us in the latter ease i suppose his wife will wish to live in the Tower great expense must be then incurred to prepare it for housekeeping and a family. All that you do at present will be it to to of use and will perhaps have to be done tin do not be in a hurry to throw Money to no yielded to my judgment. His blamed him for always giving up to never carrying out any ideas that de. A you just promised me a you would not think of Marran were thirty years doing him until she was tired aha left As alone and i hastened to say to Henri a i have just been to see Miette. Assure of it the person whose presence Yon so much at her House last evening was a a you Are sure fut be Why then did die conceal her quot a tia a nun from the Convent of Rioni. Whom the physician has ordered to be sent Isth the country for a while you know theae huns Are cloistered and Trust not see any one belonging to the outside world whenever a visitor arrives Miette has promised to give her warning so that she May take herself out of the Way. 8h� has also received instructions not to reveal to any one the presence of this nun under her Root for the Rule of the order requires her to live and die in a Convent. The Bishop seeing the urgency of the Case granted a dispensation tor two months upon condition that the matter should be kept quiet. 1 entrust the secret to you and beg you to say nothing to your Mother in regard to it. Miette very much attached to this Nan who was like Asther to her at the Convent spends her a amp Ola time in taking care of her waiting upon her and keeping her concealed. As Gogl. Miette with the heart of an Angel Bftts the part of a sister of Tjw what must she think of me for bringing a sch an accusation against her did you tel her what i said a a i a a not so foolish she would not Pardon yen very easily but tears Are in your Eye Tell me frankly if Emilie is not de afr to you than you Are willing to said Henri a i feel inclined to weep and to laugh also.�?�. A laugh and weep us Muchas you like but speaker it j a that is difficult i can not tel you How 1 Feci when my own mind a not Clear to my frit. I know that Emilie is an Angels better still she is a Saint for. If she has the innocence and Candor attributed to celestial be cd a c has also the Merit of a generous end dds Ageous soul that surmount All Toht be it is a glory to be loved by her a an Preste Felicity to have her for a Wile 1 you Aee i know what Ehe a Worth but am Good for any thing am i worthy of Anch a wife what have i done to deserve her on the contrary. I have not without stain Paa aed through an experience of Nee of which Abb its not the least idea and from which i woe compelled to drive away her image to prevent it from making me ashamed of my plea a urea. And now 1 re tuvo to her deteriorated and sorrowful. A Man elite id marry at eighteen fatties in the a Ivor of Faith in Luau a and in the Pride of holy innocence. He would then feel himself the equal of Bia companion and. Be sure of meriting her respect. Yes conjugal love is that austere a Vatel altered thing concerning which it May i stud if it a not All in a a it a nothing. Well.1 did not understand this until lately and when my senses Drew me elsewhere i did not dream that my esteem and respect for Emilie would be lessened. I have since seen my mistake. My worship has grown cold i am convinced that i never loved her As i ought since i could forget her. I was fearful of her and of myself. I thought her too much my Superior morally speaking to receive me with pleasure and to give herself to me with enthusiasm. I saw in marriage Chain of a frightful seriousness. My imagination pictured other types than that of this Young girl. Who is too perfect for me. I lost the taste for simplicity and love for the right path i put too Many artificial Flowers in my Garden of love. 1 can not speak to Emilie i dare not look at her. I shall never know How to gain her love. Do you wish me to Tell you every things to confess some thing absolutely shameful yesterday when i believed her unfaithful at first my blood ran cold and then suddenly i became furious. Jealousy tormented me and i did not close my eyes for the whole night. If Phe had been near me i should have insulted perhaps beaten her i was madly in love with her even when believing her unfaithful. I had the greatest trouble possible to prevent myself from going to see her notwithstanding her prohibition and yours. Now you make Plain to me that i have been a madman and a fool show me Emilie a image with its immaculate Aureole and behold me cast Down and repentant but Uncertain and fearful. I can not Tell whether i love her or not a a that will do that will do a i replied now i understand every thing these things must happen. There is a period of life when fathers with the Best intentions Are forced to abandon their sons to Fate very Happy if they Are restored in no worse condition than you Are. Accept the past which you can not change and do not aggravate its influence by too serious reflections. Yon have made a voyage where you have been forced to feed on condiments and now our fruits and milk diet seem insipid to your taste. You Are no longer a virginian Shepherd quot. Have patience these simple pleasures will return. Man is modified according to his sphere you will appreciate More quickly than you imagine the conditions of True happiness. Forget for a Little while the question of mar Riqie. Emilie does not seem imposed to recall it to your mind. She says you Are so changed that she does not feel acquainted with you any longer and her mind 1 plainly see iras no fixed plan in regard to you. You Are both absolutely free to recommence the Romance of your youth or to suffer it to be eff eed in the Rosy Clouds of the i am not easily alarmed neither am i heedless of consequences. I saw plainly that in this of in every thing else happiness is transitory and Security chimerical. I expected that the Day which restored my son to me would be one of the happiest of my life. I was so glad to see him once More Anil had such Happy dreams when expecting him in spite of the faults that he freely confessed and took Little gains to conceal in his letters he had worked hard and was at the commencement of a career promising i Brilliant future. He was intelligent hand some Good Rich and As reasonable As could be expected from his age and situation. We had near at hand the bes girl in the country Rich also Good Beautiful As an an Angel and exceptionally intellectual. They loved each other and had been betrothed from childhood. I expected to see them meet joyfully and talk of marriage immediately and already a strange coolness had sprung up Between them. My wife whom i believed amenable to reason at least on this subject was diligently working to set them at variance. Miette through the kindness of her heart was involved in a questionable adventure. Jacques was carrying on an amorous intrigue which would Compromise or bring trouble to his sister and worst of All Henri troubled and tormented Between love ant Caprice did not sleep the first night passed under the paternal roof and was evidently suffering from an indefinable mental condition beyond my Power to cure. My Day of happiness was not unclouded and while 1>rcter.ding to smile at these trifling matters Felt strongly the effects of the reaction. Chapter Viii. The evening passed very cheerfully Many relations and friends dined with us. Henri was a general favorite and every one congratulated me on the Possession of such a son he received several invitations Bat Only accepted those where i could go with him. He had been away to Long he said that he was determined not to lose sight of me during the vacation. We accepted for the next Day an invitation to a Linting party from one of our cousins who lived so far off quot that we were obliged to be absent from Home two Days. Jacques Ormonde promised to join the party but he was not there. We scarcely thought of his absence the Hunting and tha entertainment were so animated and enjoyable but i noticed the evident care in avoiding is. It was very difficult for Jacques to keep a secret therefore i inferred that he had one and dreaded my scrutiny. We stayed a Day longer than we intended and did not return until monday afternoon. The first thing that attracted my attention As i bade my wife Good Day was a pretty Little girl six or seven years old full of smiles and play who Clung to her skirts and said to me in a defiant tone a Are Yon Bebelle a husband quot quot who is Bebelle and whose is this pretty child quot a it is Mademoiselle Leonie de Nives a re a lied my wife taking her in her arms a she eard me called Madame Chantabul. And she finds it Shorter and prettier to Call me Bebelle. Of we Are already great friends is it not so Ninie we get along famously a but How came you to be acquainted with her a i demanded. My wife explained the matter while the child left unto play in the Garden. Madame de Nives came the evening before to talk with me and my wife had gained Confidence enough to receive Iier to tie Best of her ability. The exquisite toilet and Brilliant equipage of the countess turned her head. Madame did her Best to be agreeable and fascinating to the wife of the lawyer whom she wished to secure for her cause. She consented to let her horse stand in the stable for two hours. She walked in the Garden and even ascended the great Tower of which Madame Chantabul was proud to do the honors. She admired the locality the Garden the House the Birds and promised a pair of real dutch canaries tor the aviary. Stye deigned to accept a collation of fruit and Jaaka that was served tor her declared that it grapes or pears at Nives bore any com Parison with ours even asked the recipe tor the cake. She went away saying Hie would return the next Day. 8he did return As she said with her daughter expecting to find me at Home As i had promised to be but 1 was never in season. This poor counts had waited tor me More than an hour then having business at Kioto she had conferred upon my House the distinguished Honor of leaving her Little girl there in my wife a arms and she was now expected every minute. A i Hope m. Chantabul a said my wife As she finished the Story a that you will have your clothes brushed for they Are covered with dust and change your Cravat for it is very much i remarked that she was richly dressed to receive her new Friend. A Little while after Madame de Nives arrived and my wife hastened to meet her leading the Little one by the hand. The countess announced to me that she was on her Way to Paris some one had written her that her step daughter had been seen entering an hotel in the Faubourg st. Germain leaning on the Arm of a Young Man very tall and very Blond. A the person who gives me this information a she added a thinks that Marie is still there at any rate i shall know where she went after leaving this hotel which is not otherwise designated. People Are so afraid of being compromised or finding themselves implicated in some scandal i must go myself to find out the truth. I shall act energetically take Marie by Surprise oblige her to make a statement of her misconduct and bring her Back to replace her triumphantly in the a you speak boldly then can you Hope for a reconciliation for Concession on her part i have told you and i repeat it that misconduct does not involve deprivation of civil a when i possess her secret i will bring her to you m. Chantabul and you shall Lay Down the conditions of my if i had been sure that before taking Refuge with Emilie Mademoiselle de Nives after escaping from the Convent had not been seen in Paris with Jacques either for her own pleasure or for advice in regard to her position i should have hastened the departure of the countess. The time she would lose in her useless search for Mademoiselle Marie would be just so much gained for the inhabitants of Vig Nolette but if this journey took place without Emilie a knowledge Madame de Nives could Trace out the fugitive and with the Aid of the police discover the truth. I advised once More patience and prudence. Madame de Nives was however determined to have her own Way and took leave of me saying that to Surprise Marie in open criminality was her surest Means of safety. Whatever she might say i saw plainly that she had taken other advice than mine and had easily it und persons disposed to gratify her passion and enter into her views. Her cause became More and More disagreeable to me and i Felt strongly impelled to have nothing to do with it. I accompanied her Only As far As the Garden. Another client was waiting for me and i was occupied with him until dinnertime. What was my Surprise when upon entering the dining room i saw the Young Leonie de Nives seated in a High chair that had done service in Henri a childhood and my wife in the act of tying a Napkin around her neck Madame de Nives had confided to Madame Chantabul on the previous evening All that she had entrusted to me ask profound secret. Women have a marvelous facility in becoming intimate when hatred on one Side and curiosity on the other find the Savory aliment of a scandal to confide and to listen to. Madame Chantabul was then thoroughly versed in All the details of the Case and my astonishment amused her very much. As she could not enter into any explanation before the child she simply 3aid to Henri and me that a her Mamma would return in the a i asked her to stay and Dine with us a said my wife a but she intends to Start for Paris this evening or to Morrow morning she has too much to do at room and begged me to keep her Little one until she came for Madame de Nives did not return in the evening. My wife did not appear to be much astonished and had a Little bed arranged near her own for her Young guest. After undressing Mademoiselle Ninie and sitting by her until she went to sleep she came Back to explain the mystery. Madame de Nives had been obliged to take the five of clock train for room she was now on her Way to Paris. I ought to know that not a moment should be lost in such an in ski rant affair a that which now engrossed her attention. Madame de Nives had dreaded the tears of her Little daughter whom she could not take with her and had accepted her offer to keep her until evening. Her nurse would have come with the Carriage to take her to Nives but she had shown much anxiety on account of this nurse having discovered on that very Day that she was carrying on an intrigue at room. A the servants of this poor lady a my wife said a Are not As faithful As they should be. Domestic arrangements had not been prosperous in her chateau since her husbands death. The old servants took the Side of the elder daughter. She was obliged to turn them out of the House but they left behind their evil influence and their wicked insinuations it was useless to take the servants to Paris at the least discontent they became insolent and talked to Ninie about her sister Marie driven away and shut up in a Convent on her account. All this irritated the child and during the last absence of the countess Many things were said to the Little girl that made her unhappy and disobedient when her Mother returned. It appears also that Madame de Nives neighbors Are not on Good terms with her she has neither relatives nor friends she is truly an object of pity. While listening to her grievances which aroused my sympathy the idea came into my head of pro losing to take care of the Little one. A if the nurse has behaved improperly you can not Trust the child to her any longer. Give her to me you know who i am and with what indulgence i brought up Ray own and the other two dear ones i lost. You say that you will be absent but a week at the most. What is it for us to take care of a child for a week it will be a pleasure to me. Trust me to dismiss your bad nurse when she comes Back and to find another for whom i will be responsible As for she was inclined to accept my offer but dared not on your account. She said a a a my child is noisy and will annoy m. a a a nonsense a i replied a you do not know Bim he is a patriarch he is Good As bread and adores at last i urged her to much that she left me her Darling who is a love of a child. The poor woman was so touched that she wept and embraced me when she Lade me a is it possible wife you have been embraced by a countess that is the reason Why i find on your face a More Noble expression than a a Ltd you Are making fun of me it is insufferable it is of no use to try any longer to talk reasonably with you m. Chantabul you you give Back with reproaches. The child does not make me angry a child never annoys me. Keep her As Long As you please but let me Tell you that your countess is a regular a How disrespectfully Yon Spenk of the countess de Nives what manners have sometimes m. Chantabul a a yes i have the bad manners and the bad taste to think that a reasonable Mother does not Trust her child even for a week toa person whom she has known Only since last evening and that if she has among All her former connections neither a devoted relative nor a sincere Friend nor a faithful servant it must be her a you Are right. I would not have trusted Henri to strangers in this Way but i am not unknown to Madame de Nives. She has heard me spoken of often enough to know that i have always been a Good Mother and an irreproachable a i shall not say any thing to the contrary but this sudden Confidence astonishes me none the a there Are exceptional circumstances that the future of the result of her a a insufferable you a no you Are the Best of men you can not blame me tor having received a poor child who needs to be taken care of and watched Over during her mothers a god keep me from it a so much the More of you pay me compliments that i will not and you ought to know the child depends upon mothers visit to a she told Yon then a a every thing.�?�. A she did a i promised to keep the a god Grant that you May keep your word for i warn you that if your new Friend brings reproach upon the reputation of her step daughter she is ruined. A ooh no this step daughter is a wretched being who a a you do not know her keep the epithets that May be appropriate for the time when we find out whether she is a victim or a chapter in. The next Day Mademoiselle Ninie a nurse not having appeared my wife found an excellent servant girl to take her place whose parents lived near and with whom we were Well acquainted. The Little girl seemed to be very Happy with us. I was curious to know her feelings in ref Ard to her half sister. One morning i saw ice alone in the Garden my wife Busy with her work was sitting at one of the lower windows and watching the Little girl at her play. I went into the Garden took the child by the hand and led her to see some rabbits in a Little enclosure where they were kept. When she had admired them for some time i took Lier on my knee and began to talk to her. A you must have at Nives a i said a much More Beautiful rabbits than these a a no there Are no rabbits at All. There Are Only hens dogs and cats but Mamma is not willing to let me play with them for fear that i shall soil or tear my clothes and this makes me angry for i am very fond of animals. Mamma scolds at me for Loving them because she is a stingy what does that word mean a a nah bless me i done to know. The servants Call her so because she is always scolding a that is a bad word. You must never repeat words that you do not know the meaning of. Iam sure your Mamma loves you very much and that she is very Good to a she is not Good at All. She whips me and strikes me and i never have a Good time excepting when she has gone a a have you any Brothers and Sisters a a i have a grown up sister who is very Good. I should like to live with her a always do you not see her often a a no she is in prison in a Convent. I saw Here i mean i saw her portrait. I think i never saw a then How do you know that she is Good a a a my nurse and the old gardeners wife told me that she was put in prison on that a what put in prison because she is Good a a a so it seems. Therefore when Mamma tells nip to be Good i answer a no you would make me go to prison in the same Way a Iam very glad she brought me to your House. I Hope you will let me stay Here then without waiting for my reply Mademoiselle Ninie whom i had hard work to hold ran after the rabbits faster than Ever. I saw a child already the victim of misfortune and a wanderer from the right path. I no longer doubted that her Mother was both avaricious and wicked. It was even possible that she saw in her daughter Only a pretext for contesting Marie a inheritance with greater avidity. She had not even the resource of hypocrisy the Power of making dupes for she was thoroughly detested Ana her servants had disturbed if not irretrievably injured the moral sense of poor Ninie. I looked with painful emotion upon this bewitching child clothed in All the physical Beauty of her Happy age and thought that there was already a gnawing worm in the heart of this Rose. I watched her closely to discover the ruling impulses of her character they were Good and tender. She ran after the rabbits in order to Caress them and when she had succeeded in catching one she covered it with kisses and tried to swaddle it in her handkerchief to make a baby of it. As the animal was unmanageable and threatened to scratch her pretty face i took him away gently without opposition on her Kart and gave her a tame Dove which made or wild with Delight. At first she squeezed it very closely but when i made her understand that she must let it go free in order to have the pleasure of seeing it come Back and follow her of its own Accord she listened to me willingly and handled it gently but there was an ardor in her caresses that revealed a soul full of unrequited love and repressed sensibility. The next Day st. Hyacinths Day was my birthday and also the festival Day of our Village. Two. Or three dozen cousins and nephews arrived with their wives arid children to pass the Holiday with us. They went to participate in the Rural fete while my wife up with the Dawn prepared a Homeric feast i was absorbed As usual with a crowd of clients prosperous peasants or Humble citizens who took advantage of the fete to consult me and deprived me of the pleasure of being present at the festival. I endured the Long and confused explanations of these worthy persons until the first Bell rang for dinner. Then i resolutely put them out of doors not without a struggle on the stairway against their references and repetitions. When i passed into the drawing room after shutting the door in their faces i met with an agreeable Surprise. Emilie Ormonde was waiting tor me with a Large bouquet of magnificent roses in har hand. Tha dear child threw herself into my arms wishing me a pleasant birthday with liar it piness. Good Fortune and health. A this quot a i said pressing her to my heart a is a great enjoyment which i did not expect have Yon been Here Long my dear Niece a. A i have just arrived Uncle and i am going a Way immediately. You must excuse me from dining with Yon As on other years but you know Why i can not Marie is imprudent she is tired of being shut up. The poor child has been a prisoner so Long. Would you believe that this morning she took it into her head to disguise herself As a peasant to come to the feet she said no one knew her face and she wanted to accompany me As a servant. The Only Way i could dissuade her from her purpose was by promising to be gone but an hour. I could not let the Day pass without bringing you the Vig Nolette roses nor without telling you to Day As always that you and Jacques Are the two persons whom i love the Best in the a and your aunt a a i have not seen her. I will pay my respects to her As i go a How will you explain the reason Why you do not stay a a she will not care to have me stay a and if i let you go shall you imagine that i do not love you and longer a a ooh it is different with you and then you know i have a child to take care a an unreasonable child i am sure of it do you know that her step Mother was Here two Days ago a a yes 1 knew also that she left her Little daughter with a who told you so a a old Nicole a daughter who came yesterday to bring Back some baskets you had Lent us. She saw the child and they told her that the Mother had gone to Paris. Is it True a a it is True and Mademoiselle Marie runs a great risk of being discovered if after escaping from the Convent she were seen in Paris before coming to your a she was there Uncle i know it now. She was obliged to Purchase under clothing and dresses and especially to seek counsel in her affairs concerning which she had always been kept in entire a she was in Paris alone a a no wit i her nurse the one who helped her to escape. This woman is devoted to her and yet i Arft afraid of her she does not understand the necessity of being prudent she suspects nothing and when she comes to see Marie i do not dare to leave her alone in the House with a but where is Jacques All this time a a the must be at the dance and doubtless he will come and Dine with a that is right go then if you must. I Hope that you will make ample amends to me when you Are no More the guardian slave of your Beautiful Friend. Have you seen Henri a a no i have seen and wish to see no one but you. Adieu until we meet again dear Uncle a the second Bell rang for dinner As my Niece went away through the farm Yard where she had left her carib be in charge of a Domestic. Henri who came through the Garden did not see her. The crowd of nephews cousins second cousins and grand nephews arrived also and at last Jacques Ormonde Redas a Peony from having danced until the last minute. The dinner was not very tedious for a family repast in the country it was Well known that i did not like to sit Long at table. It was served promptly and did not allow the guests to go to sleep while they were eating. As soon As it was finished feeling the need of breathing the outdoor air after the confinement my clients had imposed upon me in the morning i proposed to go and take Coffee at father Rosier a who kept a rustic establishment in the Village. We could see the dances and diversions from his Garden. My proposition was enthusiastically welcomed by my Young nieces and cousins. We set off laughing shouting frisking about and singing. The Village was Only half a mile from the House taking the paths through my Meadow lands. Our boisterous arrival made All the Young people come out of the wine shops. They were getting ready to Light the signal Light for it was dark. They called the fiddlers scattered around in the houses. The Young folks who came with me cared Little for taking Coffee they wished to dance. The per Tummel of the fete brightened up very much. The dance abandoned for a time was reorganized As is usually the Case when hunger is appeased and the evening begins. During this Quarter of an hour of. Impatient expectation and Joyful disorder i chanced to be alone for a few minutes on father hosiery a Terrace. This Terrace was a Little Garden on the Declivity of a Hill planted with hazelnut Trees and carried from the Point of the Rock about six feet perpendicular above the level of the place appropriated for dancing. It was much the prettiest place for getting a View of the whole effect of the fete. Three Blue lanterns concealed in the foliage produced the appearance of Moonlight and made it easy for different persons to recognize each other. The illumination had however not commenced and i was waiting in the darkness until my turn came to be served when i perceived some one approaching with a Stealthy step who touched me lightly on the shoulder. A a done Taay a word Uncle it is i a what Are you doing Here dear child i thought you had gone a a i have been Home and come Back Uncle. Are you alone Here a a yes just this moment but speak a yes certainly i must Tell you that i did not find Marie at Vig Nolette. Nicole told me that Charliette came in my absence and that they went out a Well you think they Are Here a a a yes i think so and i am looking for a in this Way entirely alone among these peasants filled with wine Many of whom Are not acquainted with you for they come from All parts of the country a a a i am not afraid of any thing Uncle. There Are enough who Are acquainted with me to protect me in Case of need. Beside Jacques will be Here and i thought you would take care of a then do not leave me and let your Madcap Friend follow her own adventures. It is not right that to save a person who does not wish to be saved you should expose yourself to insult. Remain with me. I will not allow you to take care of Mademoiselle Marie. Jacques is there to take care of her in your place and in his own a Jacques does not know her Uncle i assure you a i interrupted Miette by making a sign for her to observe a couple moving stealthily along the Rock Hesow us in the thick Shade that the Hazel nut Trees threw upon the lower ground plot. I recognized Jacques voice. We remained motionless listening and heard the following dialogue a no i will not go Back yet. I want to dance the Bourne with you. It is dark and besides no one knows a they will soon Light up and every one will notice a a Why a a you ask the reason do you believe there is another peasant girl Hare As fair As slender and As pretty As you Are a a Lyon Are flattering me i will tem a you needs tot boost of my acquaintance a a i know it is not Worth speaking a cruel creature come Call Charliette and go Home with a it is you who Are cruel How can you refuse me this Little enjoyment a a my Uncle is Here and you know that he is the advocate of your a that makes no difference to me he will be mine if i wish. When he knows me he will be on my Side. You said so yourself. Come Jacques Here Are the bagpipes coming. I must a it is absolute madness a a ooh to dance the Bourree As in my childhood to have been ten years in a Dungeon to escape from the icy coldness of death to feel myself alive and to dance the Bourree. Jacques my Good Jacques i Hope set my heart upon it a the noisy music of the bagpipes interrupted the conversation or prevented us from hearing it. The Beacon was at last lighted and father Rosier a Garden was also illuminated. I saw All my guests those who were not dancing were taking the Coffee i had ordered while the Young men scattered Over the Square were inviting their partners Fox the dance. I moved a few Steps out of the Way with Emilie in such a manner As to prolong my Tete a Tete with her without ceasing to observe what was taking place upon the Green. When the Beacon blazed up we saw very distinctly the great Jacques bounding in the dance and lifting in his arms a slender and pretty peasant girl very Graceful attired. A it is indeed she a said Emilie in consternation a it is Marie disguised a a you begin to think that she is a Little acquainted with your brother a a i was mistaken Uncle a very much mistaken he Lias done a and now what Are you going to do a a wait until her fancy is gratified approach her speak to her gently As to a Domestic in my service and take her Home before she has attracted too much attention a a wait until i look at a do you think she is pretty Uncle a a yes indeed very pretty and she dances a look at her critically Uncle you will see that she is a child utterly unconscious of what she is doing.
