He went away bearing with a Semi consciousness of a Sweet influence caught from her. The Light of Lier eyes the Melody of Lier voice with its slight up country peculiarities and the gleam of her Pale Gold hair lingered in mind. He walked along in the Shady Street under the China Trees and the Moss Hung live Oaks with eyes Lieut upon the ground.

White us Lime and hard As a pavement. The carriages end a cd Bonaventure through a wide Gateway passing at once into an atmosphere of simile and solemn pity. Huge live Oaks spread their arms above the Road and trailed their Long drapery of funereal mobs to within a few feet of the ground. Many weather stained tombs and a number of snowy Cenotaph were scattered through the dark Grove. The Breeze from Over Whitemarsh brought us bid Ash breath under the canopy Aud Shook the clumps of undergrowth and the Long streamers of air plane a Broad Creek or Ann of the River in which the tide was at the flood came in sight at the end of Long vistas shining with the bluish gleam of Silver. By eve eur Here in this heavy Shade with tile Breeze washing through there was a pervading befit a palpitating current of summer Fervour which thrilled through the blood like Strong wine. Rosalie loaned out of the Carriage Aud for a moment colonel Talbot from place in another vehicle saw her Bright hair tossed about Lier forehead by the wind and her Happy face turned by merest a Hance toward Lim. The next motion of thou fringe shut out the vision. He turned voids nearest companion a mrs. Farley tall dignified Aud a widow and Hall closing eyes said a a miss Chenier is is singularly Beautied girl i a yes quite pretty and Sweet a mrs. Farley replied a Maud i daresay colonel Talbot smiled As if he thoroughly understood the guarded phrasing of Ilia companion s speech. He added a she s extremely Clever too or interrupted mrs. Farley. A a Yesu i should said that but she is very infesting she Nae Clec Iaea opinions of her own and expresses them with a sincerity and readiness As refreshing As an up country a ooh is she Strong minded a a not in the sense you suggest. She is not obtrusive. She is charmingly naive and original in conversation taking one unaware with her questions and suggestions like a child. I suspect that she a a genuine Mountain Violet fresh Sweet and a done to colonel Talbot a cried mrs. Farley a keep some of the adjectives for future use. I can interpret your feelings without any further waste of words. A a your interpretation would lie As far from Correct As any guess of the pragmatists who pretend to explain the Beautiful myths of the old poets a he said looking away and stroking Long Mustache. I should not turn your poetry into prose at All a she added softly a i should give it a very deep and tender a deep and tender a he repeated a those Are adjectives i believe. You May Reserve them for future use. I imagine miss Chenier has a Mountaineer for a Lover a Strong bold Young fellow of the True North georgian a ooh no doubt of it but Shell soon forget now a she replied. A girls usually do Quot he said dryly. They All got out of their carriages and were soon scattered about among the tombs and Flower Beds of that incomparably Beautiful old place. Rosalie sat Down alone on the verge of the Bluff in the Shade of a tree. She who from childhood had revealed in wind was fascinated with this steady Breeze from the sea. The Broad areas of Silver and Emerald spread out before her the Bright sky above and the picturesque clumps of Palmetto Trees in the distance suited the mood into which the drive through the cemetery had led her. It chanced that her friends wandered away from where she sat so that she was quite alone when a tall Man approached and stopped within a few feet of her. She instantly recognized Frank Ellis notwithstanding changed appearance. He was no longer a Mountaineer or a a Moon Shiner Quot in dress being fashionably and tastefully Clad. He bore in hand a Small Cane. It seemed that he did not at once make sure of right to speak. Rosalie had not changed much it is True but she hardly looked like the coarsely dressed Miller girl of the a pocket a As she sat there arrayed in the latest and most elegant style of walking dress. She reseat once and a Quick flush came into her Cheeks. A nah miss Chenier a he said in those old fluent Tours so persuasive and Lodious. A you have not forgotten i Hope. A a ooh no or. Ellis i am glad to see you a she responded taking a step or two Forward and holding out her hand to . A Are you directly from the Mill a a no a he said. A i have been Here for some time. I am a resident of Savannah now but you were the last person i was expecting to meet today you Are not alone he had taken her hand and was hold aug it while he looked Down into her upturned Beautiful face All Rosy with the emotion of thus unexpectedly meeting a Friend from the a a pocket with news from Home possibly. A then you Haven to see papa recently a she inquired without noticing own question a no a he answered a i had trouble wit i the Revenue men. They destroyed manufactory and i had a close struggle for a i she said a i saw it in a paper. A a a it a quite settled he added. A i compromised with t hemp bribed them in other words Arni so am quite free Guiu i have opened a brokers office Bere in bespoke with the confident Freedom of a Man Well grounded Iii Bis own estimation and full of As Suranee that he should get Oil Well with others he stood erect Strong defiant handsome. His eyes had lost the old restlessness Ami watchfulness. As they stood thus he holding Lier hand they made a very striking picture and a very strange one to the eyes of miss Mildred Fain who just then approached them and stopped As she noticed the stranger. Rosalie a quickly withdrew her baud and til rued All flushed As she was Iii time to see tile look of half Surprise half utter cation which passed across the face of Mildred a come Here Mildred a she said Quick in a this is a Friend from the a pocket we met Here by the merest a self consciousness of manner rather than self consciousness in fact put her Iii a wrong Light before both Ellis and miss Fain. It was a if she had been discovered in some compromising situation when in truth she was wholly unaware of any improper appearance connected with what her Friend had just seen. At this moment aunt Marguerite joined them. Her Sharp Little eyes recognized Ellis promptly and a gleam a1 most malignant shot out from them. She stopped Short close to and with a Quick Glauce from head to foot took in the great improvement in personal appearance. Her mind worked with that swiftness and certainty so valuable in a sudden crisis. The first impulse was to ignore and hurry Rosalie Awny from presence but caution whispered tier that this might arouse that perversity for Young gins no Rancon themselves in Rove Are noted. Then too miss Fain was present and there might be a scene. She changed her manner in a moment. A Why or. Ellis this is quite a Surprise a she said in that cold half careless tone which is used toward one who is a Mere valueless acquaintance. She gave her hand however and turned toward miss Fain but she had walked away a i am glad to see you looking so Well mrs. Roosevelt a he said throwing into voice an irresistible music. A your summer sojourn in the North must have been pleasant is or. Roosevelt Well a a yes quite thank she dared not Trust herself to say More. He was ready however and went easily Forward into Graceful talk draw aug her out in spite of herself and after a manner winning non her interest if not her respect. He was a charming talker in every Way and knowledge of h Aman nature was Broad and accurate. Colonel Talbot and mrs. Farley had seated themselves on a the Bole of a tree Cut Down in the course of some improvement of the grounds and were surveying the wide expanse of water islands and marshes through an opera Glass. While mrs. Farley was thus amusing herself she chanced to bring the Glass to Bear on the group by the River composed of Rosalie and Young Ellis he was holding her band Ami gazing intently Down Luto her face. It was a very suggestive situation. Mrs. Farley did not know who the Young Man was but Aile coaids tie sure he was a Lover she thought. After looking for a moment she handed the Glass to colonel Talbot and pointing in the direction said a see if Yon can make out the Young Man with miss Chenier on the Bluff he looked and when he had succeeded in finding the proper line of vision he started not perceptibly to any one but himself and watched the Little tableau develop a has been described. A it is some Friend to miss Chenier a he presently said a mrs. Roosevelt came upon the scene a but i do not know . He must be a visitor to Savannah i think a northerner a but he is not a northerner a said mrs. Farley. A this face and manner deny the possibility. He May be a North georgian colonel Talbot lowered the Glass and looked at companion. A the would be her Mountain Lover then a he said smiling complacently and turning the opera Glass Over and Over Iii hand. A Well neither you nor i used care As to she replied. A but i do wonder who he she took the Glass and looked again. A nah mrs. Roosevelt has joined them a she exclaimed. A the is no stranger to her that is Plain he is strikingly handsome Dis Tinguee a military Man possibly i wish i could hear what he is saying. No doubt it is vastly mrs. Farley was a Clever woman and she rarely did or said anything no matter How apparently Light and unstudied without having some Well defined object in View. She had begun to suspect that colonel Talbot Felt some sort of tender interest in miss Chenier and she was now endeavouring to Surprise into something like a confession of it. But he was too reserved and self poised to be caught in Lier slender net. He knew her better than she thought and he played with her webs without seeming aware of their existence. Ellis did not remain Long at Bonaventure. After a Short conversation with mrs. Roosevelt and her Niece he went away but not before Rosalie had invited to Call it the mansion. Chapter letters. Xii a / jibe kissed her Uncle. One Day Rosalie s Banjo came by express. Liis was in response to a request she Laid embodied in a letter to her father after she had striven in vain to make the Fine old piano in mrs. Roosevelt a parlor banish her desire for the simpler instrument. No doubt it was a very foolish aet to kiss the Banjo but she did it with genuine passion. Had it not Beau her beloved companion from her childhood wus it not one of the old Mills inmates throughout her Sweet crude life Iii the a pocket Quot ought it not to share her happiness in this am pier life at the Roosevelt mansion she turned its keys she swept its strings. Its pure Cut through air never Jerore Naa pair Cater with music so plebeian. The sounds brought Quick tears to her eyes and her lips quivered. It would be unjust to say that any foolish sentiment caused her emotion. A very natural homesickness had preyed upon her mind at intervals since coming to Savannah and of course every letter from the a a pocket and every other special reminder of the old Mill aggravated the malady and it was with a feeling of Relief that Rosalie turned from the Banjo to read one addressed to her Uncle from or. Edgar Julian. A there is something that May interest you a or. Roosevelt had said As he handed her this missive postmarked at some town in the South of France. A the latter part of it is really meant for you to read. I judge you will be charmed with if is from or. she exclaimed almost joyfully As she glanced at the signature. A lie is in the South of France sure enough. And such a Long letter Quot she kissed her nude in thankful anticipation of some news from a die chateau Chenier a and ran off to the nearest window seat to read. Or. Roosevelt stood for a moment contemplating her. This was the first time fascinating adopted daughter had Ever kissed . He was a shrewd old fellow he suspected that kiss As timing meant to go Clear across the Atlantic. He thought it not Worth while to make any remarks however and with a Bland smile on Semi jewish face he went away to office. Rosalie a hand trembled As she held the letter. Her eyes ran rapidly Over the Clear rather Small writing scarcely the half of which had anything to do with or. Roosevelt a a business evidently or. Edgar Julian had done valiant and valuable work in behalf of the Railroad schemes of employers for lie had sent Back the contract of the a dutch Syndicate duly approved signed and sealed. A matter so completely finished needed very few words of explanation. But turning from Railroad diplomacy to something which seemed to in Terest pleasantly he wrote As follows a i promised miss Chenier that i would look up the old estate in Provence to which her father thought he might have some it May be said Here that Rosalie could not remember any such Promise a i have seen in chateau Cheniere it still bears the name a most Lovely old ruin in the midst of vineyards and Fig Orchards and rimmed round with Olive crowned Hills. The chateau itself is not inhabitable save that one Tumble Down Wing has been kept As a pretence of shelter for a family of peasants of a very order. I should say but the place has been a grand one. A if one had lived a few Hundred years ago one would have loved such a Home for it was then a fair Castle in the Center of the worlds most charming Region. The estate is quite valuable even now and its ownership seems in doubt. After All miss Theu Iery a father May be the rightful claimant of he could establish title a few thousand dollars judiciously expended would make the a whole place a Garden of Beauty. This climate is enchanting. I should like to Settle Here with a Colony of own picking the wind and the Sunshine and the fragrance of. Things fill one with a sense of the value of Mere existence but the people Are dry Aud stolid on the one hand or gushing and monstrously inclined to exaggeration on the other. I hold that no country whose Labouring classes Wear sabots is Safe to live in. It has the appearance of decay in its last stage sandals Bare feet Ami wooden shoes Are not the accompaniments of Progress. In walking about among the people Aud the buildings Here i am constantly Rem aided of ashes. A indeed i Tun not sure but that the fervent Sun of this climate has slowly burned up everything. Such Energy As we have in our great West might not to Abb to resist it through Many generations especially if we should fall into this wine drinking habit. Everywhere one goes Here one sees wine used like water Aud a great Deal of it is a villainous sour stuff unfit for hogs to drink they Tell us that Liis Region was once Tim Center of european literary culture that Here the fragrant Dregs of roman civilization and through the roman Tho greek artistic refinements were left Over after Italy had become a cinder. These Lemon Groves Aud vineyards these old Chateaux these Stony Hills and drowsy valleys ought to be the Ideal Region for the poets but it seems they could not stay the climate made dust of them by a dreamy process of slow combustion. Some of the old picturesque things and some of the poetical customs still linger Here und there is a sort of Rose of Provence odor and Dewiess on the night air which quite compensates for the daytime sul triness. A Elf you deem it Worth while you May let miss Chenier read this. She spoke to of Provence Aud Lier father s attachment for this particular Region Aud while i hardly feel at Liberty to write to Lier directly i have hoped that this method of sending her a Mere sketch of Lur ancestral country might not be thought impertinent. A ale chateau Chenier seems to be the oldest place in this immediate neighbourhood not Only on account of its ruined condition but judging from the character of its architecture.
