Indeed he could not fail to hear it since it was a very common topic of conversation. Wise acres including Captain Kennedy Shook their Heads Over it. It corroborated their original , that there was some mysterious connection bet Veen the lady of the Castle and her Savage Kinsman whom she was now anxious to keep silent. Langford said nothing but grew the very incarnation of silent . To had Good reason to be miserable for on two occasions when he had called at the Castle the lady had declined to see him. He wrote to her in passionate terms begging an interview. She replied very briefly to be effect that she had determined to see no one except the priest.

It May be necessary some Day to produce it to vindicate my reputation from evil tongues. That task i leave to Yon should anything happen to me but so Long As i live i shall need and require no vindication she took from her Escrito ire a Small manuscript Book and placed it in the priest s hands. Quot while i was writing it Down Quot she continued Quot it All seemed a strange dream horrible unreal and even now it scarcely seems to have happened. And now my mind is made up.

Next Day All was commotion at Craig Castle for its mistress was preparing to go away. Slie spent the morning in arranging Domestic affairs and dismissing with a Liberal Bonus the chief member in of her establishment. The Castle was to remain under the charge of her housekeeper and one or two servants and the Coachman and one Groom she retained to look after the stables. By tie afternoon All preparations were completed Catherine s heavy Luggage dispatched by car to Westport and arrangements made for Catherine herself and her maid to be driven Early next morning to the railway station of the same town. She had just dined in solitary state it Lien a servant brought in a letter. Quot or. Langford s waiting at the door my lady.

Only her maid went with her and the servants by whom she was adored crowded at the door to bid her Goodby. A Quot poor lady Quot said the housekeeper. Quot she s heartbroken entirely and no it was a Beautiful Winter morning the st i was shining brightly and the grass Aud Trees were sparkling through Silver Hoar Frost. Inland Rose the mountains Aud southward shone the Placid Waters of Clow Bay. As she drove through the Demesne to the Lodge Gate Catherine looked on the quiet scene with silent tears. She had grown to love the place and her heart ached to leave it. Quot shall i Ever come Back Quot she thought. Quot god knows perhaps i May find peace and Comtoi k far away As they passed through the Lodge Gates her heart leaped into her Mouth Aud she went deathly Pale. Waiting on the High Road was a Man on horseback whom she recognized at once. Philip Langford. His Pale sad face looked careworn and inexpressibly sorrowful and he stooped in the Saddle As if under the weight of years but when their eyes met his flashed eagerly and he held out his hand with an imploring gesture. Quot drive on Quot said Catherine to the Coachman and averted her face. The Coachman whipped his horses and the car passed swiftly by. Without once looking Back Catherine Clung to the seat a if in mortal terror then unable to control her agitation she leaned Baick and sobbed covering her face with her hands. As if turned to Marble Langford sat watching the car until it disappeared. Even then he remained immovable his face Gray and livid Hia eyes sunken in utter despair. At last with an Effort he Shook off his apathy and Rode slowly homeward to his House by the sea. Axi old Man met him on the Lawn before the door touched his hat Aud looked wistfully up into his face. Quot she has gone yer Quot yes Michael and i believe she will never come Back Quot answered Langford alighting from his horse. Quot did yer Honor spake wid her Quot Langford Shook his head and walked slowly and feebly like a Man death struck into the House. He entered a Small sitting room on the ground floor and falling into a chair sat with his eyes fixed before him looking on vacancy. A face looked into the room that of an old woman. Quot god bless yer Honor Quot the woman said entering the door. Quot have be come Back Aud miss Catherine did be spake wid her Quot he answered her with a despairing look of his dark eyes. Quot she went away without a word Quot cried the old woman. Quot of wires three wira Thruel and she that knew Woll yer heart was breaking for her Sake. May the lord above punish her for turning away in her Pride from the Best Man that Ever Drew Quot Don t say that Nannie Quot said Langford sadly. Quot say rather with me May god bless her and forgive me for what i be loss in my Bourtoire trying to Luce together the terrible experiences of the last few Days and to write them Down. Even now they scarcely seem real. They rate ice seem like those flashes which haunt us when we Are suddenly awakened from strange dreams. Lest they should fade altogether As dream memories do i am going to recall them As vividly As i can then when i have committed them to paper i shall give the writing to the Only Friend i have left my Good priest who loves me like a father. In his care j know it will be sacred but if Ever occasion should which god forbid it May be my justification. Before i proceed to my narrative however let me frankly own to myself and to any one who May hereafter read these words that i have been justly punished for my own frivolous Ness and Folly. Like Many another thoughtless woman i played with fire Little thinking that it might some Day imperil my life a a Honor. A Young girl alone in the world and with no guide but her own Caprice cannot be too circumspect in her relations with the opposite sex. I so far from being circumspect was Foolhardy. Treated like a spoiled child idolized and flattered on every hand i craved Only for sympathy and adoration and i was careless in Awakening feelings to which i never intended seriously to respond. Although not at heart a coquette 1 certainly like one and i have paid the penalty. All that i can urge in my own defense is that my position was a Peculiar one and that i had Little or no experience. Brought up in England where people were so much More sophisticated and commonplace i was placed under extraordinary in the jii st of a s i Cieto a hich was to a great extent unc Orve Vional. My suitors gentlemen in e a real appearance had All the Strong iii and prejudices of the half Civilia cd. They could not understand m in i Friendship. Frauk Nesk for cordiality Aud camaraderie for live. A kii id word a gentle look a pressure of t he hand was interpreted instantly i into the warmest of sent Imei s. Thus it was that i began so in fort namely with Niy Cousin Patrick Blake. I was really any for him i wanted to show him that i was truly his Kinswoman and of fore i knew what i was doing i had 3ti>dc him think that i was in love with him Aud that he had Only to ask and to have. He did ask Aud i had to be cruel. As the Issue showed i was not cruel enough. Then again another consideration weighed with me. I Felt rightly or a wrongly that most of those who pursued me including my Savage Cousin. My my Legal protector. From this step it i was deterred by two considerations my own wish to retain my Freedom and or Langford s irritating Pertinacity. Let me be quite Frank. My feelings toward or. Langford were very different from those which i entertained for or. Blake. In every possible respect the two men were a contrast to each other. My Cousin despite his Good looks was what i have described him to be an untutored boy. The slave of Low passions and coarse vices. Or. Langford on the contrary was a perfect gentleman handsome fascinating even and without a stain upon his character. Never under any circumstances. Could i have hesitated Between these two suitors. One of them repelled me in every Way while the other attracted me continually. I will now without further preamble come to the occurrences of the last fortnight and to that extraordinary adventure with which they culminated. My persecutions had ceased my Days were gliding uneventfully along and i had almost forgotten my Cousin s existence when news was brought to me that he had returned from a Long visit to Dublin. A Little nervous and anxious to ascertain if i was forgiven i contrived to drive past the inn where he resided and to catch a glimpse of him face to face. His manner relieved All my fears. He seemed Light hearted and merry and i thou Gli. Quot i Iris cured and i Shan t to any that evening or. f re called upon me Aud referring in mentally to the fact of my Cou iii s it r. In again asked me to 1 come lis Wii Quot you know my Deci sili Quot 1 replied and really your Ruev a of like subject is a Little Iliou Otanous Quot Why do Yon still to Many me Quot he asked fixing those sad eyes of Bis upon me. Quot do you hate me so much Quot if i hated you Quot i replied Quot i would not receive you Here Quot then laughingly i added Quot i really believe that my Cousin Savag As lie is loves me better than fou do Quot Why do you say that Quot he asked gently. Quot Well he is thorough at any rate. He does not hang after my heels and Aud carry. He is like one of the old knights who loved desperately and tried to seize by Force what he could not win by favor. At any rate he is it avas a foolish speech As the Issue proved. Two Days afterwards i drove into Westport and cashed a Check at the Bank. Then As the afternoon was Fine i determined to drive Over to Ball Croy Dine with an old Friend of mine mrs. Tourne and return Home next morning. I apprehended no danger and had almost forgot that 1 had an enemy in the world. Tie Sun was Low Down in the Western sky when leaving behind us the Village of Mulrany we drove along the desolate Road which winds through the mountains of Mayo following the Long Arm or Estuary of the sea beyond which Rise other mountains culminating in the highest Peak of the Island of Achill. To our right the mountains Rose precipitously into Granite peaks which shone Clear and distinct in the Rosy Light. Not a sound disturbed the Solitude save now and again the cry of a sea Gull or the faint Quot honk honk Quot of the wild Goose winging Hirsh up in the air. To be continued. I while to Hafl scene was taking place at Langford House father John o Donnell was seated alone by the fireside in his cottage at Mulrany smoking his pipe and perusing with Many doleful shakes of the head the manuscript which Catherine had committed to his care. And it ran thus. Chapter pm. The House is quite stir every one has retired to rest and i am sitting Quot wily to you still refuse to met try my Quot did so because i was a wealthy woman and i Felt a malicious pleasure in dangling my Fortune before them and making them believe that it was attainable. All the time i was saying in my own mind Quot i mean to amuse myself with the foolish creatures As much As i please but until i find a Man who loves me for myself alone i will never this might have been All very Well in civilized England. Among the wild mountains of Western Ireland it was playing a desperate game. When Patrick Blake first offered to marry me i was amused. He seemed to think the assault so easy. Even Wien All Hia pent up passion broke Stormly non me i was still amused Aud even flattered. His threats seemed those of an ill conditioned Schoolboy. I could not realize that they had an serious meaning. I discovered very quickly that i was wrong and tried in vain by gentle measures to repair the mischief i bad done. I still Felt sorry for him knowing that i had inherited what he might otherwise have possessed and i wished to show him All the kindness in my Power. This amiability i think now was a mistake. I realized my position for the first time after that first attack in the Woods. I knew by instinct that my assailant was no vulgar robber Aud i identified him almost immediately As my Cousin Patrick. What his reason was for so apparently aimless an assault i could not understand but i had Heird that he was in league with desperate men and i called in the Protection of the police. It was at this juncture that another suitor for my hand or. Philip Langford interposed As a possible protector. He had already proposed to me and i had declined his offer. He now renewed his suit with tenfold Fervour. I had to answer him As before. But with a woman s perversity i answered him so tenderly As to retain him As a sort of unaccredited Cavalier. Instead of dismissing him at once and forever i deceived myself and him with the will of the Wisp of Friendship. Then came the second attack on my person from which As i believed i was saved by the Man whose offer of marriage i had More than once rejected. Again. I seemed to recognize the work of my Cousin and i remembered his words a Quot if you refuse to have me you shall have no other Man 1&Quot terrified beyond measure. I was almost tempted to take or.
