Some mollify, some draw, some Ulcers clear, She shrank from wearing the name of the man who had confined her in this terrible asylum. It seemed as though old Lady Farrington felt, when the law-suit was won, that her mission was ended. She died happily, at peace with every one, in the following year. Her son, the new baronet, Sir Herbert Farrington, settled at the Hall for a time; but restlessness soon took possession of him, and he pined for the wilds which had so long been his home. When last heard of by his son Herbert he was at the head of an exploring party somewhere near Lake Tanganyika, and meant to be absent for some years. 鈥楾hat is pure sentimentalism,鈥?said the matter-of-fact lawyer. 鈥楾here must be a limit to that sort of thing, or the world would come to an end.鈥?

Perhaps few girls can say, or ought to say, 鈥榊es鈥?at once, without time for consideration. When the offer came, Laura鈥檚 first impulse was, naturally, to go to her Mother for advice; her second impulse was to go to her friend-sister. It is not hard to realise what the thought must have been to Charlotte of losing this dearly-loved companion,鈥攈er room-mate and the constant sharer of her thoughts and interests from very infancy; nor is it difficult to believe how bravely she would put aside the recollection of herself, viewing the question from Laura鈥檚 standpoint alone.

Sometimes I feel so, Mrs. Conrad admitted. "If Oliver were alive I should feel more like asserting my rights, but now all ambition has left me. If I should institute proceedings I should be compelled to return to New York, where everything would remind me of my sad loss. No, my dear friend, your advice is no doubt meant for the best, but I prefer to leave Mr. Kenyon in ignorance of my whereabouts and to keep away from his vicinity. You don't want me to go away, Florette, do you?"
