鈥淚t is well that I am back,鈥?she declared. BILL FIELDS: Ernest was breaking out into the usual expressions of gratitude, when Theobald continued, 鈥淵ou are interrupting me,鈥?and Ernest鈥檚 heart thumped again. I think this may do for the present. Georgie and Alice, Ernest鈥檚 two children, were evidently quite as one family with the others, and called Mr. and Mrs. Rollings uncle and aunt. They had been so young when they were first brought to the house that they had been looked upon in the light of new babies who had been born into the family. They knew nothing about Mr. and Mrs. Rollings being paid so much a week to look after them. Ernest asked them all what they wanted to be. They had only one idea; one and all, Georgie among the rest, wanted to be bargemen. Young ducks could hardly have a more evident hankering after the water. And without waiting to hear her demure 鈥淏ien, mon oncle,鈥?he escaped to the bureau where he should find the writing materials which did not profane the sacred primness of the salon, and plunged into correspondence.

And it worked so well that over the years, as we grew and built the company, itjust became part of our culture. I guess that was the forerunner of our Saturday morning meetings. Wewanted everybody to know what was going on and everybody to be aware of the mistakes we made. I will dwell no longer on this part of my story. During the spring months of 1861 she kept straight 鈥?she had had her fling of dissipation, and this, together with the impression made upon her by her having taken the pledge, tamed her for a while. The shop went fairly well, and enabled Ernest to make the two ends meet. In the spring and summer of 1861 he even put by a little money again. In the autumn his wife was confined of a boy 鈥?a very fine one, so everyone said. She soon recovered, and Ernest was beginning to breathe freely and be almost sanguine when, without a word of warning, the storm broke again. He returned one afternoon about two years after his marriage, and found his wife lying upon the floor insensible. 鈥淚鈥檓 glad to perceive that this hurried departure is not an elopement.鈥?
