Not illustrated. 1874 edition. Excerpt: ...man, only his heart is packed away rather out of reach somehow. I sup iose he knows where it is to be found.. don't. Is he well, Duke, your cousin, or uncle, or whatever you call him?" I was unable to give a very good account of Sir George's health. "He's ill--that's what you mean. I was sure of it.
