Excerpt from A Northern Lily, Vol. 1: Five Years of an Uneventful Life 'On the Home farm some watch the ploughman's furrow, And talk of bullocks and the price of oats.' 'A quarter-past five, ' said Elsie Ross, 'and no post yet.' The letters at Rossie were usually brought in with the kettle at afternoon tea-time - the only post in the day, strange as it may seem to the southern reader. 'Not that I expect anything - but - here it is - and - yes! there is one for me. Not from Fraulein - from I don't know whom.' She opened the letter, which was rather long, and adorned with numerous dashes, flourishes, and points of exclamation; and read it thoughtfully.
