Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1886 edition. Excerpt: ...Kitty really does pass beyond the limits of the commonplace and ordinary. I had a notion they would please each other." Like another of Louis Giddings' friends, Richard had experienced a certain undefined desire to supply what he felt to be wanting to his happiness. Nothing would have pleased him better than to assist at the growth of a serious attachment between these two. But something in his friend's manner when once again he used her name, this time as a possible inducement to alter the provoking resolution the latter had announced on the breaking-up of their camp, baffled his first suspicion. Now, when he met Katharine on his return, the complement of it suddenly affirmed itself to his apprehension and displeased him. " I saw there was ore in that rock," he said to himself, " but I would never have believed the vein could be struck so readily. She is as cool and friendly with me as if we had been rocked in the same cradle." He did not mention his friend's name throughout his visit--an omission which Katharine noticed and wondered at and longed to remedy, without being able to decide to do so. She was not sorry afterward for her reluctance, when the lapse of a few days made it plain that Richard must have gone back to Boston. Mrs. Danforth, watching her more closely than before, as she saw her new-gained brightness fading, her old tendency to solitude and silence reaffirming itself, and the look of wistful longing, which had seldom been absent from her eyes, now deepening in them day by day, puzzled her brain about her more than ever. She began one afternoon, apparently apropos of nothing, to talk about the Nortons, commiserating the father and sharply criticising the mother, whose traits she professed to find vividly reproduced in Richard. ..".show more
