Not illustrated. 1881 edition. Excerpt: ...seem like a fool to Ginevra when I do try to talk with her. All my thoughts are over here with you." "And do you suppose I don't think of you also? Why, I never see a man who can hold a candle to you, Cecil; and you know that perfectly well--you great, conceited, handsome, blue-eyed boy! I'd give a good deal to stand in Mrs. Ginevra's shoes; and I don't mind saying it, either!" "And yet you would marry my brother and make me miserable for life!" says Cecil, sentimentally. "I don't see how it will alter our position. But I've had another row with the old woman, Cecil." "Indeed!" he exclaims, all alive at the intelligence. "How is that?" "She wrote me word last week that she and the Earl wished to come up to town for a few days, and, as the house in Portman Square is in curlpapers, she would bring him here. Cool, wasn't it? Of course, the Earl and Countess mean her ladyship's two women and his lordship's two men; and I was to stow the whole lot of them away-in this little bonbom1iere! Why, every servant I have would have given me warning. Besides, I knew the reason the old cat wanted to come here was only that she might sniff after you and me. I think she smells a rat, Cecil!" "I hope not," replies Cecil, devoutly hoping that she does. "Why has she never called upon your wife, eh? She has never even mentioned her name in her letters to me." "Why has she never done anything to make herself agreeable to me or mine all my life long?" demands Cecil, in his turn. "Because she bates me, Cornelia! ' I told you so from the beginning." "Fancy! hating you!..".
