You permit me to sit down for a moment?鈥?He drew a chair. 鈥淵ou must understand at once,鈥?said he, 鈥渢hat I have nothing against Monsieur Fortinbras. I love him like myself. But, on the other hand, I also love my little niece. She is very simple, very innocent, and does not appreciate the subtleties of the great world. She adores her father.鈥? Among the servants at the Rectory was a remarkably pretty girl named Ellen. She came from Devonshire, and was the daughter of a fisherman who had been drowned when she was a child. Her mother set up a small shop in the village where her husband had lived, and just managed to make a living. Ellen remained with her till she was fourteen, when she first went out to service.

But, do you know, I should not be afraid of her breaking her heart. 鈥淵ou are mistaken, mon enfant,鈥?replied Bigourdin. 鈥淚 have a great regard for her. She has striking qualities. She is a woman of ripe age and much common sense.鈥? Mrs. Errington announced to the whole Maxfield family that Algernon was going away from Whitford, and accompanied the announcement with florid descriptions of the glory that awaited her son, in the highest Ancram style of embellishment.
