F茅lise murmured a shy acknowledgement. She was too much dazed for coherent thoughts or speech. The discovery of the conditions in which her father lived, and the sudden withering of her faith in him, had almost immediately been followed by her transference into this warm wonder-house of luxury owned and ruled by this queenly young woman, so exquisite in her simple marvel of a dress. The soft lights, the pictures, the elusive reflections from polished wood, the gleam of heavy silver and cut glass, the bowl of orchids on the table, the delicate napery鈥攕he had never dreamed of such though she held herself to be a judge of table-linen鈥攖he hundred adjuncts of a wealthy woman鈥檚 dining room, all filled her with a sense of the unreal, and at the same time raised her poor fallen father in her estimation by investing him with the character of a magician. Dainty food was placed before her, but she could scarcely eat. Lucilla, to put her more at her ease, talked of Corinna and of Brant?me which she was dying to visit and of the quaint Englishman, she had forgotten his name, who had become a waiter.

The business of his stores here whirled along its course automatically, with Hugh who had been so sedulously trained in his father鈥檚 thorough-going school to look after it, and no longer needed his daily supervision. With the income which came to him from years of prudent investment he wanted no more, and he wondered whether the time was come to turn the business into a company. As vendor he would receive a considerable block of shares and yet leave the company with an excellent return for their money. Hugh would probably become general director, and he himself, secure in an ample fortune, would have all his time at his own disposal. Next year, it is true, he would be Mayor of Bracebridge, which would leave him but little leisure, for he had no notion of being anything but a hard-worked head of the town鈥檚 municipal affairs, but after that he could retire from active life altogether, as far as offices and superintendence went.

But it must spread itself considerably: he must be immersed in its atmosphere and lawns and thickets as thoroughly as, hitherto, he had been immersed in the fortunes of the Stores. � "'I hae surely seen your face some gate afore, mon, but whar it's mair than I can cleverly tell.' Thus announced Corinna with lighter fancy. But Martin, serious exponent of truth, explained that the monks, in the desolate times when their Abbey was rebuilding had hewn out these abodes for cells and had dwelt in them many many years; and to prove it, having conferred, before her descent to breakfast, with the excellent Monsieur Bigourdin, he led her to a neighbouring cave, called in the district, Les Grottes鈥擧ence the name of Bigourdin鈥檚 hotel鈥攚hich the good monks, their pious aspiration far exceeding their powers of artistic execution, had adorned with grotesque and primitive carvings in bas-relief, representing the Last Judgment and the Crucifixion. From a dusty two-seater car that drew up noisily at the door, sprang a dusty youth with a reddish face and a little black moustache. � 鈥淐an鈥檛 you see I want you to go away for the afternoon?鈥?said Corinna angrily. Her eyes drooped first. 鈥淧erhaps you really have progressed a bit since we started.鈥? Chapter 4 Communicating
