a friend were spending a ipiiet evening
by the tire, ehotttssflj 'ind reading. Mrs.
Burnett's friend, he lt understood, sat
throughout the eveut lu on armchair
by the lire and did not leave her place
until all was over, so that, as lu the
case of conjurers, there could have
been "no deception" on her part.
Mrs. Hiirnett went in the course of
the evening to her desi; anil wrote a
letter She signed, folded, directed,
sealed and stamped it mid stood lt up
against a silver cigarette hos OS the
