All Mrs. Mostyn said was true j Lucy
Ilderton was now a rich lady, and her
wealth came from the odd old gentleman
with whom she had traveled three months
before. When she opened, the lawyer's
letter which had been forwarded to her
by Aunt Esther, she learned this astound
ing fact and had hardly recovered her
surprise when she reached home. The
lawyer's letter was a catalogue of riches
and wealth. Lucy had a handsome fur
nished house in Chester Square, contain
ing a gallery of ancient masters, folios of
drawings and engravings, cabinets of Ve.j
netian glass and china, and stores of fine
old plate. She had horses and carriages,
a large estate in Cumberland, and a yacht
lying at Cowes. Mr. Kenrick had left her
all he had, and had written her a letter
which touched her inexpressibly. It was
dated just two weeks before he died, and
was as follows :
My Dear Child: I run ill, nnd I begin to
see that I ahull not lie arile to keep my appoint
ment with you, but that it is much more likely
that before the 15th of September I shall havo
sot out on my long; Journey from which no
travelor returns. 1 havo made my will; I have
loft you all that I possess. I have done this be
cause you are to mo the llvhur representative

or any of the pictures, engravings, or books, or

Lucy and Aunt Esther wer reading
this letter for the hundredth time during
the last four or five week. Lucy's eyes
were full of tears. Aunt Esther did not
Khe aaid as she always said when she
read it : . "What very odd ideas the poor
dear gentleman had," and then, as Lucy
did not make any reply, she added, "But
then, you fee, if he had lieen 'like all the
rect of the world he would not have left
what he had to you."
"What kind ideas he had!" said Lucy, I
never thought of it lirfore; but do you see
why he-tells me to take lessons and read
"To improve your mind, my love," re
plied Aunt Esther, sententiously.
"Partly, no doubt, but more for the sake
of preventing my wasting time in useless
thoughts. Don't you see that he had
heard of what was likely to happen
at LitchbVId, and that he wanted me to
work hard tliut 1 might forget it the soon
er? He tells me to think kindly on him
the loth of June. I think most kindly of
him every hour of my life."
"And Lucy," said Aunt Esther, coming
nearer toher and watching her very close
ly, "what about Mr. Merivale? I hope
you are forgetting ';."
Lucy shook her head.
"Are you happy, dear?"
"Not lUxiut that yet. Pon't let us talk
of it." -
Aunt Esther had known that she could
l-eceive no other answer. She saw how
very unhappy the poor child was and
how bravely she struggled to lie herself
Lucy had seep her future home, and
many u time she fingered her own little
collection of books, and hoped the books
in Chester Square would not treat them
with too great contempt. She had seen
Mr. Kmrick's books. They were in a
great big library, in stately Ijookeascs
which hid every bit of the walls, and shut
in the wire-latticed doors. They were
bound in Russian leather, or materials
which the most alarming housekeeper
told her were known as mottled calf and
tree calf or velum very ptiff, solid, and
untakedownable they looked. "Never
mind," said Lucy, when she thought
of them, "I'll read you most faithfully
two hours daily, and I'll try to buy you
some companions likely to lie agreeable to
So much for the books; but when she
thought of Mrs. Lishman, the house
keeper, and Mr. Sargill, the butler, she
was terrified, for she did not see how by
any effort of mind or will she could make
herself acceptable to them. Both were
old, dressed as stiffly and as handsomely
as the books; both were full of old fash
ioned observances, and both evidently had
their opinions fully formed on every sub
ject. ... , ...
Then caui.o ,tha departure from High
.g'ate, and the last Walk around the little
garden, three times as big as the drawing
room, where tlie flowers would not grow
properly. Lucy had a conservatory in
Chester Square, which the gardener filled
weekly with flowers, whose bright blos
soms were crushed against the glass that
the passers-by might see what a blaze of
flowers there was in that house a wealth
of which those living within were for the
most part unaware for he only treated
them to a back prospect.
- Chapter IV.
At first Lucy's life) in Chester Square
was rather trying. She was so afraid of
the servants that the chief aim of her ex
istence was to try to make them not no
tice that she was in the house; but there
were so many of them, and the furniture
was so old fashioned and stately, her foe
sank so deep in the soft carpets, the rooms
were so large and strange to her, that she
feared she should never . feel at home
there. Then, too, she could not rend her
grave, well-bound books which were to do
her so much good, without finding her at
tention wander, nor could she find a taste
for china, or think her engravings any
thing but dull, or her pictures anything
but dismal and dingy! People' came
sometimes and looked at them most rev
erently; the housekeeper, too, told her
they were enormously valuable, and ev
ery time she was told so she went and
looked at them again, fervently wishing
that she could see their beauty. There
was a cabinet of antique jewelry and this
came more within the range of Lucy 's
comprehension. One day Iie was dull,
for Aunt Esther had gone to pay the Mos
tyn's a short visit, nnd she herself had
lieen dutifully reading for an hour or two
in the library and was tired. She opened
this cabinet, and while wondering at the
strangeness and beauty of some of the
necklaces and bracelets, began to put on
one after the other, until at last she mode
herself look more like an Indian idol than
anything else. She soon forgot what she
was doing, and ceased to take any inter
est in the contents of her cabinet, while
her thoughts turned to Hazelwood and all
that happened there. Then she thought
of the poor girl whose name she had tak
en, and whose place she seemed to till,
and wondered if she had ever lieen in this
room, and had ever decked herself out in
these jewels, and if Mr. Kenrick, whose
portrait when a young man was hanging
on the wall above her, had stood by ad
miring her, and telling her how beautiful
she looked and how dearly he loved her?
Her portrait, too, was there by Sir Thomas
Lawrence, and many an hour Lucv snent'
in looking at it. She, still decked in her
jewels was earnestly looking at it now
when the door opened quietly, and Mrs.
Lishman came in. Lucy blushed; she
was ashamed that the still' and formidable
Mrs. Lishman should .see her-thus bediz
ened with beads and bracelets, and hasti
ly becan to remove them, lookimr
lyat Mrs..Lishman's face the while, to
see 11 inai goou woman despised tier my

and kindness in her eves.. Thnv nm-o
grey and honest, but usually very Cold-,
looking". Her tac. though ertronrly
marked, was not unjleain?. Her hair
waa twisted into tight. nDrornprntniftinr
little knots, and then itawj-rM or tinned

Ird beyond her widow-like plan cap

ways wore a black silk dress and a net
handkerchief fastened with di"""
pin which Mr. Kenrick had gives brr
but whenever this pin was Lot, everyone
in the bouse, from the Butler, whose fig
ure did not lend itself readily to aiaitang,
to the kitchen-maid, searched high and
low until it was found. -
"Thank you for thinking-of met I am
rather dull," said Lucy gratefully. "I
was looking at that picture,-" and still
she stripped off her adornments me by
one, hoping all the time that Mrs. Lib
man had not seen them.
"That picture is the very moral' ol you.
"You know, Mrs. Lishman, that is why
Mr. Kenrick left this house to me. Jki you
mind his having left his property to tuaf
asked Lucy, humljy.
"That deiiends." replied Mrs. Lishman
guardedly. "I think not ; but I'll see how
things go on before I pronounce s judg
ment." "Mrs. Lishman, Mr. Kenrick told ma he
wished me to keep everything as he had
it. You will help ine to obey him won't
"Naturally, Miss Clavering, I shall t-ee
to that," said Mrs. Lishman, and her tate
of mind was indecipherable.
"If you have any spare time, Mrs. Lish
man, I wish you would go through tho
house with me and ;tell me a little about
Mr. Kenrick where lie used to sit. I mean,
what he did, and as much as you can about
I'There is not much to tell aliout him,
Miss. He was, so to speak, a very inward
"I thought he talked very openly when
I saw him."
"He took to you, you Bee, Miss, along of
the likeness. It. was not hiff way to strike
up with strangers readily, J can assure
you of that."
Mrs. Lishman took Lucyinto all the
rooms, and after aliout. an hour p)ent in
this way she condescended to say, "So far
as I can see at present. Miss Clavering, I
think you and I might do very well to
"I nm so glad to hear you say that!"
cried Lucy and truly this semi-gracious
speech did make her very happy. The
last room they entered was a little sitting
room upstairs in which Lucy often spent
an hour or two.
"I often see you here, Miss Clavering,"
said Mrs. Lishman. "It was, furnished
to be young Mrs. Kenrick's boudoir, I be
lieve. It was before my time, of course,
but I have heard all about it."
"But," said Lucy, "was the wedding so
near? I never knew that!"
"Mrs. Hugh Kenrick, ma'am, as was to
have been, died most unfortunately just a
short fortnight before her wedding-day."
"How very dreadful!"
"Yes, it was a pity! Not that I am one
that holds much with marrying; but then
this was a wedding as had a right to be,
for they both loved each other like like
nothing I can think of strong enough to
compare them to," said MrBfLishman.
"There was no looking to anything but
their love and respect fyrfa$iv ether in
either of them. That made him have a
good right to fret for her when she was
How Mrs. Lishman's words struck
home! Lucy knew that she had "no
right" to fret for Robert Merivale, for hia
love for hor was nothing like so strong as
hia love for money and jxisition. Nev
ertheless her heart knew its own bitter
ness! Just at this moment a card was brought
to Lucy. Mrs. Lishman watched her face
as she read the name on it, and was sure
it was the name of some one whom she
did not wish to see. "Sir Richard Meri
vale." Lucy looked at the man who
brought it, as if to see whether any way
of escape remained open to her.
"The gentleman is in tho library, mad
am," said he. "He told me to say that he
desired to see you on a matter of pressing
Her impulse was to refuse to see him,
but on second thoughts she went. Sir
Richard Merivale was all but a stranger
to her. A grey-haired, brisk little man of
sixty stood in tho library, hat in hand.
"I must apologize, madam, for this intru
sion, but it was my duty to come, and I
came, and I hope before we -part you will
say that I did right."
Lucy bowed; she felt that she could not
"Upon my word, young lady, you are
very pleasantly situated here. Very! I
like these Chester Square houses particu
larly; I always did. Well, I had better
tell you why I came business first, and
pleasure after. It has come to my knowl
edge that my nephew, Robert Merivale,
was very much attached to you, and, hon
estly speaking, I don't wonder at it ; but
that he was kept back from proposing to
you by a strong feeling that I should not
approve of such a step. I knew nothing
alxmt it at the time, or I could easily
have set that right, indeed I should not
havo disliked the task of making his offer
for him. He, however, said nothing to
me, but let you go away without securing
you. Nay, more, he says he wrote to tell
you how fond he was of you, but that he
had a Turk of an uncle, who insisted on
his marrying some lady of good position
in the county. He ought to have spoken
to me; he never did. I call that carry
ing respect and duty, and that kind of
thing, to fanaticism ; but he has suffered
well for it! I did not know what Was go
ing wrong, but he became more and more
dismal every day, and at last the whole
thing came out, and he and 1 laid our
heads together, and thought if I came and
ate humble-pie for a thing, by the way,
which was no fault of mine, for your name
was never mentioned between us, you
would forgive him and take -him into fa
vor again. Now will you?" . - .. ,
All Lucy's attempts to interrupt this
long speech had been cut short; but noMr
he was looking steadily at her and wait
ing for an answer. "Come, now,;say you
will forgive him. He is as fond df yoa as
a man can be; he always was, and ia
wretchedly unhappy!" ; '
"lam verysorryhe is unhappy," he
gan Lucy. ' ' ;
, "I was sure you would be I toid him-
"Yes, but I do not wish to ever see him
again. I must refuse to do that."
"What? Piqued? But have t not iust
tola yoa that it la my fault I He tuuran
derstood my wishes; he paid too great re.
pert to them. I really think you ought
to forgive him."
"You may say that I forgive him en
tirely. In fact I do not know that I have
any right to be angry with him."
-Oh. yes, you have. He had no right to
go ao far ami then turn hack. Now do
tell me one thing had you any liking for
Lucy blushed crimson. It cost her a
struggle, but she suid "I liked him very
"I admire your sincerity; then tell me
whether if he had offered at that time,
you would have accepted him?
"Sir Richard, it is of no use to talk of
this now! He did not offer to me. He
told me then tliut he could not give up his
chances of advancement for my sake. He
took his line then, and I, of course, accept
ed it. Nothing could ever make me feel
for him now as I did before."
"Not when you hear what I tell you I"
"No, not when I hear what you tell
"I think that if you saw him if you
heard his justification from his own lips
"I have his letter. I never could like
him again after reading that. I must ask
you to say no more on this subject. My
mind is made up. Nothing can change
"He really was a most confounded fool!"
said Sir Richai-d, heartily. "He wrote
that letter without consulting me. People
call me a cross old curmudgeon; but I
am certain of one thing, and that is that
I can take a generous view far more
quickly than they can. Well, but child,
don't be so very firm and decided. Peo
ple stiffen themselves up,nnd think it vei-y
grand and fine to be unforgiving, when
a little kindness and generosity would be
for their own happiness too."
"I could never lie happy with anyone
I did not respect, mid I do not respect
"If you saw him, you might believe
him, when you do not lielieve me."
"I do believe you, but you have said
nothing to make me alter my opinion of
the past. It is past leave it let us say
no more aliout it."
"But I want you to Iks my niece," plead
ed Sir Richard. "You will lie coming
down to Litchfield some day soon, won't
"Yes, but you must excuse me if I de
cline to see your nephew when I am
"Oh, no, now don't be so hard! It is
not your real nature to be so. I can see
This was true. Lucy's heart was plead
ing Sir Richard's cause with all its might
She found the battle a very hard one.
"You will be happier if you do as I ask
you," said he.
"Oh! please Sir Richard, leave me,"
cried pooi-JLucy, piteously. "You must not
say any more indeed I will never see
He left her, and hardly had he gone lie
fore she flung herself into a corner of the
sofa and sobbed convulsively the strain
had been almost beyond her strength.
Before many minutes had passed, the
door opened once more. Lucy did not
look up; her eyes were full of tears, her
heart very sore, her head very weary ;
her only thought was, "He has come
back. Oh ! I cannot, cannot bear to go
through all that again. How cruel!"
Some one came towards her, flung him
self on his knees took her hand. She
turned and looked through her tears it
was Robert Merivale himself!
"Lucy, my dear, dear Lucy, you do love
tne a little! You are crying. You are
unhappy. Have some pity on me. Have
some belief in me. I have loved you, and
you only, ever since I first saw you."
Then she sprang to her feet, and tore
her hand away from him. "Spare me!"
she said faintly. "Why are you here ?"
"I ought to be here! Lucy, you are not
"I know I am not. I do not deny it,'
"You do love me a little, Lucy."
"I know I do."
"Ah! Thank God! My uncle made
me so wretched. He said there was no
hope for me ; but there is a chance of hap
"Not in tho way you mean. I never
can forgive what happened at Hazel wood I
It is cruel of you to give me this pain.
You ought not to have come here! I've
been trying to overcome what I felt for
you. I was getting over it and now you
come and I shall have to begin afresh."
"No, you shall not begin. You own you
love me a little.' I love you most passion
ately! My darling Lucy, let us love each
other and be happy."
"I hajipy with you, after that letter "
"How cruel to remind me! Don't you
know that it was written wholly and sole
ly because "
"Oh!" cried Lucy, "spare me all that!
I know it so well."
"But, Lucy, you must have seen that I
"Valuable love, indeed!" cried Lucy.
"It was true you were not much more
than a girl when Ifirst saw you ; I loved
you then, and I have loved you ever since!
So help me Got!, I have not known a hap
py hour since last I saw you!" He saw a
movement of impatience and disbelief,
and cried, "You do not believe me I tell
you I nearly shot myself one night lately!
I should have done it if it had not been
for my uncle. He said he would come and
talk to you."
"No talking can change me," said Lucy.
"Listen to the feeling in your own heart,
which tells you to forgive me and to love
me you know you would be happier if
you yielded Dear Lucy you do not know
how good I will be to you."
Lucy was still standing by the sofa he
was standing by her her eyes were cast
down ; she dared not let them meet his.
His voice made .her tremble, .his words
stirred her profoundly. She saw his hand
quivering with desire to clasp hers which
was near it ;' she ,knew she loved him stilli.
Alas, . she, knew also . that she . despised
him, and that, if she lived : to bo a hun-i
dred, she should never.' cease to do so
when she remembered that letter. Would
it he possible to love him and set it aside?
She wondered if that could be. -
What if she drove him to kill himself? .
Now. when he left her she would be more
miserable than ver, for that. dread would
he added to her othor pain.- She felt his
lingers touch hers should Bhe could
she yield? She felt his hand close on
hers, and still she stood as if spell-bound.
"Lucy," said he, "my whole life shall
be snent in showing my love and grati
tude." i ueu ua a aa in Mma m
Her at rmi;tli came hark to her she
wrenrlied her hand away "Oh, rut, no,

She dared m Muy; the U'liiittatiou to

heart was so great. rhe was true to her
resolution; if she had stayed she might
perhupa have yielded. Khe ran hark to
the room where she had left Mrs. Lish
man, and to her surprise found her still
there, walking up ami down and waiting
for her. She did not kmrw that the jmor
woman was filing very anxious alurat
her. Lucy saw a motherly look in Mrs.
Lii-liiiian's face a look of pitying kind-tie.-.
She ran up to her and threw her
onus around her, and raiil, "Oh, Mrs.

"Will he follow me, do you think?
Make him go if he does. I cannot, can

"You shall not see him unless you like!
You have come bravely out of it, I can
see that," said Mrs. Lishman, who knew
all that could lie told by the Mostyns ser
vants, and by the familiar process of put
ting two and two together.
. "If I only had Aunt Esther here," said
Lucy, "I am so alone!"
"Not alone," said Mrs. Lishtnan, "least
ways not if you will count me as anybody.
Miss Clavering, if you will trust me, I'll
do anything I can for you." After that
day, if Mrs. Lishman had lieen Lucy's own
mother she could not have been more de
