Mis. Howard placidly assented, but
Marion's enthusiasm did not cool.

Mrs. Howard privately resolved to!

Kasy-going, comfortable Mrs. How?

been on;- to turn back after putting

So the lessons continued.
Not a leisure moment but Marion's

Marion's room where with the un will-1

fear and trembling.
