(Continued from last week.)
CHAPTER H. t
I was taking a tarn or two outside the
hod for the sight of Jack Dawson hug
ging poor Moll to his breast and trying
to soothe her bodily misery with gentle
words was more than I oonld bear
whon a drawer, coming across from the
inn, told me that a gentleman in the
cherry room would have ns come to him.
I gave him a civil answer and carried
this message to my friends. Moll, who
had stanched her tears and was smil
ing piteously, though her sobs, like
those of a child, still shook her thin
frame, and her father both looked at me
in blank doubt as fearing some trap for
further discomfiture.
"Nay," says Jack stoutly. "Fatecan
serve us no worse within doors than
without, so let us in and face this gen
tleman, whoever he is. "
' So in we go, and, all sodden and be-
drabbled as we were, went to follow the
drawer up stairs, when the landlady
cried out she would not have us go into
her cherry room in that pickle, to soil
her best furniture and disgrace her
house, and bade the fellow carry us into
the kitchen to take off our cloaks and
change our boots for slip shoes, adding
that if we had any respect for ourselves
we should trim our hair and wash the
grime off our faces.
So we enter the kitchen nothing loath,
where a couple of pullets browning on
the spit, kettles bubbling on the fire and
a pasty drawing from the oven filled the
air with delicious odors that nearly
drove us mad for envy. And to think
that these good things were to tempt
the appetite of some one who sever
hungered, while we, famishing for want,
had not even a crust to appease our
cravings ! But it was some comfort to
plunge our blue, numbed fingers into a
tub of hot water and feel the life blood
creeping back into our hearts. The
paint we had put on our cheeks the
night before was streaked all over our
faces by the snow, so that we did look
the veriest scarecrows imaginable, but
after washing our heads well and strok
ing our hair into order with a comb
Mistress Cook lent us we looked not so
bad, and thus changed, and with dry
shoes to our feet, we at length went up
. stairs, all full of wondering expecta
tion, and were led into the cherry room,
which seemed to us a very palace, being
lit with half a dozen candlos and they
of wax and filled with a warm glow
by the blazing logs on the hearth reflect
ed in the cherry hangings. And there
in the midst was a table laid for supper
with a wondrous white cloth, glasses to
drink from and silver forks all set out
most finely.
"His worship will be down ere long,"
says the drawer, and with that he makes
a pretense of building up the fire, being
warned thereto very like by the land
lady, with an eye to the safety of her
eilver.
"Can yon tell me his worship's name,
friend?" I whisper, my mind turning at
once to his worship of Tottenham Cross.
"Not I, were you to pay me, ' ' says he ;
" 'tis that outlandish and uncommon.
But for sure he is some great foreign
grandee." .
He could tell us no more, so we stood
there all together wondering, till pres
ently the door opens, and a tall, lean
gentleman enters, with a high front,
very finely dressed in silk stockings, a
long waisted coat and embroidered waist-
coat, and rich . lace at his cuffs and
throat. He wore no peruke, but his own
hair, cut quito close to his head, with a
pointed beard and a pair of long mus
tachios twisting up almost to his ears,
but his appearance was the more strik
ing by reason of his beard and mus
tachios being quite, black, while the
hair on his head was white as silver.
He had dark brows also, that overhung
very rich blaok eyes. His nose was long
and hooked, and his skin, which was of
a very dark complexion, was closely
lined with wrinkles about the eyes,
while a deep furrow lay betwixt his
browa He carried his head very high,
and was majestic and gracious in all his
movements, not one of which, as it
seemed to me, was made but of fore
thought and purpose. I should say his
age was about 60, though his step and
carriage were of a younger man. To my
eyes he appeared a very handsome and
a pleasing, amiable gentleman. But,
Lord, what can you conclude of a man
at a single glance, when every line in
his face, of which he had a score and
more, has each its history of varying
passions, known only to himself and se
cret phases of his life 1
He saluted us with a most noble bow,
and dismissed the drawer with a word
in an undertone. Then turning again to
us he said, "I had the pleasure of see
ing you act last night, and dance," he
adds, with a slight inclination of his
head to Moll. "Naturally I wish to be
better acquainted with you. Will it
please you to dine with me?"
I could not have been more dum
founded had an angel asked me to step
into heaven, but Dawson was quick
enough to say something.
"That will we," cries he, "and God
bless your worship for taking pity on
us, for I doubt not yon have heard of
our troubles."
The other bowed his head and set a
chair at the end of the table for Moll,
Which she took with a pretty oourtesy)
a pus laying : never a WOM, tor glee mq
rogues.

as if she would fain begin at once, but
she had the good manners to restrain
herself. Then his worship (as we called
him), having shown us the chairs on
either side, seated himself last of all, at
the head of the table, facing our Moll,
whom whenever he might without dis
courtesy he regarded with most scruti
nizing glances from first to last. Then,
the door flinging open, two drawers
brought in those same fat pullets we had
seen browning before the fire and also
the pasty, with abundance of ether good
cheer, at which Moll, with a little cry
of delight, whispers to me :
" 'Tis like a dream. Do 6peak to mo,
Kit, or I must think 'twill all fade
away presently and leave us in the
snow."
Then I, finding my tongue, begged
his worship would pardon us if our
manners were more uncouth than the
society to which he was accustomed.
"Nay, "says Dawson. "Your worship
will like us none the worse, I warrant,
for seeingwhat weare and aping none."
Finding himself thus beworshiped on
both hands, our good friend says :
, "You may call me senor. I am a
Spaniard Don Sanchez del Castello de
Castelana. " And then to turn the sub
ject he adds, "I have seen you play
twioe. "
"Aye, senor, and I should have known
you again if by nothing but this piece
'at generosity," replies Dawson, with
.his cheek full of pasty, "for I remem
ber both times you set down a coin and
would take no change. "
;.. Don Sanchez hunched his shoulders
cavalierly, as if such trifles were naught
to him, but indeed throughout his man
ner was most high and noble.
And now, being fairly settled down
to our repast, we said no more of any
moment than I can recall to mind till
we had done (which was not until
naught remained of the pullets and the
pasty but a few bones and the bare
dish), and we were drawn round the
fire at Don Sanchez's invitation. Then
the drawers, having oleared the tables,
brought up a huge bowl of hot spiced
wine, a dish of tobacco and some pipes.
Then don then offered us to smoke some
cigarros, but we, not understanding
them, took instead our homely pipes,
and each with a bottle of hot wine to
his hand and roasting before the fire,
scarce saying a word, the don being si
lent because his humor was of the re
flective, grave kind (with all his cour
tesies he never smiled, as if such dem
onstrations were unbecoming to his dig
nity), and we from repletion and a feel
ing of wondrous contentment and re
pose. And another thing served to keep
us still, which was that our Moll, sit
ting beside her father, almost at once
fell asleep, her head lying against his
shoulder as he sat with his arm about
her waist. As at the table, Don San
chez had seated himself where he could
best observe her, and now he scarcely
once took his eyes off her, which were
half closed, as if in speculation. At
length, taking the cigarro from his lips,
he says softly to Jack Dawson so as not
to arouse Moll :
