Mv mail was very interesting this
morning. First Dick threw a letter
from Harry Symone into my lap and
I read it.
"I'm coming home, old chap. Al
though I am not sure as yet that I
have a house to come to., but noth
ing can be worse than the loneliness
of these alien lands full of suffoca
tion of people, not one of whom I
know and most of whom speak a lan
guage I do not understand. Dick,
when I do get back, you and Madge
must be good to me not for the sins
I've committed, but because I've paid
I've paid. For the last year the
wandering Jew has had nothing on
me and I have suffered the torments
of the damned.
"Haven't heard a word of Eliene
for six months and the last was
through a note sent to my lawyers
saying that she had plenty of funds
and must decline the allowance I had
made for her.
"I wonder if every man who makes
the mistake I have has to pay the
penalty in as great a measure as I
have done. I am coming home now
to face it and win back Eliene if pos

family was becoming importunate
again and would I please ask Dick to
see what he could do in the matter,

"they grow more beautlfuL In both
of them I can see Harry's character
istics. Budge has his trick of looking
up quickly at you when you speak as
though he could tell better what you
mean from the expression on your
face than from your spoken words'.
"Toddy has that dear little way of
always touching you with a caress
if you come near him. His little hands
go out and he is perfectly content if
they clasp one of yours. Both of
them can say 'mama' and both have
six teeth. Toddy is beginning to try
to walk and Budge propels himself
backward in the funniest fashion I
can think of nothing else, than a
"I wonder, Margie, if I should come
back to the old house this winter?
Do you suppose anyone would won
der why I was there alone and would
some reporter feel called upon to
'write up' thetwins?
"I am a little lonely for my old
friends and if I do not come I want
you and Dick to come down here for
"The housekeeper writes me that
the house has seemed very lonely
since you and Dick left it and says,
'Mrs. Waverly and her aunt were de
lightful and we were all very, very
sorry to have them go.'
"There, Margie, you can see for
once how you look in the eyes of
your servants.
