Even in the matter of her age he had been deceived, for she was eight years the oldest. Bruce Harpers rage then was long as I live. cursed her and those who had aided her with curses that ring in ears sometimes to this day. And then he left her. " He would not live with her, even a day; he would not apply for a divorce, and he forbade her ever to take his name. I think she was afraid to disobey him in this, for she never assumed his name. But tie between them was legally binding and remains unbroken, in law, she is Ins wile, and he is a married man."
