sorry that I knew the secret when
I met Mrs. Cosgrove's eyes, full of
somber misery, and saw that she

When Dicky at last pushed back
his plate and declared himself satis

'I'll just run up and get my things
and then we'll start," Dicky said.
He went up the stairs with a
bound. Mrs. Allis and the two other
hoarders had left the table some
minutes before, so that there was
no one except the Cosgroves and
myself in the dining room. I pur

I was glad to get out into the
