It was there at about 9:8(1 about yet
terdao morning that the meeting be
tween the father and the young man
who ho believed had brought disgrace
upon bim and his family took place. It
was the second time in his life, Mr.
Cisco says, that he had ever seen Davis,
and at the conclusion of a brief consul
