JUST AFTER THE
-A. STORY OF
Written for The Weekly Sentinel by Eleanor M. Jones, oj New Berne, N.
Author of "Miss IAttlejohn."
Delacourt has been gone five weeks.
Our school is up, and I've had my ill
ness, which mother said " excitement
about the prize caused," that cause
suits about a3 well as the other, and I
suppose it did help. I couldn't be
present at the closing exercises, but
my prize was sent to me, a handsome
book, and a grand note with it ; I kept
them on my pillow ever so long to
look at. I haven't been dangerously
sick, but was right dangerously threat-
ened with congestion of the brain,
brain fever or something connected
with the brain. I'm up now though,
but three weeks indoors does make a
body a trifle weak, especially one who
is not accustomed to being sick.
Leonard kept me supplied with
fruit, while he was here ; lie and Oscar
left several days ago.
Archie has actually gone to that
man Delacourt in New York. He
would go ; said he'd gotten him a fine
situation. Father begged, command
ed, threatened, but this time Archie
held out, said he'd run away, and nev
er let us know where he was, if he
didn't give his consent. So he's gone
father never sayinsr anything af
ter that threat. He writes often,
seems delighted, and sends mother
money too. Says Belle lost a "trump"
in Mr. Delacourt I don't like his
letters, they are too full of blowing,
neither does mother, but she's glad to
get any kind, and she's made up her
mind to take the world, and Archie
with it, as it comes.
Poor father he worries a great deal
about him, and is much broken in a
short time. When Archie left, I felt
I hadn't done my duty by him ; he'd
never been my favorite brother, he
had teased me so, but I resolved to
write to him, and told him so, when I
kissed him good-bye; he appeared
quite pleased for he said, "why I didn't
know you cared that much about poor
It almost made me cry, in fact I
think it did, for I've thought ever
since perhaps he would have been bet
ter to ir.e, if he had thought I loved
him more. I've thought over my own
faults since I've been sick, because I
was afraid I might get worse and die:
I've written to him twice, and told him
how sorry I ara he's gone, and how
we miss him, which is true, for he was
the noisest and newsiest, and kept the
house in a whirl, and now his faults are
out of nht, its astonishing how many
good things we can remember. God
grant he may come back to us some
day, end be a comfort to father.
I was strolling about the house the
other day, not knowing exactly what
to do with myself, ( its August again,
and hot too) when Miss Rebecca came
in to see mother on business, which
was to beg mother to lcther take me
to the Spring.
Her father isn't so well, and they
are going and she thinks the change
will benefit her pet also she says.
As the trip is ta be a present from
her and she really seems anxious to
hava me, mother gives her permission,
which sets me perftctly wild, for I've
never been anywhere in my life, ex
cept out in the county, la L,itty's, and
Marie Louis Martyne comes to say
good-bye, and to tell all about her
grand winter in New York, where she's
been as a parlor-boarder in some fine
school (I wonder if they recite in a
parlor). She says Pierre will regret
my being absent when he comes, ( I
can't help sneering at that), says I'm
the only girl he can endure here (that
may be I think, and I not feel much
complimented then). I learn he's
coming for a short vacation, as he's at
College still. St. John is over in Eu
rope, she informes me, and tries to be
cocxuiscd when she talks about him,
twirling a big diamont ring round Jher
finger all the time to attract notice to
is'iiy ;ncorae also comes to see me.
Joel brings her to town, and leaves her
to stay lii.iL wjiii inc. He doesn't
come up after tea now, as he used to
do; it seems a long time ago when he
Kitty is thirteen now. just Jark's
agej and Jack's sweetheart ever since
they could talk. She is a little tat
dumpling, with a round chubby face,
rosy cheeks with lovely deep dimples
in thtm ; big blue eyes, set way back
in her head, and short curls dancing
in every direction, fer she shakes her
head so much, ehe keeps them in a
continual tumult. -
Jack thinks she's a beauty and so
dos mother. At ?ny rate everybody
thinks she's a beat:'." in disposition,
for everybody loves her, the is so af
fecttouate and merry. She talks Hk?
i ii"urn i vc never sen one.
and only take other folks word fo
taat they l j a lot 01 talking

of oi bovs are
perfectly devoted to
them. Archie used to pull her t-urls,
unttJ -h" had to get on her knees av. I
say si.o IjcJ;hir , he thought it fine
sport, 1 used to quarrel about it, but
Kitty never seemed to mind his rough
ness, she liked him all the same.
She's awfully disappointed about
my not going out to her home, but
mother says I may go if I get back
before school opens. Kitty has lots
ot news to tell ; all about Joel too.
She thinks he is perfection; says "he's
getting the place in ship-shape order,
and that he's going to run for the
Legislature next term." She and I
both know he'll get it, whatever it is,
she knows all about it, and undertakes
to explain to me, but it seems like
Greek. He is so good, but mother
says " goodness doesn't always tell in
politics." but she thinks he ought to
Kitty tells me privately that Joel
is never going to marry, going to live
single, and take care of her. She ad
mires me very much, thinks I'm very
wise, and all I say and do is right.
I tell her about Belle's conduct to
Joel, and she agrees with me, that
Belle will never do as well, in fact,
that she couldn't.
In a few days, I'm packed, good
byes have been said, and I'm being
whirled away in double-quick time.
Miss Rebecca sits with her father,
and Miss Jessie and I are on the same
At every station, I think its time to
get off, and I'm constantly asking
every time they stop to get water, if
the train has run off the track. I
know I appear green, but to tell the
truth I am a little afraid. We stop
all night in Petersburg, as the trip
right straight through is so fatiguing
for Mr. Livingstone, and two hours in
Richmond where we change cars. So I
see cities for the first time. I make
the drivers ot the carriages laugh, be
cause I ask them who live in all the
handsome houses we pass. I think it
must be fine to own such grand homes
and live in such style, but Miss Re
becca says I should have seen them
some years ago, to have beheld their
They all take great pains to ex
plain all places of interest to me as
we go along. When we get to the
Springs, we have the whole floor of a
lovely little cottage all to ourselves,
as Miss Rebecca wants quiet for her
father, and we go to the hotel to eat.
The hotel is the biggest house I've
ever seen, and isn't far from our cot
tage, just a little walk. Lots of peo
ple are up there, having a good time.
We soon get acquainted, and a lady
named Mrs. Hunt takes Miss Jessie
and me to a ball. Miss Rebecca
won't leave her father, but wants us
This is my first ball, and it beats all
the parties I've ever attended. The
light dazzles my eyes at first and I feel
bewildered. The people go whirling
by me, looking like they are floating
in the air. I only wish Belle could
seethe fine dresses. I know she'd
take it all in, and go home, and man
ufacture something like them, she's
got considerable taste.
I can dance a little, but I tell "a
young man, whom Mrs. Hunt intro
duces to me, that I'm afraid t& try.
lie looks afraid too, the floor is so
slippery, so he asks me to walk on the
piazza with him instead. Miss Jessie
is dancing, so I ask Mrs. Hunt if I
may and she nods her head, then I
take his arm and walk out with the
first grown gentleman who ever asked
me in my life, except Joel. How I
wished Belle could see me, wouldn't
she be surprised. I never was bash
ful, but I didn't know what to talk
about, but somehow after we once got
started, you'd think we'd known each
ether all our lives.
He is a distant cousin of Mrs.
Hunt's, but never met her before, un
til by accident they saw each other
here. She lives in Baltimore, and he
is a doctor and practices in Richmond.
His name is Dr. Marcellus Fenwick.
We stay together all the evening. He
asks me lots of questions about my
self and friends. He wants to know
where we live, and why Miss Rebecca
didn't come out to-night. I tell him
very candidly how I came to be with
the Livingstones, Ac.
He doesn't seem to mean to be in -quisitive,
and I like him very much ;
he's so gentle, and 'so "quiet in his
manner. He walks home w ith us all,
Mrs. Hunt also, she stays -at the hotel,
but goes over to see us safe, she says.
She tells me next morning at break
fast, that she thinks I've made a con
quest at my very first ball, fr her
cousin said he admired me very much,
I was so natural.
Of course I have
g;oso, and then she
cheek and asks her
forever rcadinar a
to olu?h, iiks a
pats me o!i the
husband, who is
who'd say yes to anything; she'd ask
him from force of habit I know, if he
wouldn't like to have me for a cousin.
Ali this of course, makes me lonk
very conscious when our new acquain
tance joins us after breakfast ana pro'
poses a walk to the" springs. T
i Jou'l, know hovk it happens I'm
sure, b'.it Dr. Fenwick unti l are- al
ways getting together. , I meet other
gentlemen', but he seems to be the ou
' ly oile who likes me. He is neither
handsome nor fascinating. Is very
thin and doesn't seem to be strong.
He came here for his health. ;
I knew his attentions to me meant
something, but I must say I never
dreamed ot the cause, until one after
noon we were out strolling together,
he told mehe wanted my assistance in an
important matter, and desired, to con
fide a secret to me, if I could keep it.
I have much curiosity and I'd have
promised anything to find but this
secret. He then went on to say, that
whenever he met anyone - named Liv
ingstone, he always took an interest
in them, as he has a dear friend, who
was rjice to marry a lady of that name
and from that he goes on to tell me
the history that I already partly
know of Dr. Emory Deane. He
tells me how this friend has wrecked
his hopes of domestic happiness by
breaking this engagement which
bound him to the daughter of his fath
er's murderer, as he called it, and
rendering a reconcilation impossible
in his estimation, by his bitter de
nunciation of his former benefactor.
Dr. Fenwick asks me if I can't see
some way to bring matters to a better
Seventeen years, he says have mol
lified his friend's views of that tragic
affair ; .have thrown more light -on the
subject and made him less revengful
in his feelings.
Of course I'm perfectly frantic to
have things set all right. Would
delight in going up to Richmond,
where he lives, bring Dr. Deane
down, throw him at Miss Rebecca's
feet, and have quite a tragic scene,
but Dr. Fenwick says he mustn't know
anything about Miss Bebecca's being
here ; he doesn't know where she is,
and he is to remain in the dark.
Dr. Fenwick is to prevail on him to
come out here, and I'm then to get
So we two become regular plotters,
and dear Miss Rebecca little thinks,
how I'm arranging, all to ,suit myself
her future happiness.
