A WOMAN OF FIFTY

guessed why the young man had asked them to go and see the ancestral villa.
" Young Italians are very impressionable. Laura is sensible enough not to take their attentions too seriously."
" I was hoping she was not quite indifferent to the boy."
" I have no reason to believe that she likes him any more than any other of the young men who dance withh her," Mrs. Clayton answered somewhat coldly. "I think I should tell you at once that my daughter has a very moderate income and she will have no more till I die."
" I will be frank with you. I have nothing in the world but this house and the few acres that surround it. My son could not afford to marry a penniless girl, but he is not a fortunehunter and he loves your daughter."

" Unless I am greatly mistaken that is just what he is doing now. I hope with all my heart that he will be successful."
They strolled on and presently saw walking towards them the two young people hand in hand. It was not difficult to guess what had passed. Tito kissed Mrs. Clayton's hand and his father on both cheeks.
" Mrs. Clayton, Papa, Laura has consented to be my wife."
The engagement made something of a stir in Florentine society and a number of parties were given for the young couple. It was quite evident that Tito was very much in love, but less so than Laura was. He was good-looking, adoring, high-spirited and gay; it was likely enough that she loved him; but she was a girl who did not display emotion and she remained what she had always been, somewhat placid, amiable, serious but friendly, and easy to talk to.
