was with said she'd leave me something in her will if I stayed v,-ith her till she passed away."
" It was that money that gave me my start," Mr. Carter broke in. "Except for that I'd never have been where I am today. And I don't rnind telling you your ma's the best wife a man ever had."
" I never had a proper education," Mrs. Carter went on, "but I always was ambitious. The proudest moment of my life was when your pa said we could afford a girl to help me and he said then: `The time'll come when you have a cook and a housemaid,' and he's been as good as his word, and now you're going back to what I come from. I'd set my heart on your marrying a gentleman."
She began crying again. Gracie loved her parents and couldn't bear to see them so distressed.
" I'm sorry, Ma, I knew it would be a disappointment to you, but I can't help it, I can't really. I love him so, I love him so terribly. I'm sure you'll like him when you see him. We're going for a walk on the Common this afternoon. Can't I bring him back to supper?"
Mrs. Carter gave her husband a harassed look. He sighed.
" I don't like it and it's no good pretending I do, but I suppose we'd better have a look at him."
Supper passed off better than might have been expected. Fred wasn't shy, and he talked to Gracie's parents as though he had known them all his life. If to be waited on by a maid, if to sup in a dining-room furnished in solid mahogany and afterwards to sit in a drawing-room that had a grand piano in it was new to him, he showed no embarrassment. After he had gone and they were alone in their bedroom Mr. and Mrs. Carter talked him over.
" He is handsome, you can't deny that," she said.
" Handsome is as handsome does. D'you think he's after her money?"
" Well, he must know that you've got a tidy little bit tucked away somewhere, but he's in love with her all right."
