CHAPTER ONE

And at the moment I don't want to do anything except lie in the sun and enjoy myself."
" Yes, dear Francis, you are lazy," Lizbeth said fondly, "and if you were not, I dare say I should not be so energetic. 'Tis your fault that I have shot an arrow through our guest's hat. If you had been practising your archery, as Father told you, instead of lying on the grass, I should not have put up your bow and been tempted by that bobbing red plume going down the drive."
She paused for a moment.
" Do you think he will tell Father?"
" If he does, he's a babbling knave," Francis replied; "but then you can never tell with these rough, savage men who sail the sea."
" A lot you know about them," Lizbeth laughed scornfully. "Why don't you take a ship and go out and plunder the Spanish Main? That is what I would do if I were a man!"

Lizbeth stamped her foot, but only for a moment, and then throwing herself on her knees beside him, she ruffled his hair.
" And I hate you at times," she said, "and yet really I love you. You are the nicest brother in the world when you are nice, but when you rile me I want to fight you."
" Keep that for our guest," Francis answered. "If, as you
