CHAPTER THREE

"You are braver than I ever guessed you could be."
The gentleness of her words brought tears to Phillida's eyes.
" You understand !" she said, "and I never dreamed I would find anyone in this house who would understand."
" I cannot pretend to understand your feelings," Lizbeth answered, "but I admire you for doing what you wish to do. I thought that you had little interest in anything or anybody, which shows how mistaken one can be even m those one knows best."
" I dare not confide in anyone," Phillida said. "Besides, it would be wrong to involve you in my secrets."
" To think that Mister Andrews was a Catholic and we never guessed it!"
" He was desperately afraid of being discovered," Phillida said. "Just as I, too, am afraid that Father will find me out."
" He will never guess unless you tell him," Lizbeth said ; "but he will think it strange if you refuse to be betrothed to Rodney."
" I know he will," Phillida replied. "With the others I was able to speak to them first and send them away before they spoke to Father. Master Hawkhurst asked for my hand the very first night he came here."
" He wanted Father to give him money for his ship and he decided to offer for you even before he saw you ; but when he did see you, he fell in love with you-that was what happened."
" It makes no difference how it happened. I cannot marry him. Jesus have mercy! I cannot. I have written to Mister Andrews asking him to help me."
" When did you send the letter?" Lizbeth asked.
" Only to-day," Phillida replied. "I gave it to one of the servants to take into Hatfield. He was just leaving, so there was no chance of Father seeing it."
" Or Catherine, I hope!" Lizbeth added. "Catherine is far more dangerous than Father when it comes to being suspicious of or suspecting us of doing anything that is reprehensible."
" Yes, I know that. She merely despises me. She thinks I am a fool-a fool who cannot get herself a husband ; but she is afraid and jealous of you."
