MISS CORNELIUS

he said, when he finished. `Black hate like this, that strikes at you through the one you love, is devilish. You've got to mind.'
`Granted, though, that Miss Cornelius is all that you think she is-'
`I daren't think what she is,' he groaned; but Alice Hordern took no notice of the interruption.
`Surely you only play her game by reciprocating her black hatred.'
`It's the missionary who is speaking now, I suppose,' he said bitterly.
`No, it's just me. You can't hate a person without always thinking of them. Hatred is like love in that. People use the expression to forget and forgive; but they put the cart before the horse. Until you have forgiven, you cannot forget. It is necessary for your peace of mind to forget Miss Cornelius. And so you must forgive her.'
`It could only be juggling with words. How can I, when I know what she has done and is doing? And what right have I to forgive, when it is not me she is injuring so much as Molly?'
`I am not sure of that,' said Miss Hordern. `You can but try. Remember this, though. If you ask Molly whether she opened that drawer and read that letter and she says no, believe her. Not even Miss Cornelius can break the truth in Molly. She cannot touch you there.'

`Good God!' he exclaimed. `She's there in the garden, standing in the shadow of the yew-tree, looking up at the house.' Miss Hordern hurried to his side.
`Where?' she said. `I don't see any one.'
'She's gone now, but she was there a moment ago. I saw her face.'
`Come with me,' said Miss Hordern. `We'll go into the garden. If Miss Cornelius is indeed there, it is a matter for the police'
