What she did-keeping a certain bloom of refinement, was far better than many more respectable ladies would have done, in her shoes. At least she never bemoaned her `reduced circumstances', and if her life was irregular and had at least three episodes, it was very human. She bravely took the rough with the smooth, never lost the power of enjoying herself, and grew in sympathy with the hardships of others. But she became deadly tired. When the war broke out, remembering that she was a good nurse, she took her real name again and a change of occupation.

But in a hard school she had learned perfect self-control; and though the sour and puritanical perceived her attraction,
