Saint's Progress

Somewhere by Twickenham the moon had floated down; somewhere up from Kentish Town the sun came soaring; wheels rolled again, and the seven million sleepers in their million houses woke from morning sleep to that same thought....

IX
Edward Pierson, dreaming over an egg at breakfast, opened a letter in a handwriting which he did not recognize.

`V. A. D. Hospital,
'Mulberry Road, St. John's Wood N. W. `DEAR COUSIN EDWARD,
`Do you remember me, or have I gone too far into the shades of night? I was Leila Pierson once upon a time, and I often think of you and wonder what you are like now, and what your girls are like. I have been here nearly a year, working for our wounded, and for a year before that was nursing in South Africa. My husband died five years ago out there. Though we haven't met for I dare not think how long, I should awfully like to see you again. Would you care to come some day and look over my hospital? I have two wards under me; our men are rather dears.
`Your forgotten but still affectionate cousin
`LEILA LYNCH.'
`P. S. I came across a little letter you once wrote me; it brought back old days.'

No ! He had no forgotten. There was a reminder in the house. And he looked up at Noel sitting opposite. How like the eyes were! And he thought: `I wonder what Leila has become. One mustn't be uncharitable. That man is dead; she has been nursing two years. She must be greatly changed; I should certainly like to see her. I will go!' Again he looked at Noel. Only yesterday she had renewed her request to be allowed to begin her training as a nurse.
`I'm going to see a hospital to-day, Nollie,' he said; `if you like, I'll make inquiries. I'm afraid it'll mean you have to begin by washing up.'
