Saint's Progress
PART THREE
I

DOWN BY THE RIVER WYE, AMONG PLUM TREES IN blossom, Noel had laid her baby in a hammock, and stood reading a letter:

`MY DEAREST NOLLIE,
`Now that you are strong again, I feel that I must put before you my feeling as to your duty in this crisis of your life. Your aunt and uncle have made the most kind and generous offer to adopt your little boy. I have known that this was in their minds for some time, and have thought it over dav and night for weeks.

I want you to think and think-till you arrive at a certainty which satisfies your conscience. If you decide, as I trust you will, to come back to me here with your boy, I shall do all in my power to make you happy while we face the future together. To do as your aunt and uncle in their kindness wish, would, I am sore afraid, end in depriving you of the inner strength and happiness which God only gives to those who do their duty and try courageously to repair their errors. I have confidence in you, my dear child.
`Ever your most loving father, `EDWARD PIERSON.'

Sunlight fell through the plum blossom, in an extra patchwork quilt over the bundle lying there, touched the baby's nose and mouth, so that he sneezed. Noel laughed, and put her lips close to his face. `Give you up!' she thought: `Oh, no! And I'm going to be happy too. They shan't stop me.'
In answer to the letter she said simply that she was coming up; and a week later she went, to the dismay of her
