`He's such a queer mixture,' mused George. `Clean out of his age; chalks above most of the parsons in a spiritual sense and chalks below most of them in the worldly. And yet I believe he's in the right of it. The Church ought to be a forlorn hope, Nollie; then we should believe in it. Instead of that, it's a sort of business that no one can take too seriously.

An aching sweetness tortured her, she wanted the earth to close its arms about her, she wanted the answer to her
