Saint's Progress

`Dad, promise me not to worry about Nollie; we'll take care of her '
`She can only take care of herself, Gracie, and will she? Did you know that Captain Fort was here yesterday?'
`She told me.'
`What is her feeling about him?'
`I don't think she knows. Nollie dreams along, and then suddenly rushes.'
`I wish she were safe from that man.'
`But, Dad, whv? George likes him and so do I'
A big grey moth was fluttering against the lamp. Pierson got up and caught it in the curve of his palm. `Poor thing! You're like my Nollie; so soft, and dreamy, so feckless, so reckless.' And going to the curtains, he thrust his hand through, and released the moth.
`Dad!' said Gratian suddenly, `we can only find out for ourselves, even if we do singe our wings in doing it. We've been reading James's "Pragmatism". George says the only chapter that's important is missing-the one on ethics, to show that what we do is not wrong till it's proved wrong by the result. I suppose he was afraid to deliver that lecture.'
Pierson's face wore the smile which always came on it when he had to deal with George, the smile which said: `Ah, George, that's very clever; but I know.'
`My dear,' he said, `that doctrine is the most dangerous in the world. I am surprised at George.'
`I don't think George is in danger, Dad.'
`George is a man of wide experience and strong judgement and character; but think how fatal it would be for Nollie, my poor Nollie, whom a little gust can blow into the candle.'
`All the same,' said Gratian stubbornly, `I don't think anyone can be good or worth anything unless they judge for themselves and take risks.'
