THE PEOPLE OF NETHERMERE


his mother has spoiled him as she has. But I wonder you are so interested in licking him. My mother sniffed contemptuously.
'He is rather good-looking,' said Lettie with a smile.
`You could make a man of him, I am sure,' I said, bowing satirically to her.
`I am not interested,' she replied, also satirical.
Then she tossed her head, and all the fine hairs that were free from bonds made a mist of yellow light in the sun.
'What frock shall I wear, mater?' she asked.
`Nay, don't ask me,' replied her mother.
`I think I'll wear the heliotrope-though this sun will fade it,' she said pensively. She was tall, nearly six feet in height, but slenderly formed. Her hair was yellow, tending towards a dun brown. She had beautiful eyes and brows, but not a nice nose. Her hands were very beautiful.
`Where are you going?' I asked.
She did not answer me.
`To Tempest's!' I said. She did not reply.
'Well, I don't know what you can see in him,' I continued.
`Indeed!' said she. `He's as good as most folk ' Then we both began to laugh.

'What shall you say if I agree?' I asked.
` Oh!' she tossed her head. 'We shall all be very pleased I'm sure.'
"Ooray!' said I with fine irony.
She laughed at me, blushed, and ran upstairs.
Half an hour afterwards she popped her head in the study to bid me good-bye, wishing to see if I appreciated her. She was so charming in her fresh linen frock and flowered hat, that I could not but be proud of her. She expected me to follow her to the window, for from between the great purple rhododendrons she waved me a lace mitten, then glinted on like a flower moving brightly through the green hazels. Her path lay through the wood in the opposite direction from Strelley Mill, down the red drive across the tree-scattered space to the high road. This road
