PART I - CHAPTER III
A VENDOR OF VISIONS


Txr; Sunday following Lettie's visit to the mill, Leslie came up in the morning, admirably dressed, and perfected by a grand air. I showed him into the dark drawing-room, and left him. Ordinarily he would have wandered to the stairs, and sat there calling to Lettie; to-day he was silent. I carried the news of his arrival to my sister, who was pinning on her brooch.
`And how is the dear boy?' she asked.
`I have not inquired,' said I.
She laughed, and loitered about till it was time to set off for church before she came downstairs. Then she also assumed the grand air and bowed to him with a beautiful bow. He was somewhat taken aback and had nothing to say. She rustled across the room to the window, where the white geraniums grew magnificently. ` I must adorn myself,' she said.
It was Leslie's custom to bring her flowers. As he had not done so this day, she was piqued. He hated the scent and chalky whiteness of the geraniums. So she smiled at him as she pinned them into the bosom of her dress, saying:
They are very fine, are they not?'
He muttered that they were. Mother came downstairs, greeted him warmly, and asked him if he would take her to church.
`If you will allow me,' said he.
`You are modest to-day,' laughed mother.
'To-day !' he repeated.
` I hate modesty in a young man,' said mother-'Come, we shall be late.' Lettie wore the geraniums all day-till evening. She brought Alice Gall home to tea, and bade me bring up `Mon Taureau,' when his farm work was over.
