'The conceit of the boy, to play Prince!' said my mother.
'Oh, but it appears I was sadly out of character,' he said ruefully.
Lettie laughed and forgave him.

`It is a lovely afternoon,' said mother.
She glanced at him, and said: `I feel dreadfully lazy.'
`Never mind!' he replied, `you'll wake up. Go and put your hat on.'
He sounded impatient. She looked at him.
He seemed to be smiling peculiarly.
She lowered her eyes and went out of the room.
'She 'll come all right,' he said, to himself, and to me.
'She likes to play you on a string.'
She must have heard him. When she came in again, drawing on her gloves, she said quietly:
'You come as well, Pat.'
He swung round and stared at her in angry amazement. ' I had rather stay and finish this sketch,' I said, feeling uncomfortable.
`No, but do come, there's a dear.' She took the brush from my hand, and drew me from my chair. The blood flushed into his cheeks. He went quietly into the hall and brought my cap.

`They do, dear Iron Duke, they do,' she mocked.

'Say Peterloo, my general, say Peterloo.'
`Ay, Peterloo,' he replied, with a splendid curl of the lip
-'Easy conquests !'
"'He came, he saw, he conquered,"' Lettie recited.
'Are you coming?' he said, getting more angry. 'When you bid me,' she replied, taking my arm.
We went through the wood, and through the dishevelled border-land to the high road, through the border-land that should have been park-like, but which was shaggy with
