PART I - CHAPTER VII
LETTIE PULLS DOWN THE SMALL GOLD GRAPES

fairly set my heart on these. Don't you think they 're lovely?'
'Exquisitely lovely. Suppose I go and ask mother.'
`If you would. But no, oh, no, you can't make all that journey this terrible night. We are simply besieged by mud. The men are both out-William has gone to meet father-and mother has sent George to carry some thin 9S to the vicarage. I can't ask one of the girls on a night like this. I shall have to let it go-and the cranberry tarts too -it cannot be helped. I am so miserable.'
`Ask Leslie,' said I.
`He is too cross,' she replied, looking at him.
He did not deign a remark.
'Will you, Leslie?'
`What?'
'Go across to Woodside for me?'
`What for?'
`A recipe. Do, there 's a dear boy.'
'Where are the men?'
`They are both engaged-they are out.`
'Send a girl, then.'
`A night like this? Who would go?'
'Cissy.,
'I shall not ask her. Isn't he mean, Cyril? Men are mean.'
'I will come back,' said I. `There is nothing at home to do. Mother is reading, and Lettie is stitching. The weather disagrees with her, as it does with Leslie.'
`But it is not fair-' she said, looking at me softly. Then she put away the great book, and climbed down.
'Won't you go, Leslie?' she said, laying her hand on his shoulder.
`Women!' he said, rising as if reluctantly. `There's no end to their wants and their caprices.' ,
` I thought he would go,' said she warmly. She ran to fetch his overcoat. He put one arm slowly in the sleeve, and then the other, but he would not lift the coat on to his shoulders.
`Well!' she said, struggling on tiptoe, `you are a great creature! Can't you get it on, naughty child?' 'Give her a chair to stand on,' he said.
