PART I - CHAPTER IX
LETTIE COMES OF AGE

Frank Wishaw was not a nice fellow, though he played the violin beautifully. I never liked his eyes
'No,' added Will. 'He didn't last long, did he?though long enough to oust me. We had a giddy ripping time in Coll., didn't we?'
'It was not bad,' said Lettie. 'Rather foolish. I'm afraid I wasted my three years.'
`I think,' said Leslie, smiling, `you improved the shining hours to great purpose.'
It pleased him to think what a flirt she had been, since the flirting had been harmless, and only added to the glory of his final conquest. George felt very much left out during these reminiscences.

When we had finished tea, we adjourned to the drawingroom. It was in darkness, save for the firelight. The mistletoe had been discovered, -and was being appreciated.
` Georgie, Sybil, Sybil, Georgie, come and kiss me,' cried Alice.
Will went forward to do her the honour. She ran to me, saying: `Get away, you fat fool-keep on your own preserves. Now Georgie dear, come and kiss me, 'cause you haven't got nobody else but me, no, y' 'aven't. Do you want to run away, like Georgy-Porgy apple-pie? Shan't cry, sure I shan't, if you are ugly.'
She took him and kissed him on either cheek, saying softly: ' You shan't be so serious, old boy-buck up, there 's a good fellow.'
We lighted the lamp, and charades were proposed. Leslie and Lettie, Will and bladie and Alice went out to play. The first scene was an elopement to Gretna Green -with Alice a maid-servant, a part that she played wonderfully well as a caricature. It was very noisy, and extremely funny. Leslie was in high spirits. It was remarkable to observe that, as he became more animated, more abundantly energetic, Lettie became quieter. The second scene, which they were playing as excited melodrama, she turned into small tragedy with her bitterness. They went out, and Lettie blew us kisses from the doorway.
`Doesn't she act well?' exclaimed Marie, speaking to Tom.
