PART II - CHAPTER IV
KISS WHEN SHE 'S RIPE FOR TEARS

went to him to coax him and make him at home. She kissed him, and talked to him with her full vibration of emotional caress. It seemed almost to suffocate him. Then she tried to feed him with bread and milk from a spoon, but he would not open his mouth, and he turned his head away.
`Leave him alone-take no notice of him,' said Lettie, lifting him into the chimney seat, with the basin of bread and milk beside him. Emily fetched the two kittens out of their basket, and put them too beside him.
`I wonder how many eggs he'd got,' said the father, laughing softly.
'Hush!' said Lettie. 'When do you think you will go to Canada, Mr. Saxton?'
'Next spring-it 's no good going before.'
`And then you'll marry?' asked Lettie of George. `Before then-oh, before then,' he said.
'Why-how is it you are suddenly in such a hurry? when will it be?'
`When are you marrying?' he asked in reply. `I don't know,' she said, coming to a full stop.

'Father!' said he, holding the piece of cheese up before he spoke-he was evidently nervous: ` Would you advise me to marry Meg?'

'If you want her, I suppose you won't let that hinder you. She 'll have a nice bit of money, and if you like her'
' I like her all right-I shan't go out to Canada with her, though. I shall stay at the "Ram "-for the sake of the life.'
'It 's a poor life, that!' said the father, ruminating.
