PART II - CHAPTER V
AN ARROW FROM THE IMPATIENT GOD

ON an afternoon three or four days after the recovery of Sam, matters became complicated. George, as usual, discovered that he had been dawdling in the portals of his desires, when the doors came to with a bang. Then he hastened to knock.

She for one hasn't kept much of her youth. But when is the exact date, dear?-Some say this and some that, but as I always say, I never trust a"they say."
