PART III - CHAPTER III
THE FIRST PAGES OF SEVERAL ROMANCES

birds are thrilling wonderfully and everything seems stirring. Very likely there will be a set-back, and after that spring will come in truth.
Vb'hen shall you come and see me? I cannot think of a spring without you. The railways are the only fine exciting things hereone is only a few yards away from school. All day long I am watching the great Midland trains go south. They are very lucky to be able to rush southward through the sunshine.
The crows are very interesting. They flap past all the time we're out in the yard. The railways and the crows make the charm of my life in Brayford. The other day I saw no end of pairs of crows. Do you remember what they say at home?--'One for sorrow.' Very often one solitary creature sits on the telegraph wires. I almost hate him when I look at him. I think my badge for life ought to be-one crow....
Again, a little later:
I have been home for the week-end. Isn't it nice to be made much of, to be an important cherished person for a little time? It is quite a new experience for me.
The snowdrops are full out among the grass in the front gardenand such a lot. I imagined you must come in the sunshine of the Sunday afternoon to see them. It did not seem possible you should not. The winter aconites are out along the hedge. I knelt and kissed them. I have been so glad to go away, to breathe the free air of life, but I felt as if I could not come away from the aconites. I have sent you some-are they much withere" . ?
Now I am in my lodgings, I have the quite unusual feeling of being contented to stay here a little while--not long--not above a year, I am sure. But even to be contented for a little while is enough for me....

In the begiiming of March I had a letter from the father:
You 'll not see us again in the old place. We shall be gone in a fortnight. The things are most of them gone already. George has got Bob and I lower. I have sold three of the cows, Stafford, and Julia, and Hannah. The place looks very empty. I don't like going past the cowsheds, and we miss hearing the horses stamp at night. But I shall not be sorry when we have really gone. I begin to feel as if we 'd stagnated here. I begin to feel as if I was settling and getting narrow and dull. It will be a new lease of life to get away.
But I'm wondering how we shall be over there. Mrs. Saxton feels very nervous about going. But at the worst we can but come back. I feel as if I must go somewhere, it's stagnation and starvation for us here. I wish George would come with me. I never thought he 'would have taken to public-house keeping, but he seems to like it all right. He was down with ;t1eg on Sunday. Mrs. Saxton says he 's getting a public-house tone. He is certainly much livelier, more full of talk than he was. D-Zeg and he seem very
