PART III - CHAPTER VI
PISGAH

`It is no good, Lettie,' he said, `we can't go on.'
'Oh, but come, come, come!' she exclaimed. `We are not talking about going on; we are considering what a fine parting I have made you down the middle, like two wings of a spread bird.' She looked down, smiling playfully on him, just closing her eyes slightly in petition.
He rose and took a deep breath, and set his shoulders.
`No,' he said, and at the sound of his voice, Lettie went pale and also stiffened herself.
'No,' he repeated. 'It is impossible. I felt as soon as Fred came into the room-it must be one way or another,'
'Very well, then,' said Lettie, coldly. Her voice was `muted' like a violin.
`Yes,' he replied, submissive. `The children.' Ffe looked at her, contracting his lips in a smile of misery.
`Are you sure it must be so final?' she asked, rebellious, even resentful. She was twisting the azurite jewels on her bosom, and pressing the blunt points into her flesh. He looked up from the fascination of her action when he heard the tone of her last question. He was angry.
'Quite sure!' he said at last, simply, ironically.
She bowed her head in assent. His face twitched sharply as he restrained himself from speaking again. Then he turned and quietly left the room. She did not watch him go, but stood as he had left her. When, after some time, she heard the grating of his dog-cart on the gravel, and then the sharp trot of hoofs down the frozen road, she dropped herself on the settee, and lay with her bosom against the cushions, looking fixedly at the wall.
