"I am glad it is done, madame, for you look heavy-eyed, as any one ought, after tossing two nights on Fundy Bay and sewing on a black gown until midnight cock-crow of the third." "I am not now fit to face a siege," owned Marie. "We must get to bed. Though first I crave one more look at the dead baby Zélie hath in charge.

He burst into laughter and Antonia looked at him as if he had spoken against religion. She sighed. "It was my duty to open the box once every month."
