Aylmer's eyes were bright, her voice no longer trembling, and she spoke quickly. "I, Susan Aylmer, of Aylmer's Court, Shropshire, being quite in my right mind, leave, with the exception of a small legacy of fifty pounds a year to my sister-in-law, Mrs. Aylmer, of Dawlish, all the money I possess to two London hospitals to be chosen by my executor.

And so, my good friend" she laid her white hand for an instant on Sir John's arm "you are going to leave your property to your favourite Kitty?" Sir John frowned; then he said shortly: "I see no reason for denying the fact. Kitty Sharston, when it pleases God to remove me, will inherit my wealth." "She is a sweet, very sweet girl," replied Mrs. Aylmer.

She had taken up 'This Morning's Gossip' from The Daily Mail, and she began in the soft, low, distinct voice reading from The Rambler: 'Lord Redesdale says that when Lord Haldane's scheme for a Territorial Army was on foot he took it to the Aylmer stopped her. 'No not that' 'Shall I read you a novel? 'I think I should like to hear some poetry today, he answered.

'I hope my maid has been with you, said she to which Clara muttered something intended for thanks. 'You'll find Richards a very clever woman, and quite a proper person. 'I don't at all doubt that. 'She has been here a good many years, and has perhaps little ways of her own but she means to be obliging. 'I shall give her very little trouble, Lady Aylmer.

"Aylmer, are you in earnest?" asked Georgiana, looking at him with amazement and fear; "it is terrible to possess such power, or even to dream of possessing it!" "Oh, do not tremble, my love!" said her husband, "I would not wrong either you or myself, by working such inharmonious effects upon our lives.

'And is that to be all? 'Yes that is to be all. 'And you say that you have no letter to write. 'None no letter; none at present; none about this affair. Captain Aylmer, no doubt, will write to his mother, and then all those who are concerned will have been told. Clara Amedroz held her purpose and wrote no letter, but Mrs Askerton was not so discreet, or so indiscreet as the case might be.

Each girl had her little cubicle or division curtained off from her fellows, where she could sleep and where she could retire, if necessary, into a sort of semi-solitude.

I think, if I were you, I would tell the whole to Mr Amedroz; but this I will leave to your own discretion. I can assure you that Lady Aylmer has full proof as to the truth of what I tell you. 'I go up to London in February. I suppose I may hardly hope to see you before the recess in July or August; but I trust that before that we shall have fixed the day when you will make me the happiest of men.

Aylmer thought that her cup of bliss was running over. At last the trying-on was completed, the old dresses discarded and put away, and Florence came downstairs in her travelling serge, wondering if a fairy wand had been passed over her, and if she were indeed the same girl who had arrived at Dawlish a week ago. "And here's a letter from your aunt; it arrived a quarter of an hour ago," said Mrs.

They arrived at the hotel, which turned out to be the "Crown and Garter," just as the great clock in the hall struck three. Mrs. Aylmer had never been inside the "Crown and Garter," and she now looked around her with intense pleasure, and when one of the waiters came forward asked him in a pompous voice for "my sister-in-law, Mrs. Aylmer."
