As he drove up the trail, which was in places barely passable for a wagon, Brit was thinking of that fence. The Sawtooth would object to it, he knew, since it cut off one of their stock trails and sent them around through rougher country. Just what form their objection would take, Brit did not know. Deep in his intrepid soul he hoped that the Sawtooth would at last show its hand openly.
For, generous as Richard might be, he was not fond of his young cousin; and Hugo, being aware of this fact, regarded him with instinctive aversion. In his own fashion he did love Brian a little bit! Brian Luttrell was at this time barely three-and-twenty.
There was the trip to Europe he alluded to it very tactfully but he did not speak as if it were to be made alone.

There was Mexico, a vast treasure-house, barely scratched by the prospector; his star would soon lead him there.
Going farther forward, on the same level we come to the crew's department, part of which is occupied by the cooking-establishment, where all sorts of cooking is going on for the officers and men.
