Bobby's face had been growing longer and longer as the Assistant Commissioner proceeded. When Mr. Crane mentioned the letter Bobby could not restrain an exclamation. "A letter?" he asked excitedly. "What letter?" "This," said the Assistant Commissioner, handing him the note that Clancey and he had previously seen. Bobby took it eagerly and read Once more I fear I am causing you unhappiness.

I can only grieve within my soul, and fret and sulk. At night my head buzzes with the rush of my thoughts and I cannot sleep.... Ah! If I were young!" Ivan Ivanich walked excitedly up and down the room and repeated: "If I were young." He suddenly walked up to Aliokhin and shook him first by one hand and then by the other.

I sold my best table to a general, which gave me a lot of confidence, but my greatest triumph was a hat-rack. It was a barren, gaunt-looking affair, like a leafless tree in winter, but it was mahogany, and it was old. Two ladies who were excitedly buying tables spied it, and exclaimed in rapture. I rose to the occasion: "That is the most unusual piece I have," I unblushingly gushed.

But our indignation had grown hotter with the shake-up that we had just had, and as usual Jack was spokesman for it: "Maybe there is no occasion for alarm," he said excitedly, "but will you be kind enough to answer my question, and tell us what you're about and where we are going?" And Henry, too, who was ordinarily as mute as a clam, broke out still more hotly: "See here!
