"It's one of the expenses of relationship," Anthony sighed, after probing Dahlia unsatisfactorily to see whether she intended to pay for both, or at least for herself; and finding that she had no pride at all.

Davis with a "blast" of cool Northern "wind" in this hot weather? But enough of mystification. The straightforward reader wants a straightforward reason, and he shall have it. We went to Richmond because we hoped to pave the way for negotiations that would result in peace.
