I propose to wait till Sunday, on the chance that Mr. Crum may write again. If we don't hear from him, I shall start for Scotland on Monday morning, and take my chance of finding my way to Miss Silvester, through Mrs. Glenarm." "Leaving me behind?" "Leaving you behind. Somebody must stay with Blanche. After having only been a fortnight married, must I remind you of that?" "Don't you think Mr.
