"I understand you to say that he has no friends whatever!" "None, sir, as far as we know. Quite a foundling." "That will do," said the doctor; and while the boy was bidding good-bye to the old woman who had tended the sick tramp, the master led the way to the nursery, where about a dozen children were crawling about and hanging close to a large fire-guard.

I must be sure about her, and one other thing. I'll write you about that this week. If that is all right with you, you can get ready for a deluge. I've held in as long as I can. Kate, will you kiss me good-bye?" "That's against the rules," said Kate. "That's getting the cart before the horse." "I know it," he said. "But haven't I been an example for six weeks? Only one. Please?"

Betsy and pretty Nassirah very thin and miserable, and the pious old Abdool sitting on a little barrel waiting for 'gun-fire' i.e. sunset, to fall to on the supper which old Betsy was setting out. He was silent, and the corners of his mouth were drawn down just like -'s at an evening party. I shall go to-morrow to bid the T-s good-bye, at Wynberg.

He took the reins, mounted the box, and with Joe drove slowly home; but it was not our home now. The next morning after breakfast, Joe put Merrylegs into the mistress' low chaise to take him to the vicarage; he came first and said good-bye to us, and Merrylegs neighed to us from the yard.

"We have to hurry, and we will be glad to explore." "Well, good-bye then, and good luck. I'll be at the dock ahead of you." "Isn't he the quaintest old man?" asked Belle as the little party hurried along. Then she added: "You and Freda made quite a visit. We began to think you were kidnapped."

Kuzma Vassilyevitch put on his cap. "I haven't time to wait any longer, madam. I may not come to-morrow, either. Please tell her so." "Very good, I'll tell her. But I hope you haven't been dull, Mr. Lieutenant?" "No, I have not been dull." "I thought not. Good-bye." "Good-bye." Kuzma Vassilyevitch returned home and stretching himself on his bed sank into meditation. He was unutterably perplexed.

"The rest of the firm had better make haste and retire." Mont laughed. "You'll see," he said. "There's going to be a big change. The possessive principle has got its shutters up." "What?" said Soames. "The house is to let! Good-bye, sir; I'm off now." Soames watched his daughter give her hand, saw her wince at the squeeze it received, and distinctly heard the young man's sigh as he passed out.

"I like, you know, about as well as I ever liked anything, this wonderful idea of yours of putting in a plea for her solitude and her youth. Don't think I do it injustice if I say which is saying much that it's quite as charming as it's amusing. And now good-bye." He had put out his hand, but Nanda hesitated. "You won't wait for tea?" "My dear child, I can't."

"The book 's a love story," said the youngest one, an apologetic note perceptible in her voice, "but it's a pretty story, and the treatment's interesting, and I thought you might enjoy it, for railroad travelling always makes one feel sentimental, anyway." "Oh, the train 's moving! Good-bye, dear!" The one who was nearest to Dr.

But I mustn't stay, some one'll see, and I should just catch it! Good-bye, Dora! and so another kiss, very hasty and frightened, but very welcome to the cheek it touched. As they neared Manchester, Dora, in her loneliness of soul, thought very tenderly of Lucy wondered how she had grown up, whether she was pretty and many other things. She had certainly been a pretty child.
