He wiped his eyes without any false shame. "Oh yes." He began to look for matches, and while diving for the box under the table added: "And not very far from here either. That little village up there you know." "No!
I will write to one of the city missionaries whom I know, and ask him to " "No, but, papa dear papa, we must go. The city missionary could never say how very, very sorry I am that he should have broken his leg while helping me.
