It was her husband who was driving the zebras." "That makes a difference. Our spirited young aristocracy! I understand that the firm's productions are used exclusively up at Gallows. Glad you mentioned the name, Sharper." "And can I have that partnership now?" asked Luke. "Not immediately. Get on with your work." But it was impossible to work with the image of Jona still in his mind.

Not that anyone in particular expected "them poor Hayneses" to keep bright or "chirk up." As far back as he could remember, Luke had realized that the hand of God was laid on his family. Dragging his bad leg up the hill pastures after the cow, day in and day out, he had evolved a sort of patient philosophy about it.
