Heinrich smiled. "You will never learn that from me and you should remember that your conduits are laid only seven inches below the surface of the street; it was hardly a man-sized job."

Cast away day-book and ledger, green bag and yardstick; let us go straightway into the country and buy a farm. But before the deeds are actually delivered, before your feet have finally deserted the pavement to make life-long acquaintance with the dew, it will be worth while to ascertain whether the pitcher's word is as good as its bond.

The incident of the children had shaken her nerves, and she longed to be away from the place and its associations. Even Eaglehawk Neck with its curious dog stages and its "natural pavement", did not interest her. McNab's blandishments were wearisome.
