And then she looked as if she was tempted to reveal some secret that she was bound not to tell. 'Sinfi's been very bad, she went on, 'but she's better now. Her daddy says she's under a cuss. She's been a-wastin' away like, but she's better now. 'So it's Sinfi who is under a curse now, I said to myself. 'I suppose Superstition has at last turned her brain.

There ain't a-many things made o' flesh and blood as can make Sinfi Lovell show the white feather; but I know you'll think the wuss o' me arter this, Hal. But while the pictur were a-showin' I heard my dear mammy's whisper: "Little Sinfi, little Sinfi, beware o' Gorgios! This is the one." By the time we reached the encampment it was quite dark.

And as to reading, I am not sure that the satirical Videy was entirely wrong in saying that Sinfi believed that books 'could talk jis' like men and women. Not a word would she speak, save when she now and then bent down her head to whisper to Pharaoh when that little warrior was inclined to give a disturbing chuckle, or to shake his wattles.

'Oh, if you're friends that's different, said she. 'Meg's gone off 'er 'ead; thinks the p'leace in plain clothes are after 'er. We went up the stairs. The girl followed us.
