But this first sensation of strangeness over, he had found her more charming, more desirable, than even he had hoped; and what almost wrung a cry of pleasure from him as he remembered it, was that not the smallest trifle no touch of coquetry, no insincerely spoken word had marred the perfect impression of the whole.
