And was that what it meant when he called me "Una!" and his voice lingered over the word? Looking back now, I can understand lots of things which puzzled and worried me at the time.

A whisper it was a whisper from, perhaps, four miles off secretly announcing a ruin that, being foreseen, was not the less inevitable; that, being known, was not therefore healed.
