"It is nearly five o'clock," I said, as we at last had restored everything to order, "and this whole day has been frittered away in the veriest trifles. It isn't living to live so. Who is the better for my being in the world since six o'clock this morning?" "I am for one," she said, kissing my hot cheeks; "and you have given a great deal of pleasure to several persons.
