All eyes were bent toward them. "She walks like a man," said Madame Varrillat, in the language with which the conversation had opened. "No," said the physician, "like a woman in a state of high nervous excitement." Jean Thompson kept his eyes on the woman, and said: "She must not forget to walk like a woman in the State of Louisiana," as near as the pun can be translated. The company laughed.

And the really handsome man is the most extraordinary of the rarities. No wonder that when he appears he slays them, walks over them like a pestilence! This young Weyburn would touch the fancy of a woman of a romantic turn.

Eliza began work the next day, and Billy did indeed soon find herself "playing" under Bertram's watchful insistence. She resumed her music, and brought out of exile the unfinished song. With Bertram she took drives and walks; and every two or three days she went to see Aunt Hannah and Marie.
