The idea were worse than the old migration of nations was. Nothing but despotism would rise out of such a fanatical strife of all mankind. And really it is very curious.
How this should be done was the subject of conversation during the walk to the rectory. There they found Elsie just arrived. Mrs. McAravey had been much worse all Saturday, and Elsie could not get away in time for church. She had only come now because the dying woman had expressed a wish to see Mr. Smith.
