Mothers were queer creatures where their children were concerned. Sauce for the goose was not sauce for the gander. About?? began Miss Pettigrew desperately. Miss LaFosse leaned forward eagerly. Is everything all right?? Absolutely,? said Miss Pettigrew. You can set your mind at rest.? Oh, you darling!? s clasped hands, fell two drops of water and two more were trickling down her cheeks. Miss Pettigrew flushed a delicate pink. I have not,? had much affection in my life.? Oh, you poor thing,? said Miss LaFosse gently.

Miss Pettigrew gave it up. These conversational pyrotechnics were beyond her. She stared at him. He was dapper, neat, brisk, with brilliant, liquid brown eyes and dark hair. He had a jutting nose, a full-lipped mouth and a look about him that said he was not a man to play tricks with, yet a hint he could be pleasant enough if folks were pleasant with him. And yes,? somewhere in his ancestry there has been a Jew.? m not. m hungry. I want my breakfast.? Breakfast?? gasped Miss LaFosse. Breakfast!
