He was polite, of Course; but. in so far, as Mary-Franc.es was, able-to. judge by the dint light shed; from the one small globe high in the bail ceiling, Cecljy's admiration af. him was unwarranted.

A pair of scissors lay invitingly open on the discolored brocade seat of the 1 divan: scraps of serving were littered about everywhere.
