Sam opened llic door, look our coats, and led us into the library, where Florabellc lay on a couch.' They both looked very bored and extremely glad o£ an interruption. They knew of the excursion to Binghamlon and thai JVekon had planned to go from there to New York, but nothing "Where is Amy? . . . Did you have a nice day? . . . Did Nelson get off nil right? . . . Would you like a drink?" we were asked practically simultaneously. Father said he believed he would like a drink. I said we had had a wonderful day and that I for one had had enough to drink.. I added: "Nelson blew xis to champagne. The four of us drank two whole bottles of champagne. I'm not sober yet." "How perfectly darling of Nelson! Bain, why don't v/c ever have champagne? You know I'm era?,} about'it. But I suppose it costs too much." "Well, champagne Usually means a celebration or something/' San said good-naturedly, "Nelson doesn't have lo wail foi ft special occasion." "You're wrong there," Fathe said. "This was an extra spccia occasion.". Sam was mixing Father's drinV from a tray Weyman had brough in. He hold it up to.the light. "Not Ills birthday, is it? 1 ' "No, sir," said 'Wcyman from Ih door. "His birthday's in July." Father wailed until Weyman id closed the door. "No, it wasn't his birthday. ..ouise, you tell them." * « * 4 TT was his wedding day," I said. "He and Arny were married in linghamton and are now nn their vay lo New York on their honey- locm." Sam looked utterly flabbcrgasl- id. lie put down the glnss. "Why, tho old fnxt Why in icaveu's name didn't ho tell me? Vhy the mystery? You're not jok- ng by any chance?" I shook my head. "Amy saict she didn't want to nvolve yon. She said they didn'l ,'ant any excitement." Flora sat up, throwing back the hawl ih:il covered her. Her checks vcrc flushed, and her eyes looked uccr and. unnnlunil. "It was cruel," she said. "Poor Sister! ... I shall never forgive my. Never." "Now there, sweetness','*, Father aid, "you mustn't gtl so excited. After all, it Nelson wanted tt: ntn-ry Amy, there wasn't any good cason why ho shouldn't" "It was horrible," Flora insisted lystcrically. "Nelson always made \nniibcllc think . . . Amy had no ht to marry him. Oh, she's, cruel, cruel, ;md I hale her! 1 hale her." She began to sob wildly Father and I got up to go, bu Sara insisted on our staying. H< ;ot Flora to her feel and mil hi. arm around her and half coaxed :ialf forced her upstairs. We waited a long time until Snn came clown. lie said flora was terribly upset over Armsibcllc, he Iwin and best-loved sister. For hi part he liked and admired Am enormously, and he didn't lik- Annabellc. lie thought Nelson hat done very well for himself. Father told Sam that Ncfso wanted to buy the house across th street so that he and Amy, Tollivcr, and Annabellc could live together. Sam said he was db ppointcd. lie wanted Annabel to nd her mother out of the ncigh- orhood. 13ut of course Diat was f cl son's business, and if he wanted house he should have it. • * * ' nS.
