She sat down at the little writing table in the window and found note oaper and envelopes It was the first love letter she'd ever written. She supposed 't would almost certainly be the last. She sat nibbling the end of her pen. She made several false starts and then in the end the letter she wrote came quite easily As easily—more easily In tact for then she d have been shy—as I/ she'd been talking to him. She told him that her aunts nad found out about them. That her Aunt Helen had forbidden her to see him or speak to him again. "Please. Paul darling, don't try -to make me break the promise 1 had to give her. Because it wont make any difference. Nothing you can say would make me go back on it. Nothing you can do. So this is the end. "xeept to thank you for all the happiness you've given me Knowing you has been the loveliest thing that has ever happened to me. . . ." She read the letter through and then put it in an envelop* and sealed it She posted it the next morning. It was a Saturday.

"Patience dear, try not to take It too much to heart" "I'm aU right Aunt Alice. At least 1 will be." she said, but her voice was all choked up. She polished vigorously away at the vase to hide her unhappl- ness. • • • 'J'HE weekend routine went Ha usual. Flowers lor the church. The morning service. Patience and her aunts were regular churchgoers. Chatter with the various people thcj knew as they came out. No one at all exciting. No one young and gay. A dull Ute for a girl of 20. thought Miss Alice, as they walked home tc the roost beet that was awaiting them. And then cheered herself by remembering that after al! the dear child went three times a week to London. Patience was 'almost dreading the next 'morning, a came and she thought: "This evening I'D se* him." Only she must take no notice of him. She'd given Aunt Helen her promise. She'd written to him and told him what to expect She couldn't concentrate on her work at the academy. The cutting- out class which usually interested her so much failed to hold her attention. Madame Girard. who was taking it. reproved her sharply. At last It was over. Everything put away. The girls crowding Into the cloakroom. Patience looked at herseli io the mirroi and wondered if she were reaUy the same girl who'd looked In this same mirror last Friday. Then she'd been so happy. In so short a while she'd been going to see him. Well, in so short a while now possibly she'd see him. Only she didn't want to.

Paul looked down at her and now the anger WOE fading from his eyes. "Patience darling, they can't do this thing to you." Patience swallowed hard Her hands gripped the brass rail running along the window. "The trouble Is they can." He looked at her for o long moment. "You're not really fining to let them get away with U?" "How can I help It?" Stand up to them.
