"They'd like nothing better, Leeana, than to see me out of the way tonight—before Devens comes out in the morning to finish my will." She sighed. "I guess I shouldn't have gloated over them, but—" When she gave no sign of going on, Leeana reached for the high- necked, long-sleeved flannel gown and the warm flannel wrapper."I'll help you to bed before I go," she said. "And I'll hurry." Miss Maggie gave her a grateful smile and allowed herself to be unbuttoned and bundled into the nightclolhes. But instead ot getting into bed"she went again to her study. Leeana busied herself about the room, hanging the black silk dress and the crisp taffeta petticoat in the closet, placing Miss Maggie's Bible on her night table. Then Miss Maggie was back.

Peter Thorne was perfectly calm and very much in possession of the accent that Leeana knew now wa« feigned. "Bumpety- bumptty—" "Stop HP Leeana cried out, rising unsteadily. "Tut-tut now, eousin, dont get hysterical." Peter'i wordi were taunting, his thin lipj were parted in a mocking imile.
