Kent drew her close in his arms. “When you are stronger,” he whispered, “we will go over that hidden trail together, past the Watcher, toward Dawson. For it must be that over there—we will find—a missioner—” He paused.
“Please go on, Jeems.”
“And you will be—my wife.”
“Yes, yes, Jeems—forever and ever. But, Jeems”—her arms crept up about his neck—“very soon it will be the first of August.”
“And in that month there come through the mountains, each year, a man and a woman to visit us—mother Anne’s father and mother. And mother Anne’s father—”
“Is a missioner, Jeems.”
And Kent, looking up in this hour of his triumph and joy, believed that in the Watcher’s face he caught for an instant the passing radiance of a smile.

Please note neither this listing nor its contents are final til midnight of the last day of the month of any such announcement. The official release date of all Project Gutenberg Etexts is at Midnight, Central Time, of the last day of the stated month.

These Web sites include award-winning information about Project Gutenberg, including how to donate, how to help produce our new etexts, and how to subscribe to our email newsletter (free!).
Those of you who want to download any Etext before announcement can get to them as follows, and just download by date.
