“I liked her letter,” said Babie, “and I am glad she was such a daughter to you, mother.  Allen says he is thankful she is not a Japanese with black teeth.”

“He wrote very nicely to her, and so did Elfie,” said her mother.  “And Armine wrote a charming little note, which pleased Primrose best of all.”

“Poor Armine has felt all most deeply,” said Babie.  “Do you remember when he thought it his mission to die and do good to Bobus?  Well, he was sure that, though, as he said, his own life then was too shallow and unreal for his death to have done any good, Jock was meant to produce the effect.”

“And he has—-”

“And oh! how precious it has been to me,” said the mother.  “How the guarding of that secret aided me through the worst of times!”
