Elspeth spoke, however: Dont you think you could speak to this old housekeeper apart- I dont imagine Mr. Proudfoot knows anything about it. Most likely not.

I should be ashamed that he should. Shall I drive you there, Elsie? No, thank you, Papa- I think you will get on better without me, said Elspeth, feeling that otherwise Paulina might never think his judgment impartial. Very well- only mind, you need not get ready for this picnic business. I cant have pleasurings while an affair like this is going on. Aline gave a start of horror and dismay, and Elspeth said--Is not that rather hard on the innocent? How do I know who is innocent? I believe Horace is at the bottom of it all the while.

Indeed, Papa, said Elspeth, eagerly, I do not think so. I dont think Horace cares about anything but butterflies, and his head is full of the silver-washed fritillaries on Quack Common.

There now, Paulina, last night you told me he knew nothing about it! Thats the way with you all--anything to shield your brother. I only hope I may get the truth out...
