Madame Cerise entered. It is scarcely necessary to say that she was an English womanor, rather, an Irish woman. She was short and fat, with a round, good-natured face, and she and Lady Wyndover greeted each other almost as if they were friends.
I have always loved you! she whispered; and he could feel her lips move.She could not help doing what she did, being what she is.

Esmeralda looked at her dreamily.Tell me about it, he said, invitingly; and he drew her out as an experienced man of the world can so easily do when he is dealing with an unsophisticated girl. But, though Esmeralda talked of the gold digging, the wild camps, the broad valleys, the lofty mountains, the intense heatin short, the place that had been home to hershe mentioned no names; only alluded to Varley Howard as her guardian, and said absolutely nothing of Norman Druce.
