The eyes,in the purple of his face, were congested.
He waited a moment, but still she saidnothing.
Also he wasvery solemn and, for him, fidgety and nervous. All that willbe looked into, I promise you, and at once. Jonathan Baxter, the Ostablelawyer who drew the will, had revealed its contents to no one. Benjamin, according to the informationin the second letter, had lived a wild life. Sampson said about him I kept noddin my head. Miss Brewster, did yourbrother show you that will? She wrote to Baxter,explaining the situation. He had waved the ridiculous willbefore her eyes as a bait. And, as the thought came to her, if you havethem now you must have paid the assessment on them.

You can count thatin as part of the loan, if youd rather.

Twas a loan, and on goodcollateral security, thats all twas.
Its such a comfort, she declared, pressing Marys hand.
When he goes I shant have any one even as closeas a first cousin left livin. Well, Captain Cummings, she said, how do you do? It had seemedsuch a generous act on his part.
