鈥楤atala, Jan. 2.鈥擬y darling Laura, the last time the Doctor came, I said to him, 鈥淒octor, you鈥檙e winning the game of chess.鈥?He said, 鈥淵ou鈥檝e been as bad as you could be; but, under God, you owe your life to the excellent nursing.鈥?... My sweet ladies watch me day and night, and seem to think it fun.... I think in England we add to the miseries of sickness by looking so anxious and grave. Then, another thing, love, is this; don鈥檛 shut out friends, for fear they should tire the patient. On Christmas Day, when my life was literally trembling in the balance, I must have seen more than a hundred, and they didn鈥檛 do me a bit of harm.... Good-bye, darling. Please give all sorts of kind messages to dear Leila and your other dear ones, and every one who loves me.... She hung my Hook upon a Tree; 2013年双色球诗谜 From his desk Jack got the unfinished letter that the dead millionaire had left behind him. To Bobo he read that part of it which referred to Miriam. The hopes and fears, the cares and woes of earth. 鈥楳y own sweet Laura,鈥擨 feel that this month must be full of heavy recollections to you; and oh, it is hard to have a bright face to hide a bleeding heart. I hope that you will not put any restraint upon yourself with me.... Easter has its peculiar message of hope and joy to the mourner. Nature, bursting into new life and beauty, repeats the message, gives it to us as it were in an illumination of green leaves and bright blossoms. The Church says, 鈥淐hrist is risen indeed!鈥濃€攁nd all around us joyfully adds, 鈥淎nd we shall rise again!鈥?Your parting with your boy is over; now only the meeting is before you. The shadows fall behind; the glowing sunshine is in front.鈥? Perhaps Shattuck misinterpreted the action. At any rate, he seemed not content with a mere bow. He stepped forward. I was at once interested. It was exactly the sort of thing I had sought. A warm welcome was given to her by the Missionary ladies living there:鈥擬iss Emily Wauton, who still labours on in the same spot, though nearly twenty years have passed since that day; Mrs. Elmslie, widow of Dr. Elmslie, the Pioneer of Missionary work in Cashmere; Miss Florence Swainson; and Miss Ada Smith;鈥攏ot to speak of the C.M.S. Missionary gentleman living close by. Deftly he changed his tactics altogether and the conversation drifted off quickly to inconsequential topics, such as would restore any shaken confidence in him. Clearly it was too early to come to an open break with her. Besides, I understood, Kennedy would rather have allowed her to believe that she had come off victor than to have pressed any minor advantage. The day succeeding Miss Tucker鈥檚 arrival in Amritsar Mrs. Wade came to see her; and during either that call or the next Miss Tucker put the question, 鈥業s my face altered?鈥?Mrs. Wade hesitated, unable to deny that she saw a change. Miss Tucker immediately added: 鈥楧on鈥檛 mind telling me. It is harder to be patient on this pillow than to go inside the Golden Gate.鈥?And to Miss Jackson she said: 鈥楾o depart and to be with Christ is so very much better!鈥?
