"My aunt will be down presently, Mr. Nuttell....in the meantime you must try and put with me."
"You may wonder why we keep that window open on an october afternoon...out through the window, three years ago to a day, her husband and her two younfer brothers went off for their day's shooting. they never came back"
I hope you don't mind the open window.... my husband brothers will be home directly from the shooting and they always come this way. they've been out, for the snipe in the marshes to-day, so they'll make a fine mess over my poor carpets. So like you men-folks, isn't you?
