When I reached home from afternoon school, I went up to a little upper chamber which Wilma and I had as our own, and there I found my sister - who was at the time a fair young maiden of thirteen - busy with her needle.

"Well Sister," said I "so we are to have another of these good gentlemen tonight."

"He has come," she said mysteriously.

"Has he? What is he like?" I asked.

"I have not seen him,  for he is closeted with our father in his private chamber."

"Will he sup openly with us tonight?"

"Yes I think so. Elspeth will keep a careful watch, and there is a door behind the tapestry, you know, in case of a surprise."
