Excerpt: ...week, eh? In the morning?" "Do!" cried Alvina, as Miss Pinnegar came through the door. He glanced quickly over his shoulder. "Oh!" cried Miss Pinnegar. "I couldn't imagine who it was." She eyed the young fellow sharply. "Couldn't you?" said Alvina. "We brought back these things." "Oh yes. Well-you'd better come into the other room, to the fire," said Miss Pinnegar.
