鈥楶lease, dear grandmother, be more explicit. Is there anything new? You threw out vague hints in your last letter; but I am still quite in the dark.鈥? You refused? 2628国际版彩票 鈥楶ardon me, that assumption is entirely unwarrantable,鈥?replied Mr. Netherpoint. 鈥榃e undertake to prove the contrary, and will produce the man himself.鈥?

Meanwhile gossip busied itself once more with the case. The news of the missing son was freely discussed. Opinions differed very widely. Some held stoutly that he was the man himself; others that barefaced imposture was meant, and would in the long run be brought home to the parties concerned.

Last of all his mother, whose injustice had driven him forth, fell into his arms, imploring his forgiveness, and declared he was hardly at all changed.
