Will you really, Massa Fox? exclaimed Nancy, in affected delight. "Oh, golly, how rich I'll be!" 鈥榃ell, what do I care? What is it to me? It is quite proper of him.

Between Grant and Lincoln there came to be perfect sympathy of thought and action. The men had in their nature (though not in their mental equipment) much in common. Grant carries his army through the spring of 1864, across the much fought over territory, marching and fighting from day to day towards the south-west. The effort is always to outflank Lee's right, getting in between him and his base at Richmond, but after each fight, Lee's army always bars the way. Marching out of the Wilderness after seven days' fierce struggle, Grant still finds the line of grey blocking his path to Richmond. The army of the Potomac had been marching and fighting without break for weeks. There had been but little sleep, and the food in the trains was often far out of the reach of the men in the fighting line. Men and officers were alike exhausted. While advantages had been gained at one point or another along the line, and while it was certain that the opposing army had also suffered severely, there had been no conclusive successes to inspirit the troops with the feeling that they were to seize victory out of the campaign. Just then the door opened, and Roland entered. All of which was pleasant for Oliver to hear. I happened during the following winter, when in prison in Danville, to meet a Confederate lieutenant who had been on Early's staff and who had lost an arm in this little campaign.

"And," added the lieutenant, "when Early was angry, the atmosphere became blue." This morning, at Peshawur, down come the police on my houseboat鈥攖hree of them鈥攁nd their leader explains matters.
