In 1959 he married the love of his life, a dolly bird named Lauretta Sullivan.
"Her being away to-day won't make much difference to you and I," replied Lauretta, with careful attention to her pronoun.
Lauretta did, and sat in the parlour tte--tte with Mrs. Tibs.
Yes, Lauretta, our only child, whom you are about to take from us.
Lauretta determined to go,—and, what is more, without her mother.
Nothing shall you glean from me that will be to my hurt, that will step between me and Lauretta.
After tea Mrs. Allan played and sang and she got Lauretta and me to sing too.
How often has Lauretta said during her travels, 'There is only one thing wanting--the presence of my dear mother and father!'
Then befel an event which brought horror and grief to Lauretta.
Carew knelt by Lauretta, and passed his arm tenderly around her.
