Of O'Kelly I saw nothing more; he was occupied in an adjoining room; and even this element of anxiety was spared me.
But as suddenly stopping, he said, "A friend of yours, O'Kelly?"
Jarman rose to propose the health of the O'Kelly, coupled with that of the Signora.
"Take my purse," whispered O'Kelly, endeavoring to slip it into my hand as he spoke.
"I've been waiting for ye," explained the O'Kelly, speaking low.
Without the slightest hesitation, O'Kelly replied, "To be sure, my boy!"
He fixed a time for me to call again upon him the next day, when Mrs. O'Kelly would be away from home.
O'Kelly, you must know Douglas, you are just the men to suit each other.
All that was commendable in the Signora, she owed to the O'Kelly.
"Take it easy, now; take it easy," the O'Kelly would counsel.
