I opened it hastily, and saw to my surprise that it was from Miss thesiger.
The next minute Laurier and thesiger both burst in from the gallery.
thesiger made his first appearance, but not with any great success.
To begin with, they were American, altogether too American for thesiger.
I saw a strong disapproval in Lady thesiger's face, and Coralie's quick eyes, following mine, read the same.
thesiger saw how affectionately the large man bent his head to her.
From the first he had oppressed and offended thesiger by his large and intolerably genial presence.
Only this day I asked Miss thesiger to be my wife, and she consented.
There was a long pause which thesiger, for the life of him, could not fill.
Can I ever tell in words how kindly Lady thesiger received her?
