CHAPTER VI

He from his old hereditary nook
Must part; the summons came,--our final leave we took.
WORDSWORTH.

MR. CAURLTON came the next day, but not early, to take Fleda to
Montepoole. She had told her grandfather that she did not think
he would come, because after last night he must know that she
would not want to go. About twelve o'clock however he was there,
with a little wagon, and Fleda was Iain to get her sun-bonnet and
let him put her in. Happily it was her maxim never to trust to
uncertainties, so she was quite ready when he came and they had
not to wait a minute.
Though Fleda had a little dread of being introduced to a
party of strangers and was a good deal disappointed at being
obliged to keep her promise, she very soon began to be glad.
She found her fear gradually falling away before Mr. Carleton's
quiet kind reassuring manner; he took such nice care of her;
and she presently made up her mind that he would manage the
matter so that it would not be awkward. They had so, much
pleasant talk too. Fleda had found before that she could talk to
Mr. Carleton, nay she could not help talking to him; and she
forgot to think about it. And besides, it was a pleasant day, and
they drove fast, and Fleda's particular delight was driving; and
though the horse was a little gay she had a kind of intuitive per-
ception that Mr. Carleton knew how to manage him. So she
gave up every care and was very happy.
When Mr. Carleton asked after her grandfather, Fleda answered
with great animation, "0 he's very well! and such a happy
thing-You heard what that pan said last night, Mr. Carleton,
didn't you '
Yes."
"Well, it is all arranged;-this morning Mr. Jolly-he's a
friend of grandpa's that lives over at Queechy Run, and knew all
about'this-he's a lawyer-he came this morning and told grandpa
that he had found some one that could lend him the money he
