Excerpt

ointed him guardian to Mary. And there she is at home--for she would not come to meet you--but there she is, hoping to find you just what you were when you went away, and hating Frenchmen, and britschkas, and finery, and the smell of musk, just as if she were my father's daughter in good earnest.
