Excerpt

ad not, that he could not have done anything that even seemed mean.

He flushed. ``No--no,'' he stammered. ``No, indeed, Hilda. Don't think--''

She looked contempt. ``Well, you've won. Come down Sunday afternoon. I suppose I'll have to endure it.''

``Hilda, you're wrong. I will NOT come!'' He was angry, but his mind was confused. He loved her with all the strength of his simple, straightforward nature. Therefore he appeared at his worst before her--usually either incoherent or dumb.
