"Well, what is it? Make haste, there's a good child, for I must go to Freddie; he's very restless to-night."

Now Susan," in a graver tone, "remember you've promised not to give trouble, and if you're going to cry it will trouble me very much. You must think of poor Freddie and not be silly and selfish, but go away cheerfully on Monday. Will you?"
