"Well, Marshall, I'll see what I can do. I must join Miss May now, for we have something important to decide, but I won't forget your words."Bridget stood by the window, but she heard none of these soothing sounds. Her spoilt, childish heart was in the most open state of rebellion and revolt.
At the dear old wild Castle in Ireland she had been idolized by everyone, the servants had done her bidding, however extravagant and fanciful that bidding had been. She led her old father where she wished with silken reins. The dogs, the horses, even the cows and the calves, followed Bridget like so many faithful shadows.

They were so tiresome and silly; I didn't see the use of them.""I must have a cupboard like that," said Biddy. "Why, it's perfectly delicious!"In about ten minutes' time Bridget came into the room without knocking.

Small girls are easily influenced, and Bridget and her tribe rushed down the avenue, shouting and whooping as they went.In consequence she was popular, with that mild sort of popularity which is bestowed upon the people who are all patience and have no faculty for inspiring fear.
"I don't think I ever felt my temper more irritated," murmured the good lady under her breath. "Why did I undertake an Irish girl, and one who had never been from home before? Well, the deed is done now, and I must not show impatience, however I may feel it. Bridget, my dear! Bridget O'Hara! Do you hear me?"
"As to disliking Miss O'Hara, it's more a case of despising; she's beneath my dislike."
