"I could not help myself," replied Dorothy. "You know, of course, Janet, what Bridget did last night?"The children disappeared in as frantic haste to be off as they were a few minutes ago to arrive."Then go and ask, darling. Find Mrs. Freeman, and ask her; it's so easily done."
"Poor girl!" said Evelyn, a wistful expression coming into her eyes.
"Patience," said Mrs. Freeman, from her end of the supper table, "I think we have all finished. Will you say grace?"
"It wasn't father, it was Aunt Kathleen. She chose my outfit in Paris. Oh, I do think it's lovely. I do feel that it's hard to be crushed on every point.""I must have a cupboard like that," said Biddy. "Why, it's perfectly delicious!"

"But Mrs. Freeman said——""Let's run down the road, then, and give her a welcome," said Bridget. "In Ireland we'd take the horses off the carriage, and draw her home ourselves. Of course, we can't do that, but we might go to meet her, waving branches of trees, and we might raise a hearty shout when we saw her coming. Come along, girls—what a lark! I'll show you how we do this sort of thing in old Ireland! Come! we'll cut down boughs as we go along. Come! be quick, be quick!"
"Oh, good gracious me! don't call me Miss O'Hara. I'm Biddy to my friends—Biddy O'Hara, at your service—great fun, too, I can tell you. You ask my father what he thinks of me. Poor old gentleman, I expect he's crying like anything this minute without his Biddy to coddle him. He said I wanted polishing, and so he sent me here. I have never been in England before, and I don't at all know if I will like it. By the way, what's your name? I didn't quite catch it."
"But we are not allowed to cut the boughs, Bridget," said Katie.
