"Why, Dorothy Collingwood; she has gone over to the ranks of the enemy."
"O Janey," exclaimed two of the other girls in a breath, "a committee does sound so absurdly formal."The girls took their places at the table—grace was said, and the meal began.Janet and Olive Moore were returning slowly to the house after a vigorous game of tennis.

I find her tiresome at times, and I admit that she's dreadfully naughty, but it's the sort of naughtiness which comes from simply not knowing. The accident last night might have been a dreadful one, and Bridget certainly deserves the punishment she has got; all the same;—I'm very sorry for her."
"Yes, I am sure she has a good deal of physical courage, but that does not alter the fact of her having defied my authority and led the children into mischief."
