I see what you are after; but youll not wheedle me. I am no cats-paw.
But it must be doneit is quite a right thing and a necessary thing.
How you encroach! Remember, I managed the matter of my own free will before.
And you will again.
I wont. The business gave me far too much trouble. I like my ease.
Mr. Moore wishes to see me, Martin, and I wish to see him.
I dare saycoolly.
It is too bad of your mother to exclude his friends.
Tell her so.
His own relations.
Come and blow her up.
You know that would advance nothing. Well, I shall stick to my point. See him I will. If you wont help me, Ill manage without help.
Do. There is nothing like self-reliance self-dependence.
I have no time to reason with you now; but I consider you provoking. Good-morning.
Away she went, the umbrella shut, for she could not carry it against the wind.
She is not vapid; she is not shallow, said Martin. I shall like to watch and mark how she will work her way without help. If the storm were not of snow, but of firesuch as came refreshingly down on the cities of the plainshe would go through it to procure five minutes speech of that Moore. Now, I consider I have had a pleasant morning. The disappointments got time on; the fears and fits of anger only made that short discourse pleasanter, when it came at last. She expected to coax me at onceshell not manage that in one effort: she shall come again, again, and yet again. It would please me to put her in a passion, to make her cry. I want to discover how far she will gowhat she will do and dareto get her will. It seems strange and new to find one human being thinking so much about another as she thinks about Moore. But it is time to go homemy appetite tells me the hour. Wont I walk into that goose! And well try whether Matthew or I shall get the largest cut of the apple-pie to-day.
