Cleopatra looked pleased, and Mrs. Kenyon impatient and 长沙桑拿攻略 disgusted.
“He deceives me as he does her, without doubt.
It is useless to question him further.”
From this time she sedulously watched for an opportunity 长沙桑拿信息 to write a letter and commit it to other hands than the doctor’s. But, that he might not suspect her design, she also wrote regularly, and placed the letters in his hands.
One day the opportunity came. A young man, related to Cleopatra, visited the institution. He understood very well the character of his aunt’s aberration, but was surprised to be told that the quiet lady who bore her company was also crazy.
“What is the nature of her malady?” he enquired of the doctor. “Is she ever violent?”
“She seems rational enough.”
“So she is on all points except one.”
“What is that?”
“She thinks her husband has confined her here in order to enjoy her property. In point of fact she has no property and no husband.”
“That is curious. Why,
then, does she require to be confined?”
“Probably she will soon be released. She 长沙桑拿论坛sn has improved very much since she came here.”
“I am glad my aunt has so quiet a companion.”
“Yes, they harmonize very well. They have never disagreed.”
During one of Mr. Arthur Holman’s visits Mrs. Kenyon managed to slip into his hands a sealed letter.
“Will you have the kindness,” she asked quickly, “to put this into the post-office without informing the doctor?”
“I will,” he answered readily.
“Poor woman!” he thought to himself. “It will gratify her, and her letter will do no harm.”
“I shall have to be indebted to your kindness for a postage-stamp,” she said. “I cannot obtain them here.”
“Oh, don’t mention it,” he said.
“You will be sure not to mention this to the doctor?” said Mrs. Kenyon earnestly.
“On my honor as a gentleman.”
“I believe you,” she said quietly.
