“Will you take a little letter from me to your father, Una?”
“Oh, are you going to marry him, Miss West?” asked Una eagerly.
“Perhaps—if he really wants me to,” said Rosemary, blushing again.
“I’m glad—I’m glad,” said Una bravely. Then she looked up, with quivering lips. “Oh, Miss West, you won’t turn father against us—you won’t make him hate us, will you?” she said beseechingly.
