About this product
- DescriptionOn the day when I found myself with twopence in my pocket, I naturally made up my mind to go round the world. It was my stepfather's death that drove me to it. I had never seen my stepfather. Indeed, I never even thought of him as anything more than Colonel Watts-Morgan. I owed him thing, except my poverty. He married my dear mother when I was a girl at school in Switzerland; and he proceeded to spend her little fortune, left at her sole disposal by my father's will, in paying his gambling debts. After that, he carried my dear mother off to Burma; and when he and the climate between them had succeeded in killing her, he made up for his appropriations at the cheapest rate by allowing me just eugh to send me to Girton. So, when the Colonel died, in the year I was leaving college, I did t think it necessary to go into mourning for him. Especially as he chose the precise moment when my allowance was due, and bequeathed me thing but his consolidated liabilities. 'Of course you will teach, ' said Elsie Petheridge, when I explained my affairs to her. 'There is a good demand just w for high-school teachers.
