He smiled and waved a dismissing hand. F茅lise, laughing, kissed him on the forehead and tripped away, having little time to spare for pleasantry. Allegra was in raptures with that strange resting-place. Oliver took his lamp and went up slowly to bed. His room was just opposite to Roland's, which adjoined the apartment occupied by his father. The evening meal passed pleasantly. Oliver could not help contrasting it with the dull and formal supper he was accustomed to take at home, and his thoughts found utterance. Ernest grew more and more interested, but in the meekness of his soul said nothing. 鈥淎s I look back upon it,鈥?he said to me but the other day, with a hearty laugh, 鈥淚 respect myself more for having never once got the best mark for an exercise than I should do if I had got it every time it could be got.
