She made me. Then he hangs his cloak and hat on the rack. Mrs Dudgeon dries her eyes and looks up at him. Sistcr : the Lord has laid his hand very heavily upon you. But I do think it hard. What call had Timothy to go to Springtown, and remind everybody that he belonged to a man that was being hanged? Timothy never acknowledged him as his brother after we were married : he had too much respect for me to insult me with such a brother. Would such a sel- fish wretch as Peter have come thirty miles to see Timothy hanged, do you think? Not thirty yards, not he. How- ever, I must bear my cross as best I may : least said is soonest mended.

He may end that way himself, the wicked, dissolute, god- less — [she suddenly stops; her voice fails ; and she asks, with evident dread] Did Timothy see him? He Only saw him in the crowd : they did not speak. Your husband was greatly touched and impressed by his brother's awful death. Anderson breaks off to demand with some indignation] Well, wasnt it only natural, Mrs Dudgeon? He softened towards his prodigal son in that moment. He sent for him to come to see him.

Ycs ; but Richard would not come. He sent his father a message ; but I'm sorry to say it was a wicked message — an awful message. What was it? That hc would stand by his wicked uncle, and stand against his good parents, in this world and the next. He will be punished for it — in both worlds.

That is not in our hands, Mrs Dudgeon. Did I say it was, Mr Anderson? We are told that the wicked shall be punished. Why should we do our duty and keep God's law if there is to be no differ- ence made between us and those who follow their own likings and dislikings, and make a jest of us and of their Maker's word? Well, Richard's earthly father has been merci- ful to him ; and his heavenly judge is the father of us all. If I am against him who has any right to be for him?

I should have asked you before; but I'm so troubled. Thank you. Did Timothy —? In his last hours he changed his mind. I had no power to prevent him giving what was his to his own son. He had nothing of his own. His money was the money I brought him as my marriage portion. It was for me to deal with my own money and my own son.

He dare not have done it if I had been with him ; and well he knew it.

That was why he stole away like a thief to take advantage of the law to rob me by making a new will behind my back. The more shame on you, Mr Anderson, — you, a minister of the gospel — to act as his accomplice in such a crime. Well, of your disappointment, if you can find it in your heart to think that the better word. My heart! And since when, pray, have you begun to hold up our hearts as trustworthy guides for us? We Act I The Devil's Disciple 1 1 arc told that the heart of man is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked.

My heart belonged, not to Timothy, but to that poor wretched brother of his that has just ended his days with a rope round his neck — aye, to Peter Dudgeon. You know it : old Eli Hawkins, the man to whose pulpit you succeeded, though you are not worthy to loose his shoe latchet, told it you when he gave over our souls into your charge. He warned me and strengthened me against my heart, and made me marry a Godfearing man — as he thought.

What else but that discipline has made me the woman I am? And you, you, who followed your heart in your marriage, you talk to me of what I find in my heart. Go home to your pretty wife, man ; and leave me to my prayers. And whom to forgive, I hope — Eli Hawkins and myself, if we have ever set up our preaching against His law. Just one word — on necessary business, Mrs Dudgeon. There is the reading of the will to be gone through ; and Richard has a right to be present.

He is in the town; but he has the grace to say that he does not want to force himself in here. Hc shall comc here. Does he expect us to leave his father's house for his convenience t Let them all come, and come quickly, and go quickly. They shall not make the will an excuse to shirk half their day's work. I shall be ready, never fear. When did I lose it? Now youre answered.

Yes : I am answered. Then she calls, in her hard, driviiig, wrathful way] Christy. Get up out of that; and be ashamed of yourself — sleeping, and your father dead! I waut nouc of your sulks. Here: help me to set this table. We shall have the minister back here with the lawyer and all the family to read the will before you have done toasting yourself. Go and wake that girl ; and then light the stove in the shed : you cant have your breakfast here. And mind you wash yourself, and make yourself fit to receive the company. Also two green ware plates, on one of which she puts a barnbrack with a knife beside it.


On th:e other she shakes some biscuits out of a tin, putting back one or two, and counting the rest]. Now mind : there are ten biscuits there : let there be ten there when I come back after dressing myself. And keep your fingers off the raisins in that cake. And tell Essie the same. I suppose I can Act I The Devil's Disciple 1 3 trust you to bring in the case of stuffed birds without breaking the glass?

Thats no answer to make to me, sir. Go and do as youre told. Stop : take down that shutter before you go, and let the daylight in : you cant expect me to do all the heavy work of the house with a great heavy lout like you idling about. Christy takes the window bar out of its clamps, and puts it aside ; then opens the shutter, shewing the grey morning.

Mrs Dudgeon takes the sconce from the mantelshelf; blows out the candle ; extinguishes the snuff by pinching it with her fingers, first licking them for the purpose; and replaces the sconce on the shelf CHRISTY [looking through the window] Here's the minister's wife. Is she coming here? What does she want troubling me at this hour, before I'm properly dressed to receive people? Youd better ask her. She comes after him, plying him with instructions].

Tell that girl to come to me as soon as she's had her breakfast. And tell her to make herself fit to be seen before the people. Nice manners, that! She is pretty and proper and ladylike, and has been admired and petted into an opinion of herself sufficiently favorable to give her a self-assurance which serves her i? She has a pretty taste in dress, and in her face the pretty lines of a sentimental character formed by dreams. Rather a pathetic creature to any sympathetic observer who knows how rough a place the world is.

Can I do anything for you, Mrs Dudgeon? Can I help to get the place ready before they come to read the will? Perhaps you had rather I did not intrude on you j ust now. Oh, one more or less will make no difference this morning, Mrs Anderson. Now that youre here, youd better stay. If you wouldnt mind shutting the door! I must go and tidy myself a bit. I suppose you dont mind stopping here to receive anyone that comes until I'm ready. Leave them to me, Mrs Dudgeon ; and take your time.

Oh, here you are! Mrs Dudgeon takes her roughly by the arm and pulls her round to inspect the results of her attempt to clean and tidy herself — results which shew little practice and less conviction]. Thats what you call doing your hair properly, I suppose. It's easy to see what you are, and how you were brought up. You sit down there in the corner by the fire; and when the company comes dont dare to speak until youre spoken to.

Your father's people had better see you and know youre there : theyre as much bound to keep you from starvation as I am. At any rate they might help. But let me have no chattering and making free with them, as if you were their equal. Do you hear? Well, then go and do as youre told. If she gives you any trouble, just tell me ; and I'll settle accounts with her.

JUDITH [patronizing Essie, and arranging the cake and wine on the table more becomingly] You must not mind if your aunt is strict with you. She is a very good woman, and desires your good too. JUDITH [annoyed with Essie for her failure to be consoled and edified, and to appreciate the kindly condescension of the remark] You are not going to be sullen, I hope, Essie.

Thats a good girl! They wouldnt have anything to do with him : they were too religious. Father used to talk about Dick Dudgeon ; but I never saw him. Essie : do you wish to be a really respectable and grateful girl, and to make a place for yourself here by steady good conduct? Then you must never mention the name of Richard Dudgeon — never even think about him.

He is a bad man. What has he done? You must not ask questions about him, Essie.


You are too young to know what it is to be a bad man. But he is a smuggler ; and he lives with gypsies ; and he has no love for his mother and his family ; and he wrestles and plays games on Sunday instead of going to church. Never let him into your presence, if you can help it, Essie ; and try to keep yourself and all womanhood un- spotted by contact with such men. They are beginning to come. Now remember your aunt's directions, Essie ; and be a good girl.

Good morning, Mr Dudgeon. Will you open the door, please : the people have come. Good morning. The morning is now fairly bright and warm; and Anderson. He is accompanied by Lawyer Hawkins, a brisk, middle aged man in brown riding gaiters and yellow breeches, looking as much squire as solicitor. He and Anderson are allowed precedence as repre- senting the learned professions.

After them comes the family, headed by the senior uncle, William Dudgeon, a large, shape- less man, bottle-nosed and evidently no ascetic at table. His clothes are not the clothes, nor his anxious wife the wife, of a prosperous man. The junior uncle. Hawkins at once goes briskly to the table and takes the chair nearest the sofa, Christy having left the inkstand there.

He Act 1 The Devil's Disciple 17 puts his hat on the fioor beside him, and produces the will. Uncle William comes to the fire and stands on the hearth warm- ing his coat tails, leaving Mrs William derelict near the door. Uncle Titus, zvho is the ladfs man of the family, rescues her by giving her his disengaged arm and bringing her to the sofa, where he sits down warmly between his own lady and his brother's. Anderson hangs up his hat and waits for a word with Judith. She will be here in a moment. Are we all here?

The callousness with which Christy names the reprobate jars on the moral sense of the family. Uncle William shakes his head slowly and repeatedly. Mrs Titus catches her breath con- vulsively through her nose. Her husband speaks. Well, I hopc he will have the grace not to come. I hope so. The Dudgeons all murmur assent, except Christy, who goes to the window and posts himself there, looking out. Hawkins smiles secretively as if he knew something that would change their tune if they knew it.

Anderson is uneasy : the love of solemn family councils, especially funereal ones, is not in his nature. Judith appears at the bedroom door. All rise, except Essie. Mrs Titus and Mrs William produce equally clean handker- chiefs and weep. It is an affectiiig moment]. Would it comfort you, sister, if we were to offer up a prayer? In our hearts we ask a blessing. ALL [except Essie] Amen. Then say it, like a good girl. We know who you are ; but we are willing to be kind to you if you are a good girl and deserve it.

We are all equal before the Throne. This republican sentiment does not please the women, who are convinced that the Throne is precisely the place where their superiority, often questioned in this world, will be recognized and rewarded. Anderson and Hawkins look round sociably. Essie, with a gleam of interest breaking through her misery, looks up. Christy grins and gapes expectantly at the door. The rest are petrified with the intensity of their sense of Virtue menaced with outrage by the approach of flaunting Vice.

The reprobate appears in the doorway, graced beyond his alleged merits by the morning sun- light. He is certainly the best looking member of the family; but his expression is reckless and sardonic, his manner defiant and satirical, his dress picturesquely careless. Only, his fore- head and mouth betray an extraordinary steadfastness ; and his eyes are the eyes of a fanatic. How happy you all look! Well, mother: keeping up appearances as usual? Uncle Titus promptly marks his approval of her action by rising from the sofa, and placing a chair for her to sit down upon'].

Uncle William! I havnt seen you since you gave up drinking. And now, where is that upright horsedealer Uncle Titus? Uncle Titus : come forth. As usual, looking after the ladies! Richard turns to the table]. Ah, Mr Anderson, still at the good work, still shepherding them. Keep them up to the mark, minister, keep them up to the mark. Pastor, for the sake of old times. You know, I think, Mr Dudgeon, that I do not drink before dinner. You will, some day. Pastor : Uncle William used to drink before breakfast.

Come : it will give your sermons unction. But do not begin on my mother's company sherry. I stole some when I was six years old ; and I have been a tem- perate man ever since. By the way, did I hear, or did I not, that our late lamented Uncle Peter, though unmarried, was a father?

He had only one irregular child, sir. Only one! He thinks one a mere trifle! I blush for you, Uncle Titus. Mr Dudgeon : you are in the presence of your mother and her grief. It touches me profoundly. By the way, what has become of the irregular child? Why the devil didnt you tell me that before? Children suffer enough in this house without — [He hurries remorsefully to Essie]. Come, little cousin! Her tear stained face affects him violeiitly ; and he hursts out, in a transport of wrath] Who has been making her cry?

Who has been ill- treating her? I will bear no more of this. Leave my house. How do you know it's your house until the will is read? Ladies and gentlemen : as the eldest son of my late father, and the unworthy head of this household, I bid you welcome. By your leave.

Minister Anderson : by your leave, Lawyer Hawkins. The head of the table for the head of the family. The relatives freeze with horror']. Lawyer Hawkins : business, business. Get on with the will, man. Do not let yourself be ordered or hurried, Mr Hawkins. I will not keep you one second, Mr Dudgeon. Just while I get my glasses — [he fumbles for them. The Dudgeons look at one another with misgiviyig]. They notice your civility, Mr Hawkins. They are prepared for the worst.

A glass of wine to clear your voice before you begin. Thank you, Mr Dudgeon. Your good health, sir. Yours, sir. Essie, who has been hanging on Ins every word and move- ment, rises stealthily and slips out behind Mrs Dudgeon through 2 2 Three Plays for Puritans Act I the bedroom door, returning presently with a jug and going out of the house as quietly as possible. The will is not exactly in proper legal phrase- ology.

No : my father died without the consolations of the law. Good again, Mr Dudgeon, good again. Ready, aye ready. For what we are about to receive, may the Lord make us truly thankful. Go ahead. I hereby revoke all former wills made by me and declare that I am of sound mind and know well what I am doing and that this is my real will according to my own wish and affections. How if she wont have him? She will if I have fifty pounds. Good, my brother. Her own money! A vcry good way to put God's truth. It was every penny my own. Fifty-two pounds a year!

And this is my reward! It cannot be helped, Mrs Dudgeon. We must take what comes to us. Go on, sir. The fatted calf, Minister, the fatted calf. The devil! Are there conditions.? James shall live in clover. Go on. Prodger Feston shall get drunk every Saturday.

You shall have both. Anything more, Mr Hawkins? My mother does not say Amen. Remember, I have his rightful, legal will, drawn up by yourself, leaving all to me. Is it a legal will? The courts will sustain it against the other. But why, if the other is more lawfully worded? Because, sir, the courts will sustain the claim of a man — and that man the eldest son — against any woman, if they can. I warned you, Mrs Dudgeon, when you got me to draw that other will, that it was not a wise will, and that though you might make him sign it, he Act I The Devil's Disciple 25 would never be easy until he revoked it.

But you wouldnt take advice ; and now Mr Richard is cock of the walk. This is the signal for the breaking- up of the party. Anderson takes his hat from the rack and joins Uncle I'Filliam at the fire. Titus fetches Judith her things from the rack. The three on the sofa rise and chat with Hawkins. Mrs Dudgeon,, now an intruder in her own house, stands inert,, crushed by the weight of the law on women, accepting it, as she has been trained to accept all monstrous calamities, as proofs of the greatness of the power that inflicts them, and of her own wormlike insignificance.

For at this time, remember, Mary W oilstone craft is as yet only a girl of eighteen, and her Vin- dication of the Rights of Women is still fourteen years off. Mrs Dudgeon is rescued from her apathy by Essie, who comes back with the jug full of water. She is taking it to Richard when Mrs Dudgeon stops her. How dare you go out by yourself after the orders I gave you? He asked for a drink — [she stops, her tongue cleaving to her palate with terror]. I believe I did.

  4. Her hand shakes]. I — [She pours out the water]. His mocking expression returns instantly. Mrs Dudgeon being in Essie'' s way as they co? What do they call you? Essie, to be sure. Are you a good girl, Essie? I think so. I mean I — I hope so. Essie : did you ever hear of a person called the devil? Minister : I do not interfere with your sermons : do not you interrupt mine.

    They call me the Devil's Dis- ciple. Why do you let them? I was brought up in the other service ; but I knew from the first that the Devil was my natural master and captain and friend. I saw that he was in the right, and that the world cringed to his conqueror only through fear. I prayed secretly to him ; and he comforted me, and saved me from having my spirit broken in this house of children's tears. I promised him my soul, and swore an oath that I would stand up for him in this world and stand by him in the next. From this day this house is his home ; and no child shall cry in it : this hearth is his altar; and no soul shall ever cower over it in the dark evenings and be afraid.

    Now [turning forcibly on the rest] which of you good men will take this child and rescue her from the house of the devil? You should be burnt alive. But I dont want to. Havc a care, Richard Dudgeon. In an hour from this there will be no law here but martial law. I passed the soldiers within six miles on my way here : before noon Major Swindon's gallows for rebels will be up in the market place. More than you think. He hanged the wrong man at Springtown : he thought Uncle Peter was respect- able, because the Dudgeons had a good name. But his next example will be the best man in the town to whom he can bring home a rebellious word.

    Well, we're all rebels ; and you know it. Yes, you are. You havnt damned King George up hill and down dale as I have ; but youve prayed for his defeat; and you, Anthony Anderson, have conducted the service, and sold your family bible to buy a pair of pistols. They maynt hang me, perhaps ; because the moral effect of the Devil's Disciple dancing on nothing wouldnt help them. But a minister! Would that shew that King George meant business — ha? There is no danger. Long live the devil! Mrs Dudgeon, who is following them] What, mother!

    Are you off too? My dying curse!

    Ha ha ha! Have they forgotten to save your soul in their anxiety about their own bodies? Oh yes : you may stay. His left fist, also clenched, hangs down. Essie seizes it and kisses it, her tears falling on it. He starts and looks at it].

    The devil's baptism! He stoops goodnaturedly to raise her, saying] Oh yes, you may cry that way, Essie, if you like. To the eye of the eighteenth century New Engiander, it is much grander than the plain farmhouse of the Dudgeons ; but it is so plain itself that a modern house agent would let both at about the same rent. The door, between the fireplace and the corner, has neither panels, fingerplates nor handles : it is made of plain boards, and fastens with a latch.

    The table is a kitchen table, with a treacle colored cover of American cloth, chapped at the corners by drap- ing. The tea service on it consists of tzvo thick cups and saucers of the plainest ware, with milk jug and bowl to match, each large enough to contain nearly a quart, on a black japanned tray, and, in the middle of the table, a wooden trencher with a big loaf upon it, and a square half pound block of butter in a crock.

    The big oak press facing the fire from the opposite side of the room, is for use and storage, not for ornament; and the minister's house coat hangs on a peg from its door, shewing that he is out ; for when he is in, it is his best coat that hangs there. His big riding boots stand beside the press, evidently in their usual place, and rather proud of themselves.

    In fact, the evo- lution of the minister's kitchen, dining room and drawing room into three separate apartments has not yet taken place ; and so. To begin zuith, Mrs Anderson is a pleas ant er person to live with than Mrs Dudgeon. This is true ; but to explain a fact is not to alter it; and however little credit Mrs Anderson may deserve for making her home happier, she has certainly succeeded in doing it. The outward and visible signs of her superior social pretensions are, a drugget on the floor, a plaster ceiling between the timbers, and chairs which, though not upholstered, are stained and polished.

    The fine arts are repre- sented by a mezzotint portrait of some Presbyterian divine, a copperplate of Raphael's St Paul preaching at Athens, a rococo presentation clock on the mantelshelf, flanked by a couple of miniatures, a pair of crockery dogs with baskets in their mouths, and, at the corners, two large cowrie shells. A pretty feature of the room is the low wide latticed window, nearly its whole width, with little red curtains running on a rod half way up it to serve as a blind. There is no sofa; but one of the seats, standing near the press, has a railed back and is long enough to accommodate two people easily.

    On the whole, it is rather the sort of room that the nineteerith century has ended in struggling to get back to under the leadership of Mr Philip Webb and his disciples in domestic architecture, though no genteel clergyman would have tolerated it flfty years ago. The evening has closed in; and the room is dark except for the cosy flrelight and the di7n oil lamps seen through the window in the wet street, where there is a quiet, steady, zuarm, windless downpour of rain.

    As the town clock strikes the quarter, Judith comes in with a couple of candles in earthenware candlesticks, and sets them on the table. Her self-conscious airs of the morn- ing are gone : she is anxious ana frightened. Anderson comes in, wrapped in a very wet cloak. Wait till I get my cloak off. I am not late, am I? The town clock struck the quarter as I came in at the front door. And the town clock is always fast. I'm sure it's slow this evening. I'm so glad youre back. A little. Why, youve been crying. Only a little. Never mind : it's all over now. She starts in terror and retreats to the long seat, listening.

    He's return- ing to barracks, or having his roll called, or getting ready for tea, or booting or saddling or something. Soldiers dont ring the bell or call over the banisters when they want anything: they send a boy out with a bugle to disturb the whole town. Do you think there is really any danger? Not the least in the world. You say that to comfort me, not because you be- lieve it. My dear : in this world there is always danger for those who are afraid of it.

    There's a danger that the house will catch fire in the night ; but we shant sleep any the less soundly for that. Yes, I know what you always say; and youre quite right. Oh, quite right: I know it. But — I suppose I'm not brave : thats all. My heart shrinks every time I think of the soldiers. Never mind that, dear : bravery is none the worse for costing a little pain. Yes, I suppose so. Thats right. Now you make me happy.

    Well, well! I called on Richard Dudgeon on my way back ; but he wasnt in. He was out. He pounced on Peter Dudgeon as the worst character there ; and it is the general belief that he will pounce on Richard as the worst here. Richard said! He said what he thought would frighten you and frighten me, my dear. He said what perhaps God forgive him! It's a terrible thing to think of what death must mean for a man like that.

    I felt that I must warn him. I left a message for him. Only that I should be glad to see him for a moment on a matter of importance to himself, and that if he would look in here when he was passing he would be welcome. I did. Oh, I pray that he may not come! Dont you want him to be warned.? He must know his danger. Oh, Tony, is it wrong to hate a blasphemer and a villain.? I do hate him. I cant get him out of my mind : I know he will bring harm with him.

    He insulted you : he insulted me : he insulted his mother. The worst sin to- wards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be in- different to them : thats the essence of inhumanity. After all, my dear, if you watch people carefully, youll be sur- prised to find how like hate is to love.

    Think of how some of our married friends worry one another, tax one another, are jealous of one another, cant bear to let one another out of sight for a day, are more like jailers and slave-owners than lovers. Think of those very same people with their enemies, scrupulous, lofty, self- respecting, determined to be independent of one another, careful of how they speak of one another — pooh! Oh, dont say that : dont say that, Tony, even in jest. You dont know what a horrible feeling it gives me. He's a bad man ; and you hate him as he deserves. Yes, dear.

    No, only — [Someone knocks at the door. With a start which betrays her intense nervousness, she retreats to the further end of the table with the tea caddy and spoon in her hands, exclaiming] Who's that? He wont eat you, whoever he is. He goes to the door and opens it. Richard is there, with- out overcoat or cloak]. You might have raised the latch and come in, Mr Dudgeon. Nobody stands on much ceremony with us. Judith keeps her eyes on the tea caddy].

    Is it still raining? Raining like the very [his eye catches Judith's as she looks quickly and haughtily up] — I beg your pardon ; but [shewing that his coat is wet] you see —! Take it off, sir ; and let it hang before the fire a while : my wife will excuse your shirtsleeves. Judith : put in another spoonful of tea for Mr Dudgeon. Are even you civil to me now that I have suc- ceeded to my father's estate? Judith throws down the spoon indignantly. Sit down. I come, sir, on your own invitation. You left word you had something important to tell me. I have a warning which it is my duty to give you.

    You are quite safe. His glance softens : he even makes a gesture of excuse. Anderson, seeing that he has tamed him. Mr Dudgeon : you are in danger in this town. What danger? Your uuclc's danger. Major Swindon's gallows. It is you who are in danger. And even if I were in danger, I have duties here which I must not forsake.

    But you are a free man. Why should you run any risk? Do you think I should be any great loss. I think that a man's life is worth saving, whoever it belongs to. Anderson returns the bow humorously]. Come : youll have a cup of tea, to prevent you catching cold? I observe that Mrs Anderson is not quite so pressing as you are, Pastor. I know I am not welcome for my own, madam. But I think I will not break bread here, Minister. Because there is something in you that I respect, and that makes me desire to have you for my enemy.

    Thats well said. On those terms, sir, I will accept your enmity or any man's. Judith : Mr Dudgeon will stay to tea. Sit down : it will take a few minutes to draw by the fire. I was just saying to my wife, Mr Dudgeon, that enmity — [iS" he grasps his hand and looks imploringly at hi? Well, well, I mustnt tell you, I see ; but it was nothing that need leave us worse friend — enemies, I mean. Judith is a great enemy of yours. The latch is lifted frofn without. Christy comes in. Begone, you fool : Mrs Anderson doesnt want the whole family to tea at once.

    Well, does she want to see me? I thought not. She wants to see the minister — at once. I shall cnjoy it more when I come back, dear. The rain's over. At Uncle Titus's. Have you fetched the doctor? No: she didnt tell me to. Go on thcrc at once : I'll overtake you on his doorstep. Wait a moment. Your brother must be anxious to know the particulars.

    Richard adds, a little shamefacedly] We shall know soon enough. Well, perhaps you will let me bring you the news myself. Judith : will you give Mr Dudgeon his tea, and keep him here until I return. Richard, noting the quiver of her lips, is the first to pull himself together. Mrs Anderson : I am perfectly aware of the nature of your sentiments towards me.

    I shall not intrude on you. Good evening. Dont go : please dont go. You dont want me here. What right have you to say that? Do you expect me to stay after that? Yes : I had rather you did go than mistake me about that. I hate and dread you ; and my husband knows it. If you are not here when he comes back, he will believe that I disobeyed him and drove you away.

    RICHARD [ironicallyl Whereas, of course, you have really been so kind and hospitable and charming to me that I only want to go away out of mere contrariness, eh? Stop, stop, stop, I tell you. Dont do that. Need you tear it by being a woman.? Has he not raised you above my insults, like himself? There : thats right. She instantly rises haughtily, and stares at h:i? He at once drops into his usual sardonic tone].

    Ah, thats better. You are yourself again : so is Richard. Well, shall we go to tea like a quiet re- spectable couple, and wait for your husband's return? I — I am sorry to have been so foolish. I am sorry, for your sake, that I am — what I am. Allow me. There is a plate and knife laid there.

    The otl:er plate is laid near it; Act II The Devil's Disciple 39 but Judith stays at the opposite end of the table, next the fire, and takes her place there, drawing the tray towards her]. Do you take sugar? No ; but plenty of milk. Let me give you some toast. The action shews quietly how well he knows that she has avoided her usual place so as to be as far from him as possible].
