Synopsis
Purchase of this book includes free trial access to www.million-books.com where you can read more than a million books for free. This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: CHAPTER III. Mr. Rapham's View Of Political Economy. Itghtmares, however, pass with the darkness that gives them birth. Next morning both father and daughter awoke to a cheerful aspect of things.

But she had her wits about her; she was fully alive to the advantages of her position; she would see that it was to her own interest to humour him as he intended to humour her.

She looked rather diverted than shocked, this time. The incongruity of her father's speech tickled her fancy. Although so young she knew something of the world, and the thought at once struck her, as if it were possible to repudiate charities in England ...
