While we are discussing what is to take place in six weeks' time, Mrs. Freeman and Miss Patience are driving up the avenue with somebody else. Girls, the new inmate of Mulberry Court has begun to put in an appearance on the scene.""I must have a cupboard like that," said Biddy. "Why, it's perfectly delicious!""I don't suppose that Evelyn Percival is to rule the school. She is away at present, and we can't wait on her will and pleasure.

Dorothy's compartment was the best in the room; it contained a large window looking out over the flower garden, and commanding a good view of the sea.
