most as would a cl-lld who had
been struck. Then, as if bringing
himself back by a mighty effort
from some distant place where his
soul had wanderei, he put the lit-,
tie trunk down upon the table and
turned. to me with a resumption
of the poise which had completely
deserted him at h(a first sight of
the memory-haunted thing. ' .,
' "I must crarev youf . pardon,

"I know, father." I said softly.
He brought his eyes back to my
face, let them rest there.
"Do you feel It
too?" His voice was a whisper.
I brought myself back to san
ity with a jerk. I didn't know to
what lengths Ithis obsession of my
father's might carry him, and felt
the necessity of injecting a touch
of the commonplace into the sit
uation. "No," I prevaricated, with al
most a curt air. "Where is the
key for this?" I asked the ques
tion of myself, then answered it
as quickly. "Oh, yes, I remem
I went to my desk, and from
a drawer took a small
holding only the keys of the
things-which I didn't need to open
very often. From It I selected an 1
old brass key and put It into my
father's outstretched hand. His
fingers trembled perceptibly as he
took It, and it was with a rever
ent air that he Inserted It In the
lock, turned It and threw the top
of the little trunk back.
I knew, pf . course, what would
meet our eyes packages and
packages "or letters, closely tied
together so as to occupy the least
possible space. There were other
things In the bottom of the trunk,
mementoes of my mother more
precious than letters, the inlaid
lock' box "which had - been my
grandmother's, and which, with
its contents, I meant to show my
father when we should come to it,
bat the packages of letters com
posed the entire top layer.
. They were the letters my father
and mother had written each oth

rfage and in the early years of
their marital life. Why my mo

I never could fathom. I fear that
I should have burned every scrap

never even untied the knots
which my little mother's frail
hands had fashioned in the strings
whieh held them together. In the
old days before my father came
back into my life I had hated him
so savagely that I could not bear
to look at them. And since I had
learned to forgive him and to love
him I had felt someway that they
were hot for my eyes until after
my father had had an opportun

the ones he wished to give me,
