could not at first apportion the sound- i
to trie various group of buildings be-.'
neath me. 'n mv right was a m.-n j
storied mill, wh e bricht windows i
were refievted in the glasy euriai e of a
pond, on the bank of which there
grew, pensive and forlorn, a few scrubby
trees. On my left an aggregation of
long low buildings wish gia-s roof,
that looked with their shining backs
like monstrous, crouching dragons of
antediluvian days. Far.hercp the val
ley was another group of building
wrapped in a cloud of steam. In, me
diately before me was a ruined mill,
onrooied and gaunt, w ith its bell tower
and its tail, cold chimney outline:
against the sky; behind it was another
yronp of irregular buildings. A dozen
tall chimneys poured their smoke into
the sulphurous air, which was pervaded
by a certain glow insufficient to di
si pate the darkness, but enough to make
the stream which wound down the val
ley gleam l.'ka a blaci gigantic make.

and the mo-t musical of tones: i
"You come from the south from i
London; ye?" j
Her ac-ent was that most delightful j
of ail foreign accents the accent of an i
wi u rated Frenchwoman. I answered !
that I had come from London, though
I was not native there.
"I, also," said she, "come from the
onth; from London last, but from
Paris before."
Here wa common ground for pleas
ant reminiscence, and wa became
friends at once.
