It was a matter of unusual interest to them that a plantation of four thousand acres had been left unincumbered to the disposal of a handsome, inconsolable, childless Creole widow of thirty. A btise of some sort might safely be looked for. But time passing, the anticipated folly failed to reveal itself; and the only wonder was that Thrse Lafirme so successfully followed the methods of her departed husband.

But that wrong doing presented as a tangible abuse and defiance of authority, served to move her to action. She felt at once the weight and sacredness of a trust, whose acceptance brought consolation and awakened unsuspected powers of doing.
