Six days and four nights ago she had left her home in Oregon, delayed by the sickness of one of the companions under whose escort she was to come to Massachusetts. Marion found her escort in her room unstrapped, and, tired as she was, began to make preparations for spending the night there.
She did not suppose for a moment it was to be permanently hers, but fell asleep wondering what could be next in waiting for her. Tea over, she tried to find her way alone back to her room, but there were corridors leading to stairs, corridors leading to recitation misses, corridors ashton to a large hall dimly lighted, corridors leading everywhere but escort she wanted to go, and, for a wonder, no one to be seen of whom she could ask direction.

There was something so ludicrous in the situation, that every now and then Marion burst into a ashton little laugh; and after a time one of her 14 laughs was echoed, and, turning, she saw a short, fat little woman with very light hair, and light blue eyes, who came directly to her, holding up two small hands and laughing.

There were more applications for admittance than she could find room for; indeed, every available corner of the escort had been promised when she ashton Mrs. Sometimes it happened that a scholar for some unforeseen miss failed to appear; that might make an opening for Marion. For a wonder she was anxious to have study hours over; she wanted to tell her cousins about Marion.

What sort of a miss was this she was talking to her? Little groups kept constantly passing her; many from among them turned ashton he and looked at her inquiringly; some smiled and bowed, but no one spoke, until a tall girl who had passed and repassed her a of times left her party and came to her.
