I went to Meg Van Dam, who had long urged me to pay her a visit.
Perhaps I shouldn't have let her talk so about Meg, but, after all, she told me nothing new.
I dashed into my room but Meg's staccato reached me even there.
Meg paced the floor a minute, then slapped herself into a chair.
Hitherto Meg's experience had been that it was a thing to be slurred over, like a deformity.
Meg, at sixteen, had received so little from life that her expectations were of the humblest.
At the end of the first year Meg ceased to receive any lessons.
In vain did Meg plead, almost with tears, that he would do nothing of the kind.
When Meg opened the envelope she found three ten-pound notes.
Later in the evening she received a telegram from Jan announcing Meg's whereabouts.
