pronounced an unmistakable yes.
A!! the arrangements being made,
the trio, mother, son and rustic

From the veiy first, there was a
ll.ivor of love in the atmosphere.

Cupid was weaving. They became
tbno-t inseparable, traveling ac
qu.tuitanc looked upon them as
betr,. tiled, aid finally the son
b ankly told his mother that he had
ai.n'e up his mind to get married.
The news came like a thunder
clap out of a clear skj, and the
storm that fo'do en shook up the
'.d aristocrat to such a degree that
-he tnreatc rtcd to disinherit him.
Nothing remained but to return
home as quickly as possible and

In her griet, the mother prayed
forgiveness for the wrong she had

her bosom as an adopted daughter.
