ladies disappeared, but the young man came down the steps and met us in the yard, with a smile on his face. After passing the compliments of the day, I asked for a drink of water. He asked us to walk around, as we supposed, to the well, but not so. He carried us to the back door of the dining-room, where we entered. The only words spoken on the way to the dining-room?, was a remark made by the young man, that ‘You were not born in these parts?’ ‘No, a good ways from here,’ was the reply. To which he replied: ‘I thought so.’
