So Mother has been to Mrs. Wilson. They have talked it over. What does it profit them or us? What can anybody do now?
There is forever a question to decide. If other boys know that he still come around they will steer clear. To have others I must not have him, ever! Which? Be he has not asked to come.
I hold nothing against him. If he no longer loves me he is right in telling me so. If he is trying to give me other "opportunities" - so much the finer gentleman is he - and if it is the result of unfortunate circumstances he is not to blame. I shall never trust myself to love again. I shall always be afraid to.
