Whether much or little consideration had been directed to the result, Miss Chancellor certainlywould not have incurred this reproach. She was habited in a plain dark dress, without anyornaments, and her smooth, colourless hair was confined as carefully as that of her sister wasencouraged to stray. She had instantly seated herself, and while Mrs. Luna talked she kept her eyeson the ground, glancing even less toward Basil Ransom than toward that woman of many words.The young man was therefore free to look at her; a contemplation which showed him that she wasagitated and trying to conceal it. He wondered why she was agitated, not foreseeing that he wasdestined to discover, later, that her nature was like a skiff in a stormy sea. Even after her sister hadpassed out of the room she sat there with her eyes turned away, as if there had been a spell upon herwhich forbade her to raise them. Miss Olive Chancellor, it may be confided to the reader, to whomin the course of our history I shall be under the necessity of imparting much occult information, wassubject to fits of tragic shyness, during which she was unable to meet even her own eyes in themirror. One of these fits had suddenly seized her now, without any obvious cause, though, indeed, Mrs. Luna had made it worse by becoming instantly so personal. There was nothing in the world sopersonal as Mrs. Luna; her sister could have hated her for it if she had not forbidden herself thisemotion as directed to individuals. Basil Ransom was a young man of first-rate intelligence, butconscious of the narrow range, as yet, of his experience. He was on his guard against generalisationswhich might be hasty; but he had arrived at two or three that were of value to a gentleman latelyadmitted to the New York bar and looking out for clients. One of them was to the effect that thesimplest division it is possible to make of the human race is into the people who take things hardand the people who take them easy
