Excerpt from Fairy Gold
Claire! do stop that tiresome practicing and come here. Helen and I want you."
The voice was very clear and vibrating, and had a ring of command in it as it uttered these words; while the summer dusk was dying away, and the summer air came soft and sweet into the schoolroom of a convent, that, from the eminence on which it stood, overlooked a cit at its feet, and the rise and fall of Atlantic tides. It was drawing toward the close of the exercise-hour, but the two girls who stood together in school-girl fashion beside an open window, and the third, who in an adjoining music-room was diligently practicing Chopin, were not the only ones who had neglected its observance and incurred no rebuke; for was not tomorrow the end of the scholastic year, and did not relaxation of rules already reign from dormitory to class-room?
