At last there came a beautiful sunny morning in May when consciousness returned, and the patient began to show other signs of recovery. Naturally of a strong, vigorous constitution, Mrs. Wright soon became convalescent. One evening she was lying on a couch before the fire, when she observed the pallor of Chrissy's earnest face. An offensive and defensive alliance therefore was struck up between this pair (who were in reality singularly ill assorted), and Ernest set to work to master the books on which the Bishop would examine him. Others gradually joined them till they formed a small set or church (for these are the same things), and the effect of Mr. Hawke鈥檚 sermon, instead of wearing off in a few days, as might have been expected, became more and more marked, so much so that it was necessary for Ernest鈥檚 friends to hold him back rather than urge him on, for he seemed likely to develop 鈥?as indeed he did for a time 鈥?into a religious enthusiast.

Towneley was rich himself, and was married now; Ernest would be rich soon, had bona fide intended to be married already, and would doubtless marry a lawful wife later on. Such a man was worth taking pains with, and when Towneley one day met Ernest in the street, and Ernest tried to avoid him, Towneley would not have it, but with his usual quick good nature read his thoughts, caught him, morally speaking, by the scruff of his neck, and turned him laughingly inside out, telling him he would have no such nonsense. 鈥淵es, my dear, but you must admit that they were none of them exactly the kind of young man whom Charlotte could be expected to take a fancy to.
