OT 38 SffijW] CHAPTER XIX. — fCoSTIXUEP.} Ralph sent for Judge Ireton, Imo- gene's father, but the fatal news had already reached him, and it had been too much for the proud old man.

Imogene was confined to the room in the third story, which was made as comfortable as might be for her use, and Ralph went about the house a gloomy, grief-stricken man. For sor- row such as his, who could offer words of comfort? Governor Fulton prepared to return home, and he insisted on taking Helen with him.
