CAPTAIN DESMOND'S DAUGHTER. CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 29 March 1883

CAPTAIN DESMOND'S DAUGHTER. (From Clamber's Journal.) CIIAPTER X. "'I need not relate to you in detail all'that followed. My poor friend died in the course of the night, without H:aving recovered consciousness for a moment. Next day, Dr. Bond gave the necessary certificate, made out in the name of Marmaduko Desmond; and my wife ordered her widow's weeds. We were the only people in the secret except Elspeth Durham, and she was a woman from whom my wife professed to have no secrets, The funeral took place in due course, as you know, and to me the cruelest part of the affair was the necessity that existed for deceiving you ; but it was a necessity. As I have alreadly said, I was stupefied by my wife's assertion to Dr. Bond that Freshfield was her husband, and that I was Freshfield ; and no sooner were we alone, thlan I demanded to know her reasons for so strange a proceeding. " The reasons are not far to seek," she said. "You are ruined, and nothing but beggary stares you in the face. ...

I look into your great brown eyes, Where love and loyal homage shine, And wonder where the difference lies Between your soul and mine I For all of good that I have found Within myself or human kind, Boath royally informed and crowned Your gentle heart and mine, I scan the whole broad earth around For that one heart which, real and true, Bears friendship without and or bound, And find the prize in you. I trust you as I trust the stares ; Nor cruel loss, nor scoff of pride, Nor beggary, nor dungeon-bars, Can move you from my side ! As patient under injury As any Christian saint of old, As gentle as a hunb with me, But with your brothers bold ; More playful than a frolic boy, Moro watchful than a sentinel, By day and night your constant joy To guard and please me well, I clasp your head upon my brenst The while ...
