" * He sent them word I had not gone
(We know it to be true):
If she should push the matter on,
What would become of you?
* My notion was that you had been
(Before she had this fit)
An obstacle that came between
Him, and ourselves, and it.
Don't let him know she liked them best,
For this must ever be
A secret, kept from all the rest,
Between yourself and me.'
