"It is rare to find a woman who places her personal happiness above her fears for the future. You refused Mr. Bigg-Wither, refused his offer of a home, a family, and the comfortable means they assured, to retain your independence, despite the counsel of all who wished you well and threw their weight behind the match. What strength!"
"Did you know Mr. Bigg-Wither, you would think me less noble," I said. "There cannot be two men so likely to meet with refusal in the entire country."
