The young man, who was dining alone with his mother and sister, glanced up in surprise and saw Mrs. Archer's gaze demurely bent on her plate. Mrs. Archer did not regard her seclusion from the world as a reason for being forgotten by it; and Newland guessed that she was slightly annoyed that he should be suprised by Madame Olenska's visit.
``She had on a black velvet polonaise with jet buttons, and a tiny green monkey muff; I never saw her so stylishly dressed,'' Janey continued. ``She came alone, early on Sunday afternoon; luckily the fire was lit in the drawing-room. She had one of those new card-cases. She said she wanted to know us because you'd been so good to her.''
Newland laughed. ``Madame Olenska always takes that tone about her friends. She's very happy at being among her own people again.''
``Yes, so she told us,'' said Mrs. Archer. ``I must say she seems thankful to be here.''
``I hope you liked her, mother.''
