EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
Light at Last
"Does Mrs. Archer live here?" the man asked, in a voice scarcely audible. "Miss Archer lives here, sir." "It is late, I know," the man said after a long pause; "but I have walked out from the city, and as I came this way, and saw a light in the window, I ventured to stop, as I had an errand to do."
The man had the odor of the sea about him, and Mary was not afraid. There was something to her sacred in those habiliments—and she bade him come in.
He followed her into the sitting-room, but did not sit down in the proffered seat, nor did he remove his hat. It was a chill autumnal night, and he wore his pea-jacket buttoned close up.
"You said you had an errand, sir?" Mary at length ventured. "Yes, yes," said the man, with a start. He had been looking at her from the shadow of his hat-rim. "Yes—I have an errand. It was given to me years ago. At one time—for a long time—I thought I should never bring it; but fate has been kinder than I dared to hope. You know—none should know better—that there are mortal dangers on the deep. I was wrecked as others had been before and have been since.
I was cast, alone on a raft, upon an island, where savages were for long years my only companions. I taught them many useful things, and they were kind to me. Of gold and precious stones I gathered a great store, useless there, but to me of value should I ever again find my native land. The time came at length, after weary years,and my feet once more tread the soil of my own country. And, lady, I have come to fulfill a trust. I knew who you were before I came here. They told me in the city of your situation."
The man unbuttoned his pea-jacket and drew something out from his bosom, and slipped something from around his neck. The former was a locket, scarred and worn and blackened, and the latter was a soiled and frayed and knotted remnant of dingy ribbon.
