EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
An Old Man's Story
However, I resolved to persevere and hope for the best. Thus time rolled onward; days lengthened into weeks, and I seemed to be no nearer the object of my hopes than at first, when my father received notice from a distant firm with whom he had business relations that required his immediate presence to prevent a heavy loss. As he was now a confirmed invalid, and the inclement season of the year having arrived, he could not take the journey to attend to it himself; so I necessitated, though much against my will, to go as his agent. As the business admitted of no delay, in two hours I was ready; so, without time to say a parting word to the object of my fondest love, I stepped into a train bound for the Southern city Mobile.
I consoled myself with the thought that in a short time I would return, and then, with the first opportunity, I would press my claim, and know my fate, for this suspense was consuming torture to me.
I arrived safe at my destination, but soon learned that the affairs of the firm were in such a complicated condition that possibly some time would elapse before I could settle my father's business with it and return.
I had written to my father as to whether I was obliged to stay until the business of the firm was all settled. He wrote that by all means I must stay; nothing about Myrtella, only that she was well, and that Jasper was at home. This last was the feather that was about to break the camel's back.
But everything must come to an end. My stay finally terminated, after nearly two months' absence, and I again entered Morton Homestead. I was warmly welcomed by Jasper and Myrtella. They seemed to my jealous eyes, to be on very loving terms; but whether Jasper regarded our cousin in any dearer light brotherly affection, I could not satisfactorily then determine. I resolved, however, that I would not long be a pre to uncertainty, and, with this resolve, I sought Myrtella alone.
