EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY


ANASTASIA’S GHOST
By H.E. Smith

How well I remember that dismal November night. Some vague presentiment of evil weighed upon my heart, as I sat alone in the twilight. There was nothing apparently to make me gloomy. On the contrary, I ought to have been more than usually cheerful; had I not received a delicious promise from Katie Nelson that very afternoon?
It seemed to be odd, to be sure, that a gray-haired widower like myself was to marry this girl of eighteen. Her mother had been a housekeeper in our family, but died soon after Katie’s birth. It happened that she was adopted by us, as we had not children of our own. My wife treated her kindly, but without much warmth of feeling. Anastasia was of such a peculiar disposition that I actually believed she was jealous of this infant.
Poor Anastasia! She warned me solemnly on her death-bed never to marry again, and threatened to rise from her grave in case of such an event. Katie was in her tenth year when my wife died. I sent her away to a boarding school; and, as business called me abroad, did not see her again until my return, eight years afterwards. I was somewhat bewildered to find a lovely woman, instead of the little girl I had left in short dresses. Of course you can guess the sequel. I fell in love with this charming adopted daughter. There was something in the frank tenderness of her manner that completely won my heart.
It was evident that she was deeply attached to me. I could not help seeing how much higher she valued my society than that of my nephew, Charles Raymond, who had accompanied me from abroad. She never addressed him except in monosyllables and would flush all over with embarrassment if he but entered the room. With me, she was always self-possessed, and so talkative and sociable that I could not help pitying Charlie. He was really quite good-looking, and I used to wonder sometimes at her antipathy. Poor fellow; how I dreaded to tell him of my approaching happiness. It would be a great blow to his hopes, for he had expected to inherit my fortune.
