Ja, no doubt you did,” he replied; then, becoming less irritable as he cooled off, “if you promise not to run away this afternoon, perhaps I will sneak you into the Hall this evening. ” he ended sharply. I think I had taken the Doctor's measure by now; I thought him something of a child, so answered calmly that I supposed he would take care to avoid any unpleasant consequences to himself, and as for myself I was prepared to take the risk.
