Klara was greatly delighted by the news, and told Heidi that evening so much about her grandmamma that Heidi, too, began to talk about the " grandmamma " ; and Fraulein Rottenmeier looked at her disapprovingly,-but the child did not think this anything strange, as she felt perpetually under her disapproval. When she started later to go to her room, Fraulein Rottenmeier called her first into hers, and explained then and there that she must never use the name "grandmamma," but must address her as "gnadige Frau." 1
" Do you understand this ? " asked the lady as Heidi looked at her somewhat doubtfully; but she gave her such a forbidding look in return that Heidi asked for no more explanation, although she did not understand the title.
1 Gracious lady.
