DISTANT FRIENDS HEARD FROM                 289
" There they are ! There they are ! " screamed Heidi, jumping up in the air with delight. They really were coming. They came nearer and nearer and at last they were there. The porter put the chair down on the ground. Heidi ran to it and the two children greeted
each other with immense delight. Then the grand­mamma arrived and dismounted from the horse. Heidi ran to her and was embraced with great tenderness. Then the grandmamma turned toward the Aim-Uncle, who had come to welcome her. There was no formality in their greeting, for she knew him and he knew her as well as if they had been acquainted for a long time.
