At the Back of the North Wind
" Right, old lady," returned his father; "only 1 don't believe there are more than two pair of carriage-horses in the whole blessed place."
" Well, people can get to heaven without carriages— or coachmen either, husband. Not that I should like
to go without my coachman, you know. But about the boy?" "What boy?" "That boy, there, staring at you with his goggle-eyes."
" Have I got goggle-eyes, mo­ther?" asked Dia­mond, a little dis­mayed.
" Not too gog­gle," said his mother, who was quite proud of her boy's eyes, only did not want to make him vain. " Not too goggle; only you need not stare so."
"Well, what about him?" said his father. "I told you I had got a letter." "Yes, from your sister; not from Diamond." "La, husband! you've got out of bed the wrong leg first this morning, I do believe."
