About The Heiress, Vol. 2 of 3: A Novel (Classic Reprint) Catherine looked baf ed for a moment, and then continued It is a pity, as you say, that all her stories are not as marvellous as this, and then none could credit them.

Is that a snake? Screamed Lady Cathe rine, starting from her seat. No snake was to be discovered, and when they were again seated, there was no trace of emotion on Catherines features.
