With greatest affection, 

 

THAYER DARCY. 

 

 

Within a week after the receipt of this letter their little household 

fell precipitously to pieces. The immediate cause was the serious and 

probably chronic illness of Tom's mother. So they stored the furniture, 

gave instructions to sublet and shook hands gloomily in the Pennsylvania 

Station. Amory and Tom seemed always to be saying good-by. 

 

Feeling very much alone, Amory yielded to an impulse and set off 

southward, intending to join Monsignor in Washington. They missed 

connections by two hours, and, deciding to spend a few days with an 

ancient, remembered uncle, Amory journeyed up through the luxuriant 

fields of Maryland into Ramilly County. But instead of two days his stay 

lasted from mid-August nearly through September, for in Maryland he met 

Eleanor.
