in consequence of the missive, Paper filigree basket, penned by Barbara
"I am glad," said Lady Middleton to Lucy, "you are not going to finish poor little Annamaria's basket this evening; for I am sure it must hurt your eyes to work fillagree by candlelight. And we will make the dear little love some amends for her disappointment to-morrow, and then I hope she will not much mind it."
Lady Middleton is much too well-bred to accuse Lucy of forgetting her promise to the little girl, and yet the hint is strong enough that Lucy immediately gets to work.
