One afternoon Mr. Yates was talking to one of the girls in the garden after lunch. “You anh your sister were ill when my wife and I were here last year, weren’t you?” he said to her.
-“Yes we were,” answered the girl ,”We were very ill.”
The old man said nothing for a minute, because he was thinking . Then at last he said : “Oh,yes! I remember now !One of you died. Which one of you was it, you or your sister!”
The girl answered, “It was me.”
-“Oh !I’m very sorry to hear it,”said the old man.
