"I can't rampage if I want to for a time, at least; and I'll tell you 

why. I sprained my ankle when I tumbled off of Barkis, and it gets 

worse and worse; though I've done all I know to cure it and hide it, 

so it shouldn't trouble anyone," whispered Rose, knitting her brows 

with pain, as she prepared to descend, wishing her uncle would 

take her instead of her bundles. 

 

How he did it, she never knew; but Mac had her up the steps and 

on the parlour sofa before she could put her foot to the ground. 

 

"There you are right side up with care; and mind, now, if your 

ankle bothers you, and you are laid up with it, I am to be your 

footman. It's only fair, you know; for I don't forget how good you 

have been to me." And Mac went to call Phebe, so full of gratitude 

and good-will that his very goggles shone.
