Captain Traverse knew of the old fisherman's death through the newspapers that found him in his foreign ports- not through Miss Frarnie's letters, for she knew almost nothing of the existence or non- existence of such low people; and therefore, conjecture as he needs must concerning Louie's means of livelihood now, there was no intelligence to relieve any anxiety he might have felt, or to inform him of the sale of the cottage to pay the debt of the mortgage under which it was bought, or of the support that Louie earned in helping her aunt watch with the sick and lay out the dead: he could only be pricked with knowledge of the fact that he had no right to his anxiety, or to the mention of her name even in his prayers- if he said them.- "Not Pretty, But Precious", John Hay, et al..
