This is a excellent story. Twin brothers, not truly illegitimate but lost in the maze of the life of their father's second marriage. Deceit of a banker. . . trials and tribulations in the era. Very well spun characters and plot line including English entailments surrounding inheritances. Old old stories - but as new as today at the same time. Gentle as he was, and courteous, and perfectly frank with her, Elma, nevertheless, felt really half inclined to be angry at this queer a vowal. That is to say, at least, she knew it was her bounden duty, as an English lady, to seem so; and she seemed so accordingly with most Britannic severity.
