"But Mrs. Freeman wants you to go to bed early to-night."
"I certainly want you, Bridget. I am not in the habit of sending for my pupils if I don't wish to speak to them."
"I did not specially mention the flowers, my dear. There are many rules in full force at Mulberry Court, and the pupils are expected to obey them all.""Do, my love, and call to me if you do.

These remarks usually turned the tables against Janet May, but they also had another effect. She began to be sparing of her sharp, unkind words in Bridget's hearing. This, however, did not prevent her hating the new girl with the most cordial hatred she had ever yet bestowed upon anyone.
"I never knew before that I had an enemy," said Janet, in her guarded voice.
