Overview

Excerpt from The Gates Ajar

One week; only one week to-day, this twenty-first of February.

I have been sitting here in the dark and thinking about it, till it seems so horribly long and so horribly short; it has been such a week to live through, and it is such a small part of the weeks that must be lived through, that I could think no longer, but lighted my lamp and opened my desk to find something to do.

I was tossing my paper about, - only my own: the packages in the yellow envelopes I have not been quite brave enough to open yet, - when I came across this poor little book in which I used to keep memoranda of the weather, and my lovers, when I was a schoolgirl. I turned the leaves, smiling to see how many blank pages were left, and took up my pen, and now I am not smiling any more.

If it had not come exactly as it did, it seems to me as if I could bear it better.
