A charming little story, full of pathos, of a country boy and girl, John Pettigrew and his cousin Tryphena.
He has been for years an invalid, owing to a fall from a hay cart, and his life is passed on the couch while Tryphena has been his constant companion and nurse.
A young lady coming to live at the Hall calls to see the chamber in which the King hid in the old manor house, and to poor John Pettigrew she shows tenderness and sympathy.
It is his first romantic love. Tryphena fails to sympathize, as she is jealous, while, he is blind to the true love of Tryphena. Miss Mervin leaves the scene, and the close of the story is prettily told in an Epilogue, by which the reader learns that, as time passed, Tryphena’s love was rewarded.
