The present chapter is the continuation of a tale subsidiary to that of the main plot. Josh Horrotian, a trooper in the Lancers, had been secretly married to Nelly, his mother's dairy maid. The mother, Sarah Harrotian, a widow, had extracted from them a confession that they were married, but as they were unable to produce the “marriage lines” or certificate, which Josh had mislaid, she insisted on them leaving her house, and we now find them travelling together to Josh’s garrison town, Thompson Jowell, a cousin of Sarah Harrotian, is a swindling army contractor, and his son, Monty, holds a commission in the army.By Bp RICHARD DEHAN31 min
