Book Description

CHAPTER I. Was it Substitution pray be seated, madam. The doctor offered his visitor a chair. Then he closed the door with perhaps a more marked manner than one generally displays in this simple operation. I am happy to inform you, he began, that the arangements-the arrangements, he repeated with meaning, are now completed. The lady was quite young-not more than twentytwo or so-a handsome woman, a woman of distinction. Her face was full of sadness her eyes were full of trouble her lips trembled her fingers nervously clutched the arms of the chair. When the doctor mentioned the arrangements, her cheek flushed and then paled. In a word, she betrayed every external sign of terror, sorrow, and anxiety. And when can I leave this place This day as soon as you please. The woman nade no objections None. You can have the child. I have told you my reasons for wishing to adopt this child -he had never asked her reasons, yet at every interview she repeated them my own boy is dead. He is dead. There was a world of trouble in the repetition of the word. The doctor bowed coldly. Your reasons, madam, he said, are sufficient for yourself. I have followed your instructions without asking for your reasons. That is to say, I have found the kind of child you want light hair and blue eyes, apparently sound and healthy at all events the child of a sound and healthy mother. As for your reasons, I do not inquire. I thought you might like- They are nothing to do with me. My business has been to find a child, and to arrange for your adoption of it. I have therefore, as I told you, arranged with a poor woman who is willing to part with her child. 0n my conditions Absolutely. That is-she will never see the child again she will not ask who takes the child, or where it is taken, or in what position of life it will be brought up. She accepts your assurance that the child will be cared for, and treated kindly. Poor creature She fully consents. You will give her fifty pounds, and that single payment will terminate the whole business. Terminate the whole business the wole business Oh, it will begin There are many reasons for adoption, the doctor continued, returning to the point with which he has no concern. I have read in books of substituting a child-introducing a child-for the sake of keeping a title, or an estate, or a family. The lady answered as if she had not heard this remark. The mother consents to sell her child Poor creature She accepts our conditions..............
