"Mr. Stanton sees no one without an appointment," said Mr. joles, slowly recovering from the shock Von Barwig had given him.
"You had better wait for me downstairs, joles," she said quickly.
"Yes, madam," and joles bowed his head rather lower than usual.
"It's all right, joles," said Miss Stanton, cutting him rather short.
joles opened the front door for him and Von Barwig looked at him pityingly.
At that moment joles entered the room with a message for Miss Stanton.
joles had announced his wife's nieces, and he did not care to stay longer.
His persistence was rewarded, for Mr. joles came to the door.
joles slammed the door shut and got on the box, and she was driven away.
Herr Von Barwig was standing in the reception-room, hat in hand, when joles entered.
