              Excerpthen for listening to her aunt's conversation about Ludovic, and Tetchen thought it unjust that she should be interrogated on the subject after being so treated. I told you, miss, I didn't hear anything;--only just the name. Very well, Tetchen; that will do; only I hope you... won't say such things of aunt Charlotte anywhere else. What harm have I said, Linda? surely to say of a widow that she's to be married to an honest man is not to say harm. But it is not true, Tetchen; and you should not say it. Then Tetchen departed quite unconvinced, and Linda began to reflect how far her life would be changed for the better or for the worse, if Tetchen's tidings should ever be made true. But, as has been said before, Tetchen's tidings were never to be made true.But Madame Staubach did not resent the offer made to her. When Peter Steinmarc told her that she was a lone woman, left without guidance or protection, she allowed the fact, admitting that guidance would be good for her.
