MAN AND WIFE

by Wilkie Collins

PROLOGUE.--THE IRISH MARRIAGE.



Part the First.



THE VILLA AT HAMPSTEAD.

I.

girls were crying bitterly in the cabin of an East Indian
passenger ship, bound outward, from Gravesend to Bombay.

childhood upward, been close and dear friends at the same school.
They were now parting for the first time--and parting, it might
be, for life.
