Unlikely to arrive before Christmas
From "Crapy Cornelia": Indeed the supreme oddity was that the manner of her reply to his request for leave to call should have absolutely charmed his attention. She didn't look at him; she only, from under her frumpy, crapy, curiously exotic hat, and with her good little near-sighted insinuating glare, expressed to Mrs. Worthingham, while she answered him, wonderful arch things, the overdone things of a shy woman. "Yes, you may call -- but only when this dear lovely lady has done with you!" The moment after which she had gone. Also includes "The Velvet Glove," "Mora Montravers," "A Round of Visits," and "The Bench of Desolation."
