But even this alarming suggestion did not deter Mrs. Thimbleby from haunting the "Ranters'" meeting-room, and leaving message after message with Nick Green to be sure and tell Mr. Powell to come up to her house, the very minute he arrived. Nick Green knew no more than the widow the day and hour of the preacher's arrival.

They had one sentiment in common鈥攏amely, love for Algernon. But this sentiment did not tend to unite them. Indeed鈥攑utting the rivalry of lovers out of the question, of course鈥攊t would be a mistake to conclude that because A and B both love C, therefore A and B must love each other. Mrs. Errington thought that Castalia worried Algernon by complaints.
