I'll tell you, said the woman, "but you mustn't tell," she added, with a look of cunning. "I've found it all out. It's a place where they send crazy people." Do you know of a good one? The woman who has nursed my child back from death is worthy of all honor in my household. I should adore it, said Allegra, beaming at him. "The sea is my passion鈥攁nd I think it is my sister's passion too. We are a kind of amphibious creatures, living more on water than on land. We venture as far as we dare in a row-boat鈥攂ut oh, that is such a little way."
