But one morning her sister, her little sister Marguerite, then only twelve years old, threw herself into Suzanne's arms, sobbing: "Sister, I don't want you to be unhappy. I don't want you to mourn all your life. I'll never leave you?never, never, never! I shall never marry, either. I'll stay with you always?always!" Suzanne kissed her,...
