     "Because you are going to tell up stairs. Is that it?"

     "No," said I, "that's not it."

     "Because I'll never cry for you again," said I. Which was, I suppose, as false a declaration as ever was made; for I was inwardly crying for her then, and I know what I know of the pain she cost me afterwards.

     "Whom have we here?" asked the gentleman, stopping and looking at me.

     "A boy," said Estella.
