Title The Broken Parasol
Description decided to wait up until Peter's return. About twelve o'clock he came, and a new light was in his eyes. "Oh, Dorothy, I believe we have found the truth at last." They sat until morning marvelling over the wondrous story. Kext evening Peter and Rasmus stayed at home with the children while Dorothy and Caroline went to the meeting.
