Now, where was Matthew Cuthbert going and why was he going there? Had it been any other man in Avonlea, Mrs.
Rachel, deftly putting this and that together, might have given a pretty good guess as to both questions. But Matthew so rarely went from home that it must be something pressing and unusual which was taking him; he was the shyest man alive and hated to have to go among strangers or to any place where he might have to talk. Matthew, dressed up with a white collar and driving in a buggy, was something that didn't happen often.
Rachel, ponder as she might, could make nothing of it and her afternoon's enjoyment was spoiled. Yet something must have happened since last night to start him off. I'm clean puzzled, that's what, and I won't know a minute's peace of mind or conscience until I know what has taken Matthew Cuthbert out of Avonlea today.
Rachel set out; she had not far to go; the big, rambling, orchard-embowered house where the Cuthberts lived was a scant quarter of a mile up the road from Lynde's Hollow.
To be sure, the long lane made it a good deal further. Rachel was almost forced to suppose it. Rachel felt that she had received a severe mental jolt.
She thought in exclamation points. A boy!
Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of all people adopting a boy! From an orphan asylum! Well, the world was certainly turning upside down!
She would be surprised at nothing after this! This had been done without her advice being asked, and must perforce be disapproved. Alexander Spencer was up here one day before Christmas and she said she was going to get a little girl from the asylum over in Hopeton in the spring. Her cousin lives there and Mrs. Spencer has visited here and knows all about it.
So Matthew and I have talked it over off and on ever since. His heart troubles him a good deal. At first Matthew suggested getting a Home boy. Spencer to pick us out one when she went over to get her little girl. We decided that would be the best age—old enough to be of some use in doing chores right off and young enough to be trained up proper.
We mean to give him a good home and schooling.
We had a telegram from Mrs. Alexander Spencer today—the mail-man brought it from the station—saying they were coming on the five-thirty train tonight. So Matthew went to Bright River to meet him.
Spencer will drop him off there. Of course she goes on to White Sands station herself.
Rachel prided herself on always speaking her mind; she proceeded to speak it now, having adjusted her mental attitude to this amazing piece of news. Why, it was only last week I read in the paper how a man and his wife up west of the Island took a boy out of an orphan asylum and he set fire to the house at night—set it ON PURPOSE, Marilla—and nearly burnt them to a crisp in their beds.
She knitted steadily on. But Matthew was terrible set on it. I could see that, so I gave in.
