Mrs. Carlton speculated heavily. Practically every dollar of an enormous income was invested. Her daughter, wandering about the big estate made friends with a charming neighboring girl whom Mrs. Carlton, learning of the acquaintanceship, snobbishly insulted, advising her to stay to herself. Mrs. Carlton needed another hundred thousand dollars, or thought she did, which amounted to quite the same thing with her, the wealthy John Morton was sent for and the transaction negotiated, Mrs. Carlton giving her splendid residence as security.
