"You're right, I don't. You're as thick-headed as all the rest of them."
"May I take her in?" he said, nodding toward the open door.
[Pg 18]Ellton messed with them regularly, but he was not to go out, because he was acting adjutant. To his intense disgust and considerable mortification鈥攆or he was young and very enthusiastic and burdened with ideals鈥攈e was obliged to appear spick and span in irreproachable undress, beside his superiors in their campaign clothes.
"Shall you go with them?" asked Cairness."My name, sir, is Foster."
The horses were tied to a ground line, to avoid the embarrassment of a loose herd, in the event of an engagement. Pickets were sent out to give warning at the approach of Indians.
