story seemed to be "well fixed", as Mother Atterson expressed it.
She herself need never be disturbed by the vagaries of boarders,
or troubled in her mind, either waking or sleeping, about the
gravy--save on Thanksgiving Day.
Old Lem Camp and Sister were provided for by their own exertions
and Mrs. Atterson's kindness. The Dickersons--even Pete--had
become friendly neighbors. Henry Pollock had waked up his
father, and they were running the Pollock farm on much more
modern lines than before.
And Hiram himself was looking ahead to a scheme of life that
suited him, and to a chance "to make good" on a much larger scale
than he had on the Atterson Eighty where, nevertheless, he had
made the soil pay.
