ESTHER 

CHAPTER I. 

THE LAST DAY AT REDMAYNE HOUSE. 

What trifles vex one! 

I was always sorry that my name was Esther; not that I found fault
with the name itself, but it was too grave, too full of meaning for
such an insignificant person.  Some one who was learned in such
matters--I think it was Allan--told me once that it meant a star, or
good fortune. 

It may be so, but the real meaning lay for me in the marginal note
of my Bible: Esther, fair of form and good in countenance, that
Hadassah, who was brought to the palace of Shushan, the beautiful
Jewish queen who loved and succored her suffering people; truly a
bright particular star among them.
