"Andy, did you ask your father what we wanted you to do?" said Tom.
"Aye, I did" said Andy. "He says, yes--if I work hard all the week."
"Andy! How lovely!" said Jill in excitement. "I never thought he'd let you."
"Do you mean to say your father will lend you his sailing-ship to take us for a trip to Little Island?" asked Mary, hardly believing her ears. "I never thought he'd say yes."
