As there seemed no prospect of being able to pay his debts his wife and their two little children came to live there with him. The elder child was a boy of three the younger a little girl of two years old and not long afterwards another little girl was born. The three children played in the courtyard and on the whole were happy for they were too young to remember a happier state of things. But the youngest child who had never been outside the prison walls was a thoughtful little creature and wondered what the outside world could be like. Her great friend the turnkey who was also her godfather became very fond of her and as soon as she could walk and talk he brought a little arm-chair and stood it by his fire at the lodge and coaxed her with cheap toys to come and sit with him. In return the child loved him dearly and would often bring her doll to dress and undress as she sat in the little arm-chair. She was still a very tiny creature when she began to understand that everyone did not live locked up inside high walls with spikes at the top and though she and the rest of the family might pass through the door that the great key opened her father could not and she would look at him with a wondering pity in her tender little heart.
