1 I am going to New York on business very soon.

6 Madame Antoine busied herself in the large front room preparing dinner.
7 "Well, send him about his business when he bores you, Edna," instructed her husband as he prepared to leave.
8 He was returning to the city to his business, and they would not see him again at the Island till the coming Saturday.
9 "'Cite can do it as well as I; it is really her business," she explained to Edna, who apologized for interrupting her.
10 I suppose there's no use telling you I've been very busy, or that I've been sick, or that I've been to see you and not found you at home.
11 "Of course not; he knows you are with me," Robert replied, as he busied himself among sundry pans and covered dishes which had been left standing on the hearth.

14 She answered in as light and bantering a spirit as she fancied it deserved, and said she would be glad to have him look in upon her at work whenever he felt the inclination and his business gave him the opportunity.
15 But remembering Edna's whimsical turn of mind of late, and foreseeing that she had immediately acted upon her impetuous determination, he grasped the situation with his usual promptness and handled it with his well-known business tact and cleverness.
