I met Rösi Girtanner almost every day on my way home to dinner. She was a girl of seventeen, strongly built yet supple. Her narrow face with its dark, flawless complextion radiated the same quiet, spiritual beauty still possessed by her mother and which her grandmother and great-grandmother had possessed before her.
