Mr. Spoker was excessively vexed. Hu read and re read iho documents, to con- vince himself if In- could, that they woro insufficient proofd of hor ulaims. After all. Captain Giiibiiru, said iio it is plain Mr. Chiimwny to have it.

Thuru is n great dual, indeed, said 'hnrles. Shall you over spand it do you hink I suppose, said Phillif. tho cnMle to you. Phillis wunt on dusting; but tho tonrs spurted out of her eyes, and (die hung down her head.
