Being a bachelor, the probable disposition of his property became a question of considerable interest among his relations. The family of Mr. Mason, the merchant introduced in the last chapter, included but two children, a son and a daughter Grace was the only daughter of a sister, recently deceased, who had been for many years a widow.

From some indications of preference which he had bestowed upon Henrietta in her childhood, it was generally believed that she would prove to be the fortunate one. Henrietta had been educated to be a lady. Her delicate fingers were never soiled by rude collision with pots and kettles, and she had been taught to believe that it was delicate sensibility to be afraid of a spider or a bull frog.
