After that it was easy to un- earth tbe records of a child's birth and of a mother's death, all in New York city. Droom can tell the names of Jane's parents, substan- tiating the names I have just given to you. He did know that they had been marrieu nearly two years prior to the birth of the.child. It was a clandestine marriage. 1 went straight to tbe father of tbe foundling. He was then but little more than twen- ty-one years of age. a wild, ruthless, overbearing, heartless scoundrel, wlvi bad more money hut a inu'-h conscience than 1 lu- a great and. "I bHii-tv t'eman. for --f 1 had ir: before me Egad, uiy son, 1 am rather proud of mat hour with him. "It seeins.that this young scion of a wealthy house had lost bis insecure heart to the daughter of a real aristo- crat 1 real because her father was a pure Knickerbocker of the old schooL He was naturally as poor as poverty itself. With, his- beautiful daughter he was living in lower New York, barely may say, on the meager income that found its way to him through the upstairs lodgers in the old home. Here lived Jane's moth- er, cherishing, the traditions of her blood, while. her father, sick and fee- ble, brooded over the days when be was a king in Babylon. The band- some, wayward lover came into her life when she was nineteen. They were, married secretly in the city of Boston. "The young husband Imposed silence until after he had atttained his ma- jority. There was a vast fortune at stake. In plain words, his father had forbidden the marriage. He had se- lected another one to be the wife of his son. Jane was born in "the second year of their wedded life. It was of course important that the factMshould be kept secret I am in- closing a slip of paper containing the names of the minister, the doctor, the afterward attended her, together the record of death. It is more, convenient to handle than this bulky letter, which I trust you vriJI destroy. You will also find the name the hospital in which Jane was born and where her mother died ten lays later. I in. this con- nection that, not one of the persons mentioned knew the true name of the young were they sure of the fact that she was a wife. Her gravestone In the old cemetery bears the name of the-maiden, not the wife. Her father never knew the truth. "What I did nf the premises need not be. told. That is a part of my past I learned how the cowardly young father, glad to be out of the affair so easily, hired tbe nurse to leave the baby on. the doorstep. 'Then I weat to the banker whose son he was. I had absolute proof of the mar- riage. He paid me well to keep the "true story from reaching the public. The son was whisked abroad, and he afterward married the girl of bis fa- ther's choice. I do not believe that he has ever given a thought to tbe where- abouts or welfare of bis child. It was her herita-gVof caste! 'If Jane cares to claim her rights as this man's lawful daughter, proof is ample and undeniable. I fancy, how- ever, she Twill find greater joy as the daughter of David Cable. Her own father has less of a. heart than yours, for, after all. my son, I love you be- cause you arc mine.
