Much less did she calculate that the sacred Bond would be unto her As the Millstone Laid on love s lightest dreams. This incident might not _ however been told except to slow that in proportion As drink dried up the heart of the Hus a More than equal ratio were the tears of the wife left to dry up themselves. It was at no Distant period from perhaps Ere thrice the marriage Moon had waxed and wept again and in fwd not be addled that the cause of her weeping was some Peculiar aggravation attendant on one of those indulgences which Hayes just been alluded to and in the tear for which the Lover bad anticipated so much de Light. Again indeed he kissed his wife but verily he tear seemed no Gem in his but this was while he yet tarried by wicket so if in after years the hopeless wife in the fullness other heart i so Silil Buist into tears the drink stricken husband now embraced her not neither Reck the nature or number of her tears.
