And in after times when i knew How devoted a daughter and Sis Ter she had proved i thought the epithet of Good Well bestowed. It has often been affirmed that fiction stops Short of reality and Dame Bertha s reminiscences fully corroborated this truth her words nearly As i can remember ran thus she knit Ting All the while my Mother was on orphan and Young when she became Nursery governess in a Noble Man s family. The third son returned from sea wild and thoughtless youth but unfortunately Loo handsome and insinuating for my Mother to withstand the persuasions he used to in Duce her to become his wife. They were mar ried and my father was an outcast from his family in consequence. Almost the first thing i can remember is my fair Young Mother in her widow s weeds working with her Needle and weeping As she worked. We lived in a Village a few Miles from hence and lodged at a Bakers my Mother supporting Hert Elf and child by teaching any pupils she could get. Sorrow had father s own sister. All this 1 listened to and endeavoured to realize bul when i heard there say forget my Sweet gentle Mother and never so much As name her the Wrath and fierce passion of that impotent passion As it even the grave Stern lady we Jion was to Call aunt.

To to my amazement i was Clad in a deep mourning Wrath i was not told. Once i feared they were deceiving me and that my Mother was no More but if this were the Case the lady Beatrice said that she was it would have been better for her had she the new Home to which 1 Yas taken stood in la lives but i was not asked for. Lady Beatrice was weary and disgusted with me de that she had already done More than her duty that i was i Reclaimable and for the future dead to them All. The affairs of the Mill were managed Iby an Active Man whose integrity could be depended on and when Simon was old enough he under took the business for himself. Isnac Eva Dale had left a will which there was none to dispute bequeathing All his wealth unconditionally to my to her and her son. That dear Parent was spared to us five and Twenty Vears. I never saw her smile but i know she Felt perfect peace and when her sad Story was made known to me and Simon also when he betaine of age to receive it i think if possible her children s sympathizing love was redoubled and though we All three continued to live a secluded life yet i never found any outward testimonies of respect withheld from tic da3ie Bertha.

On my arrival at the Hall i was immediately seized by about four dozen smart Fellows and taken upon the roof of the building. Here i Wab Tongue tied and compelled to answer about a Hundred questions All having a direct bearing on the science of 11 what a queer exclaimed mrs. How i answered the questions must Ever remain i suppose i mystery to to not , i did answer every one although i did not know it till to night there s a great Bear and a dipper and a chair a four horse team and i Don t know what else in the sky.

At length we emerged upon a shrubby Plain and finally came in sight of this oldest City of the United states St. Augustine Florida seated among its Trees on a Sandy swell of land it has stood for nearly three Hundred years. I was struck with its ancient and homely aspect even at a distance and could not help likening it to pictures which i had seen of dutch towns though it wanted a Windmi or two to make the resemblance perfect. We drove into a Green Square in the midst of which was a Monument erected to commemorate the Spanish Constitution of 1812, and thence through the narrow streets of the City to our hotel. Have called the streets narrow. In few places Are they wide enough to allow two car ridges to piss abreast. I was told they were not originally intended for carriages and that in the Lime when the town belonged to Spain Many of Tiem were floored with an artificial Stone composed of shells and mortar which in tins climate takes and keeps the hardness of Rock and that no other vehicle than a hand Harrow was allowed to pass Over them. In borne places you see remains of this ancient pavement but for the most part it has been ground into dust under the Weels of the Carta and carriages introduced by the new inhabitants. The old houses built of a Stone which is seemingly a pure concretion of Small shells overhang the streets with their wooden Balco Nies and the gardens Between the houses Are fenced on the Side of the Street with High Walla of Stone. Peeping Over these Walls you see branches of the pomegranate and of the Orange tree now flagrant with Flowers and rising yet higher the learning boughs of the Fig with Ita Broad and luxuriant leaves. Occasionally you of Stone with same material which once belonged to stately dwellings.

There was confusion and dismay stifled groans and dreadful exclamations in the midst of the confusion i was hurried away by a do Mes tic not comprehending How a letter could have caused All this sudden bewilderment. Our worthy pastor Lead me to the parsonage and his amiable wife made me understand that some great affliction had befallen my Mother but what it was she did not explain. To my Earnest entreaties she replied that by and Bye i perhaps be told the sad circumstances but i he Patin Tiland quiet now for my Mother was too ill me. A stranger arrived and i went on a Long journey with her weeping because i had not seen my Mother in her trouble. I waa taken to a strange Large did not know then that it was an inn never having seen such a place and brought to a bedside where a Pale Haggard looking Man Lay stretched on a Couch. He based wildly upon me and tried to clasp me ill his hands but i shrank away calling for my dear Mamma. Then i saw the sick Man writhe and i heard sobs of agony and a grand Stern lady whom i had not noticed before took my hand and led me away. Next Day 1 was told that the gentleman whom i had seen in the bed had breathed his last and that i was to depart immediately with the grind lady to a new Horae for that Rny Mother was a disgraced person and i must never men lion her name again.
