He has however a daughter a creature possessed of every accomplishment and endowed with every Grace but All whose amiable qualities Are shaded by one insupportable Pride. As an example of the Way in which this feeling has led her to treat others i will own that i my self paid my addresses to her and was approved of by her father As one by birth and circumstances much Superior. But what was the answer which the insolent girl herself gave to my suit do you think sir that a Young woman like me was born for nothing than to be the wife of an engraver i her great charms and her Pride have been equally Felt by us continued the speaker and we hold that she has cast a slur both on i us and our profession. We therefore have j resolved to show this disdainful girl that she has j not indeed been born to the Honor of being the i wife of an engraver. Now will you address ing me venture to become the husband of a charming woman who to attain perfection wants Only to have her Pride mortified and her vanity answered i spurred on by the excite ment of the moment i comprehend what you would have me do and i will fulfil it in such a manner that you shall have no reason to Blush for your the three months that followed this strange scene where wholly occupied with preparations for the part i was to perform. Preserving the strictest possible secrecy my confederates did their Best to transform me from a Plain Bellows mender into a Fine gentleman. Bathing hair dresses brought my person to a fitting de Gree of refinement while every Day one or other of the engravers devoted himself to the task of teaching me music drawing and accomplish ments and nature had furnished me with a Dis position to study with a memory so retentive that my friends were astonished at the Progress of their disciple. Thoughtless of All else i Felt the deepest Delight in acquiring these new rudiments of education. But the time came when i was to made sensible for the first time of the True nature of the task i had entered the confederates at length thought me perfect and in the character of the Rich Marquis of Rou Peron proprietor of Large estates in Dau Pony i was installed in the fins i hotel in Lyons. It was under this title that i presented myself to the picture dealer in St. Dominic Street. I made a few purchases from him and seemed anxious to Purchase More. After a Little Intercourse of tins kind he sent Melvord one morning that he had just received if Superb collection of engravings from Rome and begged to Call and see him i did so and was Recei cd not by him but by auroras this was Tho first sight i had l got of that Lovely girl and for the first time in my Ihfe my Young and palpitating heart Felt the Power of Beauty.

At length Aurora s fam. I ind and body i a fete a of which Tail and ii avg an j j was evidently the hero. A moment occurred 3n s r r r Joni to prosecute j in which thoughtless of All but my love i threw re i fir successful that myself a suitor at her feet. She heard me with Iii Cive the chamber modest dignity while a tear of Joy which dim arc a c u t r and whom for a moment her finc eyes convinced me a 11 Ion arcs cd in my . J Pride was the Only emotion which her heart i discovered that i was beloved i was an impostor but is my Witnel i deceived her not without remorse. In her presence i remembered nothing but herself j but in the stillness of Solitude sophistry and passion disappeared leaving a dreadful perspective before me. When i associated the idea of Aurora with the miserable Fate which was soon to fall upon her when i figured to myself her delicate hands employed in preparing the coarsest nourishment i shrunk Back with horror or started up covered with a cold perspiration. Dut self love would come to my Aid and i thought if she truly loved me she might yet be Happy. I would devote my life i swore to the task of strewing Flowers along her path. But All my Hopes All my fears cannot be told. Suf fice it to say that her father beloved me when i represented my estate s As being in Dauphiny a Distant province. I would not allow a Farthing of Aurora s portion to be settled otherwise than on herself so there was one baseness of which i was not guilty. Were married. At the altar a shivering ran through All my veins a general trepidation seized my whole and i should infallibly have Funk to the Earth in a flood of tears had not gome one come to my Rescue. The silly crowd around mistook the Hist cry of expiring virtue for an excess of sensibility. A fortnight after the marriage a had been arranged by Ray employers at whose mercy i was we started for Mon Elmart my unfortunate believing that we were going to a far Dif Ferent place. Several of the engravers were themselves our attendants disguised and As courtiers to our magnificent equipage. The Wollom you see before to a and citizens of by in circumstances and 7 a our occupation. To on and formed a till love slopped to disturb there lives a Nant a Man of respectable station awful moment of exposure arrived and when it did come it proved More terrible than Ever i had anticipated. The engravers made the car triage he drawn up before a mean and miserable cottage at the door of which eat my Humble but venerable father. Now came the awful disclosure. The poor deceived and surprised Aurora was handed out. The engravers came up they pulled off their disguise and be whom Aurora had to pointedly refused exclaimed to her no Madam no you have not been born or brought up for an engraver such a lot would have done too much Honor to you. A Bellows mender is worthy of you and such is he whom you have made your husband j trembling and boiling with rage i would have replied but the engravers entered the coach and like the shifting scene m a theatre All our grader disappeared with them. Poor Aurora scarcely heard what had been said. The truth had flashed upon her and she Sank Back in a swoon. Recollect that i had now acquired a considerable share of sensibility and delicacy from my late life. At that cruel moment i trembled alike at the thought of losing the woman i adored and of seeing her restored to life. I lavished on her the most tender cares yet almost wished those cares might be unavailing. She recovered at length her senses but the moment her frenzied Eye met mine Mon Ster she exclaimed and again became Insen ble. I profited by her condition to remove her from the sight of those who had gathered around and to place her on an Humble Straw Here i remained beside her till she opened her eyes mine shrunk from her glance. The first use she made of her speech was to interrupt the broken acclamations of love shame and re Morse which fell from my tips and to beg to be left alone Tor a time. The Niece of the curate of the Parish however who chanced to be by remained beside her and the poor Young victim of my Villany for she was but eighteen seem glad of her attentions. How shall i describe the horrible night which i then passed 1 it was not on my own account that i suffered or feared. She alone was in my thoughts. I dreaded above All for my love was still predominant to see that heart alienated whose tenderness was necessary to my exis tence to read coldness in that Eye on whose look my peace depended. But could it be other Wise had i not basely Rilely darkened All the prospects of her life and overwhelmed her with intolerable shame and anguish 1 that Naglit was a punishment which would almost have wiped out any lesser sin. Frequently it May be believed i sent to know How Aurora was. She was Calm they told me and indeed to my Surprise she entered in the morning the room where i was. She was Pale but collected. I Tell before Wipt on the ground and spoke you have said Ehe it is on your future conduct that my forgiveness must depend. Do not Lake advantage of the authority you have usurped. The Niece of the curate has offered me an Asylum. There i will remain till this matter can be Ali ought of alas these were soothing but deceitful words. Within a Day or two after this event the inter i Val of which i spent in forming wild Hopes for the future i received at once two letters. The j first was from the engravers the cause of my i exultation and my fall. They wrote to me that my act Ustance had begot in them a Friendship for me that they had Eaph originally subscribed ascertain sum for the execution of their plot that they wished not to carry their revenge too far and that they would Supply me with Money and every thing necessary for entering into some business and ensuring the arc disable Tup port of myself and the other letter was from Aurora. Some she said which i feel for your conduct induce me to inform you that i am now in Lyons. It is my intention to enter a Convent which v ill rid me of your presence but you will do Well to hold yourself m Readi Ness to appear before every tribunal in prance till i have found one which will do me Justice and break Hie Chain in which you have bound j our this letter into despair. I hurried to the Curialo a rut could learn nothing of Aurora s Retreat although i became assured thai the curate and Hia Niece despising my condition had been the urgent advisors of the step Aurora had taken. I then hastened to Lyons where Iho affair had now created a great sensation. I lived unknown however and obscure and saw Only the engravers who notwithstanding the base plot which they had through me effected were men of not ungenerous dispositions. As they had driven me out of my former livelihood i conceived myself at Liberty to accept a sum which they offered me to enter into Trade with. They advised me How to dispose of it at once and i to id it out in a Way which speedily and without trouble to me augmented it greatly. Meanwhile the father of Aurora had made every preparation for annulling the marriage. This could Only be done by publicly detailing the treachery which had been Practised. Never perhaps was a court House More crowded than that of Lyons on the Day on which the Case Xmas heard. Aurora herself appeared and the eyes of All present not to speak of motown. Unknown and unseen 1 shrunk into a Corner like a guilty thing. The counsel for Aurora stated the Case and pleaded the Vic Tim s cause with to much eloquence is to draw tears from Many eyes. No counsel arose for me and Aurora who merely sought a divorce without desiring to inflict that punishment which she might easily have brought Down on the offenders would at once have gained her suit had not one Man Arisen speak for me it was one of the engravers the one who had been refused As mentioned by Aurora. He made a Brief pleading for me he praised my character he showed and confessed How i had been tempted and How i fell. At last he concluded by addressing Aurora. Yes said he the Laws May declare that you Ore not his wife but you have been the wife of his bosom. The contract May be annulled and no stain May rest upon you. But a Utain May be upon another. Can you will you throw the blot of illegitimacy upon one even More in Nocent than yourself 1" this Appeal was understood and was not made in vain. The trem bling Aurora exclaimed no no and the tears Felt fast As she spoke. The marriage was not no longer sought to be annulled. But while the contract which i had signed with my own name believed by them to be the family name of the Marquis of roup Ron wins declared valid it was also determined that Aurora should re main unmolested by the adventurer who had so far deceived her. Every Legal precaution was taken that i should have no control Over her or her affairs. After this event i did not Long remain in Lyons where i heard my name branded everywhere with infamy. Master by life Means i have related of a considerable sum i went to pans where i assumed a foreign name. I entered into business and More to drown remembrance than from any other cause pursued it with an ardor which few have evinced in the like circumstances. The wildest speculations were those which attracted me most and Fortune favored me in a most remarkable Way. I be came the head of a flourishing commercial Ere five years had passed away had amassed considerable wealth. At times How Ever the remembrance of my wife threw to into fits of anguish and despair. I dared not think attempting to go near her until it chanced i had it in my Power materially to serve a Banfer in Lyons who pressed me much to pay him a visit. After much uneasiness and resolved to accept to Elini tuition. Once More i entered Lyons Ana on this occasions with an equipage which was net borrowed though As handsome As my tonner one. My Friend the banker on being questioned told me that Aurora still lived in the vent and was admired for her reserved to of conduct and fur her unremitting attention to or boy but he told me that her i author had just died leaving her almost dependent on the Charity of the abbess. This recital excited m to the most Lively emotions. I took an Opportunity Soan afterwards of visiting one of the engravers to scarcely knew me changed As i but who received me warmly. I requested him to assemble the creditors of the father of Aurora and to pay his debts giving him funds for that purpose. I told him to Pur Chase some pieces of furniture which i knew to be priced by Aurora. V every hour of my stay in Lyons strengthened my desire to see my wife and at least t8 fold my boy m my arms. The feeling at length be came irresistible and i revealed myself to the banker beseeching him to find some Way of taking me to the Convent. His astonishment to find in me the poor much spoken of Bellows mender was beyond description. Happily however he was acquainted with the abbess and assured me that it was easy for me at least to obtain if sight of my wife. Eie an hour had passed away Rny Friend had taken me there. I was introduced As a parisian merchant and be held with emotions my wife seated in the Convent parlor with a Lovely child asleep on her in conversation with her venerable Friend. Aurora now about Twenty three years of age seemed to be More Lovely than Ever. I had purposely wrapped myself closely up and she knew me not though i perceived an involuntary shudder when she first saw me a if my presence reminded her of some once familiar object. I could not speak my Friend main tamed All the conversation. But the boy awoke. He saw strangers present and descended from his Mother s knee. Looking at myself and my Friend for a moment lie Forward too what were my feelings when i found myself covered with the Sweet caresses the innocent kisses of my child 1 an emotion which i had no Power to subdue made me Rise hastily and throw myself with my child at Teeteet of my Pale and trembling wife. Auroral exclaimed Al in accents "y9ur child claims tron you a father o Par Don Tho child clasp a her Knees and seemed to plead Wilh me. Aurora seemed ready to faint. Her lips quivered and her Eye was fixed As in stupor upon me Niilow of tears came to her Relief and she answered my Appeal by throwing herself into my arms. I know she sobbed whether you again deceive me but your child pleads too powerfully. Aurora is this event closes my history. I found Aurora much improved by adversity and Hare tasted a degree of happiness with her such As no Peni tence for my list offences could Ever make me deserving of. Only one incident in my history after my reconciliation with Aurora seems of attention i took my son and her with me to Paris but at the same time seeing it to be my wife s bought1 a Small country Bouse for her near Lyons. Sometimes we spent a few weeks there and on one occasion she invited me to go Down with her to be present at a fete for which she made preparations. Who were our the ten engravers who were the original cause of All that had passed it was indeed a Day of Pride to me when i heard Aurora thank them Tor the happiness which under the Agency of a wonder working Providence they had been the Means of Canter ring upon her.
