Now is it not proper for you to go and do likewise it is not enough for the heart to , and tie eyes to Sevrini in tears when a generous Section is recorded. If it mikes a proper Impre Sufon you will not be Happy until you Geraldine looked straight on. She hardened her heart sometimes and when she did her aunt saw it in the expression of her jecs Turnbul Al most to hard and tearless she had a Long time believed that she was very generous in giving her Money her aunt s observations had nearly convinced her that generosity was something More than giving what she did not care for or want and it made her very uncomfortable but she was too stubborn to confess she was wrong god had not yet softened her heart she knew but Little of prayer and had very Seldom proved How a prayer is answered when it is Laid before the Footstool of the almighty m a pure and Humble spirit aunt Jane loved her Derly and the More dearly she loved her the More anxious she became that Geraldine should con Quer the evil and cultivate the Good of her Dis position but that is a thing the Young arc slow to understand.
