I thought she would be among he first to Aid in Enterprise like this did you read the description of the fair at a we shall have a splendid one soon then Jane will repent of her oddity.

Dress manners and characters were Ful y discussed parties and balls projected flirtations canvassed and All the end less Roun of Emma Rob arts and her Cousin Ann were among the most zealous Emma being one of the direct resses of the social Cir How handsome she whispered Henry Benton to his Friend harm and so benevolent too. Did you hear How enthusiastically she spoke of the approaching fair i heard her Tell Sis Ter Catherine i hat it would do so much How unusual to hear Young ladies think of such things i must be come better acquainted Wilh and crossing the room he began an Anima Ted conversion Wilh miss Roberts who failed not to convince him still More that she was truly and uncommonly disinterested. I had no said Henry to his sister on their re urn your Circle was so pleasant. I think 1 shall accompany you More frequently in it is sufficiently replied Catherine but i sometimes doubt its Utility. The work which Saccom polished by the Young ladies 1 have feared was taken from and thus injuring the interest of poor persons and the time exertion and Money thus spent in ostentation and Parade might be employed in a More simple and private Way by individuals you Are too scrupulous my Dea Catli Arine surely United Effort must accomplish More than individuals and sociability and Friendly feeling Are thus promoted and As miss Roberts told you others Are i Hope it May be so but do not think me censorious if i say that i sometimes think others might be benefited still More if these Young ladies were each Ore of them to visit those scenes of poverty and distress and Aive their counsel sympathy and assistance. Now it seems pleasant to them to meet together when they have other engagements and talk in general terms of Charity etc., but How few it is to be feared know what Are self denial and perseverance against obstacles in order to do i cannot judge them so harshly it seems to that ladies like miss Roberts for instance Are More to a admired for the sincere Benevolence of heart which display than for All the charms of person or eve i of mind. I know nothing of miss Roberts which would contradict that appear Ance of kindness so delightful so Prais worthy whenever and whenever seen of which you speak. With you i have often a dined the Irhe Iest she manifests in every Ihinger Elaimy i our Circle and i Only Hope m dear brother that Public and private Charity May accompany each other. But i have been surprised not to see miss Gleason at any of our meetings she seems social and Friendly and i have expected to meet her months passed by bringing the wished for fair near at hand and re porn said that Henry Benton be coming daily Mote and More pleased with the pretty my riesling and benevolent miss Roberts. No one could approve of on or wish that they might prove , Moie ardently than the lady for i. B non was. As the is hers. Would hive stated him a Safe parti the mothers a Desi Roble and t be daughters a perfect one with Leahh. Rank and talents joined to accomplished manners and firm integrity his society Ivas universally courted. As yet however he had never paid his Devoirs at any fair shrine but line most of those whom fashion or interest has not moulded to do her bidding it had a Beau Ideal in his own mind of he being whom he should wish to Call his and that had never yet been realized. Miss Roberts Attar Tive As she was in person would prob ably have excited in him Noj Peculiar interest had not her apparent Benevo Lence of heart won his attention one who could talk ihii3 eloquently of Relie ving suffering must he thought be amiable to no common degree. She cannot be one of these frivolous heart less beings absorbed in selfish gratification thinking not of the responsibility devolving upon them and forget Ting the sacred lies that binds us each to each. In was a cold and dreary night when Henry Benton and his sister sat by their cheerful fire conversing upon the merits of a Book from which i had just been Reading. Every thing around looked Bright and pleasant and it might Well seem almost impossible for the inmates of that dwelling to think Hal any one could be less Happy than themselves. It seems to be the natural effect of extremes of Joy or sorrow to prevent us from realizing the misery of others. It is difficult for the heart bounding Wilh Joy to whom All things round Bear a Voules tie Rose to imag Ine the smaller miseries or great sufferings of others and one him self plunged into the Depths of Uri Hap press is too Apt to be absorbed by the consideration o his own our friends were not selfish bal certain it is that the misfortunes w hit h flesh i their not present to their minds when Catherine was informed that a poor woman lived near her who was or had been very sick. You were going out for a Short Lime said she of her brother and i will go with you of far As this woman s House where you can Call for me As you do not venture out such an evening As Catherine. You can Send some of to inquire into the circumstance and give her but i shall feel better satisfied to see How she does do not object my dear added do you think the cold an Pene trate through All this fur i know the exercise will Benefit me. Come let us go. This is the said she As they arrived at the dwelling where she had been to id the object of her visit re sided. Now you can come for me at you and she gently opened the door of a room where a Light faintly glimmered. Bun she was not As she afterwards declared prepared for the scene that met her View. _ in a miserable hut insufficient to protect its inmates from the i clemency the weather was extended the sick woman on a Low bed supported by miss Glea son who was administering a cordial the apartment too though indicating poverty bore an air of neatness and Little comforts were strewed Here and there As if so me kind hand hid Lent its Aid. And you Are Here before me Laid Catherine advancing towards Lier. Yes t have been Here time. Mrs. been very sick but she seems More comfortable i had never heard of her until to answered Catherine or should have visited her before i have brought Heij some trifles which i Hope May Benefit her till we can do gome thing the sick woman if i had what is justly my due i need not trouble others so much. Said she striving the speak distinctly Long nights have i never closed my to striving to earn something Lor myself and my poor children she told me unless i did the work cheap i could not have it and i did it almost for nothing rather than not do it at All but i have Neve Beeri paid even who employed you mrs asked Catherine. Miss Roberts sent for me and gave her sewing to do and last night she sent me word that unless i completed some work w Lich i have had out for a week she must withdraw in All from do not agitate yourself about it mis said miss Gleason. Gently our wants shall be supplied until Are Able to exert yourself Iii hour t hut my dear Young lady i cannot but think of it. I should not have minded it for myself for i am sure unless i could Hope to show my gratitude for your kindness and watch Over my children i have nothing to live for but to think of them or. Benton instant stepped in at the door but not being perceived he did not interrupt her by accosting his sister. "1 have seen them cry for bread and i told miss Roberts that destitute As i was i would sew for any thing that could procure them bread. Long nights i have never slept but Laboured without a moment s test to procure them some thing. And when i asked her for the Money she said she never paid those Little sums till they amounted to some thing and added the could not Stop either for she was going to some society or Circle As she called it and could not listen.
