To my venerable Friend is not aware that have written this Story. 1 have not published it from any wish to glorify him but to exert a genial influence on the hearts of others to do my Niitme toward teaching society How to Oast out the Demon Penally by the voice of the Angel courier. It private claim ado on the congressional dockets the Principio in both places being heroically to scout and neglect what should be attended to and to give lh6 whole thought to what were better left undone and unsaid. Or. Wilkins soothed his conscience with the plea that he lived for his country no doubt his country is very much obliged to him bul it has unfortunately hitherto Laken no method to make ils sense of that obligation apparent or to lesson any of ils weight. Meanwhile As we have hinted his own affairs were falling not a Little behind hand and it did not require More than the Ordinary penetration of a woman to discover that fact. Still with the recklessness of a Gambler the More he suffered by the negligence toward his own affairs the More Inauen live did he become seeking in the excitement of partisan politics and the hazards of party chances that occupation of his mind which should enable him to shut his 63 is upon the financial difficulties int were accumulating about him and the Domestic discomfiture which had now invaded his once Happy House. At the time when our sketch opens he had be Corrie desperate. His patriotism was no More a thing of volition or a Mere amusement. In was life and death Wilh him. He had spent time and Money so liberally so extravagantly that office alone could make him whole or failing in that could provide him Wilh a Refuge from absolute Vanl. At least so he thought. Still he Endeavor de to conceal his dilemma. He succeeded but Only partially. His heaviest creditors suspected the truth bul they were too politic to betray Wise after their Generali ont they very turned their influence bit his lips. He was tempted to say something Hasty. He looked Al his children and thought better . 4-should be to be with you every evening but the other party Are straining every nerve we must employ All our tall is and on night the list or nominees for the City watch is to be examined and say Friday night then this was spoken in a voice a Little Sharp. Both husband and wife were now restrained by Good Breeding alone front what would have seemed very like a quarrel.

Wil Kins to have the whole Arcana of party management out of me. On that eve Ning we have to1 decide Between claims of two Bosi de Termine which of is Likely to marshal most in his troop of scavengers very important business certainly or. Wilkins.

You know 1 am never guilty of such extravagant said George w., with some heat. But you do become said his wife and that amounts to the same thing in the end in Aid of his Hopes. In another Man s Case with Wilkins for a , would have their motives in his own he was Loo Blind to see them or if he suspected1 the state of the would not acknowledge it even to himself. Mrs. George a Wilkins grew in Talienti we have said thai she had penetration enough to discover Bat he was embarrassed but she did not understand the whole of said the husband in a Sefi ened tone i am sorry to find you pry ing so much Ialo my business.
