She first manifested it one layabout four months ago when your Ellen nurse and boy Vivere a i my House and we Vivere com paring babies i r Lime said Harry ing i i i in remarked of Ruffu have talked so Iauch about Small feet being is to Beauty in woman i had in part in Gibej your foolish notions la King up my Little Ellen s foot and cracking an Almond yet Lisle a h deep interest. G at your wife that i wished her foot when she grew up would be As and As pretty As her a yes yes i remember and Caro line spoke up rather sharply rather More so at least than become a Loving wife of two years and said while her Cheek heightened in i wish you had married , if you think a Small foot so very Desi Rable yes i recollect that perfectly and it is one of the occasions. I alluded to. She is jealous As i told you not of you but of my wife s feet i exonerate you fully it amounts to the same thing which she is jealous of. She plainly envies Ellen but it is my fait As Well As yours too Harry for we have put the idea into her head i should t he sur prize in to should be productive of to indeed i Trust not so serious a re said Harry with a look of solicitude. But then women have made themselves wretched and their Hus bands too for Mere trifling i3ut this occurred four months she has forgotten it now but it grows worse. Ellen never conies to see us that after she leaves she does not have a fit of those pouting sulks the whole Day the Duse she does and hot does sue Deal Ellen 1 latterly with coldness. Have you not observed it by heaven i have i heart her at dinner As i was uncorking n bottle of port reply to something Ellen said about her going Down to s with her after dinner and get some Paris of shoes As i thought in a very ill humor de Way is i jul get by the tone but looking up and seeing Ellen looking As smiling As Ever a delightful wife i be got Linton concluded i and imagined the ill humor. But then Ellen is so Sweet tempered nothing car Oline would say to her would move her one would think you lauded Ellen so Piu Fuseley Harry to show Caroline in Darker shades but i Hope she with by the by have Good sense enough to get Over it and i increased the flame to Day too Don t you Remenier i was thoughtlessly enough i Sec now talk ing about a pretty woman i Lud met Down town who was faultless her Cpl which i said Weie not Only Large but she used them As if a Young lady s feet Vivere absolutely Given her Meily to walk with As wheels Are put under a locomotive a Fiat it May go somehow Over he ground instead of being As heaven designed them the loveliest features of Beauty Given her As wings Are Given Angels to Transfer her person Frow place to place reveal ing in the act the Harmony and dignity that dwells in motion 8 i remember laughing at you liar by but your wife did t no i should have been pleased if she had Only looked grave. She looked very angry in my opinion Well 1 said grave out of respect for your feelings Lionel. She did look mad and at the reflection How ill anger sits on a pretty face evil passions Aie All ugly and the Coji Trast is so great when they display themselves in a Beautiful countenance like mrs. Linton a for instance that the effect is singularly unpleasing. On harsh homely faces is less con Trast and the effect is less 1 recollect a Beautiful girl of eighteen i once saw very angry. She Femi Dej me of an Angul fallen but i am very sorry i have said anything to make Caroline envious of Ellen. Two such friends what a sad affair it would be if this should Dis sever their Friend i fear it will said Linton gravely it were indred to be regretted. Con i oud your mania for pretty feet har i will say if it is to be the cause of mingling Alloy in your cup of con nubian happiness. Caroline is such a Lovely and generous minded woman yes there is Only this to mar our Felicity. In All else she is an incomparable creature Harry i will make Ellen Wear no. 3 s said his Friend warmly. No no let it work its own cure but it wont. Let woman that loves her husband once get the idea into her head that he admires another woman for some Point of charact6r in person she does or possessing less perfection she will soon believe that his admiration extends to the whole woman and that he loves her belter than herself. So Ripe jealousy Earnest of it As Dow or. Would say in his very excellent Patent sermons her thoughts will sit brooding in the nest of suspicion upon the eggs of envy till they Hatch the Little chickens of jealousy.5 these chickens must be plucked Ere they gel full feathered can it be done Lionel with an interest that called Forth his Friend s sympathy. Caroline s person and figure Are faultless and though she wears no. 3 a if had a foot for no. 2 a it won be a deformity. She is full three in person larger Thyri Ellen and her foot is not a hair s breadth to Large Lor her this 1 have always said Harry and so have i. I said that i would not marry a woman who wore a num Ber higher than a French one. I say so now i married such a woman but i did not say a woman s foot could not be perfectly Beautiful even with number fives.1 she May be tall enough and Majestic enough to require such a foot How would mrs. Siddons have looked with a foot like Euen a absurd and deformed you Are changing your said Linton laughing. Not a Shadow i have always Ken As i do. I Only Haye always said 1 liked not a woman with a Large foot Jad a woman with too Large a foot which is very common i cannot endure what Are you coming to to this Point Caro Hiie s notions must be i versed or rather she must have her ideas on this subject corrected. As i have been mainly instrumental in giving her such notions in which both she and you have misunderstood me i must do my Best to make mailers right again 1 wish to mercy you would Harry if possible for to Tell you the truth it is ringing in my ears irom morning till night. What does she Box them asked Hany refilling very deliberately his Champaign Glass and looking up with a smile. Not it is almost As bad. The other morning i happened to Knock one of her shoes aside with my foot in crossing the chamber and she in stantly you would t have kicked Ellen Lee s shoe in that Way ill is just because i Wear a larger one than she does you treat and she burst into tears got info bed again and got up of eleven o Elock with swollen eyes and As silent As a mule Wolf upon my soul Linton i am sorry. But 1 have a plan to Appeal to her Good Senise what is it name it for heaven s Sake i was in Launitz s statuary gallery last week and saw there As i entered the door a statue of Dian in Casque quiver and Sandal Shoou i stood still without advancing nearer and Gaz d a Long time on the figure admiring its just proportions and faultless symmetry particularly i was fascinated with the was As Beautiful As Ellen show is said a after surveying it a a while and turning round to the sculptor How is it that every statue of the mythological beauties is the just size of the Medican this is he said pointing to the statue of the divine Huntress. The Venus personifies love and there fore Small in statute for Grace and love Are More appropriately and delicately illustrated by lessening the real. Dian personifies Woodland sports she is the Genius of the Chase Sho is therefore some inches taller than the Genius of love May be Fleet of foot and Light that she May pursue with Swift Ness you observe her feet Are leu Der and larger and More slender than those of the Medici which is to your left and they should be to preserve the poetical truth of her character you do not mean to say this statue of Dian is taller than the Venus de me i exclaimed with Surprise approaching it. Three he said smiling it s perfect symmetry has deceived indeed it said i a i went close up to it when i saw that he had spoken the truth. A but the symmetry of person was so Well maintained that a few Steps off i could have sworn it was not taller than Ellen of the foot larger than and and yet it was for it just the height of your wife and the foot a half Inch longer than her a excellent. And that has conceited you to the belief that in symmetry May lie the True principles of Beauty and nol in the foot no not exactly but that a be Large and yet be faultless.9 Gid my dear Harry very Good you Are gelling 1 nol a Jot More so than i have been for i yield nothing concede nothing of what i have advocated. I have Only Learnt something additional Well and How Are you going to make this knowledge Avail me in the Mailer of Caroline s growing envy i by taking her in to Morrow As if by Accident in passing by to see this statue and with Launitz s explanation of the True principles of Beauty As they exist in one and the other Dian and venue and with a Little Jack on my and address on your own we ill make her in perfect Good humor with herself. Nay i will wage Jishe would Lurn up her pretty a Little foot As Ellen s. I will Call by at your House for you As i Comei Down from Bond Street v you Are Are a Clever dog cried Linton grasping his hand with a Bright inc Eye. It shall be As you shall go to Morrow. I Hope this attempt to reconvert her will succeed i never doubt it Lionel come let us take a bumper to Lovely Diana and i will Toast your Venus Harry wives Are both god Desses and Dian shall reign in the Ems Pire of her own Chase Beauty As As Venus in that of love. Come line ton another glass.1 no Well i will finish this bottle alone then you keep Good Jyme by the by a Friend sent me a present of a dozen of that Fine old Paulding s Pale we used to drink so much of when we were at the hotel. Do you sigh for those Days. Linton no Harry no if i could Gei Caro line Over this fit of jealousy envy not jealousy my boy. Don t fear but All will come out Strait. She has been sighing for a must convince her is a goddess dear you must come Down and help me to drink up that Sherry. By the by that Nice fellow Sinclair wrote me a note he had just received a private Imp Oita to Onuf London particular and wants me to Call at his House to prove it. I had like to have forgot it.
