Edward and Harold had to come constant visitors to a july and frequent attendants upon the Steps other Lovely guest. In truth it was perceived that a rivalry for her smiles and society had sprung up Between the two cousins who were till now looked upon As the Orestes and by Lades of the town so Strong was their in affix air proceeded so miss Murray s hostess thought it her duty to try and squeeze out of her Young Friend what her intentions respecting the Young men were. My dear mrs Lilly one morning after my dear Fanny i was very glad to see you and Edward Gaunter looking Over those engravings together last night the engravings Are very plied miss Murray while her eyes sparkled with a Mirthful mrs.

Johnes nor the described by mrs. Spooner. She was Onate unaffected gentle girl with lilith of remaining firm and steadfast i cause and yet had the Power of herself to the ways and manners of the whom she associated. The neigh she had just entered was new and a to her in every respect. She had b r Early Day sin the deep retirement of House where right thoughts and Lings have time to take Root and a two evidence in London had generalised without impairing their strength lured her perhaps inclined to laugh at intolerance and overweening vanity As imagine the country town to be rid yet her laugh was so musical nature that it was As pleasant to the to the ear and if mrs. Spooner s Obser had not been circulated Fanny Mur Ald have been As decidedly popular As rite candidate always is before his elec but i have not met one in per be person in a Hundred who however de of the Worllie Leaness of the source Linch an evil report Springs can never disabuse his or her mind at once at its be jibe and be in feeling As if the evil had i painted the heart. We All want Faith in not have paid two and Uvo Pence a Ber to that everlasting bookseller s bag Man who is continually bringing specimens of All Mariner of arts tied by the neck in a Blue bag. I was or. Edward More than i was. Let me see now three red stitches and two re plied the Young lady heading Over her embroidery. What could mrs. state by mrs. Caunter mean Here but to her son s re turned her Friend opening up a Tyen my dear Fanny you should not encourage him miss Murray from her seat As though was a Tifer her turn to look an gry1, nor do she replied one of the barriers to anything approaching society in a country town is the shameful perpetual watch ing and whispering and misrepresent ing because misunderstanding of every Petty occurrence. I cannot and will not shut myself up from every human most agreeable Here. It must be perfectly Well known that i do not encourage either of those Young men As lovers. If either of them1 be rain enough to suppose they have led captive my heart when they have Only inter Seti my understanding i cannot help it. I defy them or the scandal lovers of this , to adduce one single word or act of coquetry against me there Are Rea sons Why 1 should be above it and i Trust i am so but i can hardly expect them to understand or believe this miss Murray having so said resumed her Scot and he r embroidery and mrs. Lilly went to the breakfast room to catch her husband before he went out. My were the first not know what to. Make of that girl. She perplexes me. From what you told me the Ollier Day she had really Nemo nothing and yet she scorns decided advantages in the most imprudent manner. From what i gather from you it seems doubtful Vav unit she really will have or. Lilly did not permit his wife to finish the sentence. Here peat cd not at All doubtful it is perfectly certain that after she is Twenty one years of age she will not have a sixpence she can Call her my Lilly it is really very deploys in that you never fold me of this before far the idea has gone abroad that she is Rich. What will they say when they discover the contrary one of mrs. Lilly s strongest peculiarities was that she could not keep a secret much less could she conceal from her intimate what had been told her without Reserve or any injure tons not to reveal in. Consequently it suon got trumpeted Forth that Fanny Murray would not have a sixpence to Call her own after she was us Uirt one. For once the town s peo or. A Sec who if to drop the curtain upon a drama which she thought had to her astonishment and Knock at or. Lilly s d could it be Sher strained her Eye balls to be the ight of the Street lamp revealed to her he form of or. Harold Pannier entering the House. The affair was now getting serious the respond Siudy became too great for a single witness and she determined to step in next door and con Cousin Harold manifestly Embar by consented to join her neighbor i in the watch and two pair of eyes riveted on Lilly s door. The catastrophe approached. Or. Edward Caunter was seen returning in the Dis Tance and by a strange coincidence As he passed the House who should is sue from it but his the meeting was passing they regarded each other for some minutes without speaking then they talked in suppressed tones which gradually became loud and angry uni at last they walked hastily away and their words arid their persons were soon lost in the distance. What do you think of that exclaimed mrs. Spooner triumphantly. Mrs. Johnes was so surprised that she protested herself perfectly unable each her s Virtues and the More we feel in Cline to doubt the truth or purity or Justice of go fellow men so much the More should we it 1 inclined to doubt the truth and purity and j Nice of our hearts. I Gaunter was not far wrong in her judg ment Rhen she thought that both her son and would most Likely be captivated at or a time by the new face that had Imong them. Edward was won by her a and Harold by her singing both by Neial a Smatlin.

She could not stately As she is Issue a miss Murray to be looked at so As i did no go and see her she came to see me you Are a conceited Little puss to say mrs. Lilly. I should be a hypocrite if i thought so without saying least you who have been so kind to me you will not be kind to yourself Fanny How Aljy really any girl of common sense would have managed a Declara Tion from Edward Caunter before his. He question raised in the town is hich of the cousins is Likely to make of the first offer.
