She was then an orphan child and commonly reported to be Rich. Often i sat after a Day of toil and vexation and listened to her innocent voice breathing Forth of the notes peace of happiness which flowed cheerfully from a Light heart and Felt a portion of that Tranquility steal Over my bosom. Such was Eliza Huntley when i first knew her. Several years had elapsed during which time i was absent from the City when walking along one of the most fashionable squares i saw an elegant female figure step into a Carriage Fol Lowed by a gentlemen and two pretty children. I did not immediately re Cognize her face but my , who was by my Side pulled my do you not remember Jirtle Eliza who used to sing for us when we lived together in Walnut 1 did re member it was herself. She used to be , of treat ing her Little Circle of friends with romances and at last she acted out a neat Romance herself. She came out into the Gay Circle of life under the auspices of her guardian.

She just escaped a trap he went the next Day to her guardian to inquire More particularly into her affairs and receiving the same answer he dropped his suit at once. The next serious proposal followed soon after and this too came from one who succeeded to a Large portion of her esteem but apply ing the same Cru Cible to love he offered she found a like result. He too left she rejoiced in another to Idunate escape. She sometime afterwards became acquainted with a Young Man of slender Fortune in whose approaches she thought she discovered More of the timid diffidence of love than she had witnessed before. She did not Check his in process of time he too made an offer. But when she spoke of her Fortune he begged her to he is let it is to virtue Worth and Beau said he that i pay my to Fortune.
