Among the mani.offleers who). at the close of the Pen

the regiment- Ho had lately married the pretty,
portienleendaughter of a decMised brother officer: and
filled with romnntie visions or rural bliss and '!'love in a
cottage." the pair. who were equally unskilled' in the
practical details of hirsute-keeping, fancied they could live
in affluence, and enjoy all the luxuries of life, imam belt
pay which formed their sole income.
They took up their abode near a pleasant tows in the
south of England. and for a time got On pretty well; but

casually acquainted, and soh+ plausible manners and
appearance completely imposed iin•the frank, unsuspect

represented it, a %aria and rapid fortUne. This was to
be effected by embarking considerable capital in the ma
