as the greatest dealer in poulny in all New. England.
About Thanksgiving- time, you may see in all pare d'
Boston, Josiah Baker's wagons, literary cransined with
turkeys geese, chickens and docks, together with
pumpkins and squashes. and all manner of Tbsairsgiv
ing sauce. It was thought by some, if Josiah should
die without an heir to inherit his virtues and ;torpedo~

to be abolished altogether in that region; for, as to lae •

on one occasion. Josiah didn't die, to be sore, but
'twas just as bad for the time being, as you shall see.
Contrary to all usages, and probably for the eke d
doing somethinz wherewith to distinguish himself, the
Governor of Massachusetts appointed Thankagfringste

ill the habit of having his blood relations to roamer*

sides his worthy sister Hester wfuld bare felt herself
scandalized indeed, if she were denied the privilege of
bustling and scolding, and storming about as usual, in
the hurry of preparation for the joyous festival. Not
that she was M-natured, or given to scolding oncterort
dinary eircumstanecs—far from it; but there is a time
for everything. Then Josiah's numerous relatives,
(and you've no idea, unless you've been there, how
numerous one's relatives are in that country,) who were
always expected to partake of the luxuries of his fart
yard, and to devour, with an appetite 'which &ll:n=4P

thou.-th Ids heart was not as ligEt as usual, fat; be
pi:ied the Boston folks, and could not help saying now
sad then, as he cut a slice of turkey, —Governor Lim,
ruin ought to have known better."
But there was this drawback sport his happiness, it
v. as a trifle compared with the consternation of the Bass
tun people. His old customer;, who had for fifteen ot
twenty years relied upon him fur supplies, magi had
never once been disappointed, could not believe distills
would fail to appear now, and even the day preceding
Thanksgiving, refused to put chase of others andsr the
full conviction that be would come though at the elev . . ,
en h hour. But, alas, be came not; and for the first
time in their lives, and 1 hope the last, many of the
good citizens were obliged to forego the luxury of Is
roast turkey, and dine upon roast beef; and, instead ot
being thaul:fill, they did nothing but eat and drink, and
grumble. But there is no calamity, however great,
from which good may nut be extracted.
This unhappy event led the good people to reflect
upon what might be the consequence if Josiah should,
he removed by death, leaving no issue to keep up the
~ , toelt of turkey;; and as life is uncertain, even in Vell•
Enoct, they sat about devising means of averting so se.
rious an evil. Accordingly, Josiah began to receive
letters ad‘i.ing. him to marry; disinterestedly pointing
out to him tb' cheerfulness of his present mode eflifet
and hinting also that if he should die childless, Thanks,
giving would be broken up. Now the subject of mat•
rim:my had never entered Josiah's head. His maiden
sister attended to his house—darned his srockings foe
Sunday—washed his neck and ears for him of a Satan
day night—and combed his hair in more ways than
one. In short, he couldn't see what more a woman
could do. However, the subject bad got into his mind,
and it was nut easy to get it out again. It was con.
stantly before him. He could not even sleep in meets

how nice and chirk the young women looked. Finally
he concluded to open his mind to his sister and ask bet

advised him (with magnaminity which none but a SiP

his friends-and Mary stated that she was willing to
region her authority to another for the sake of promos
ting his Inippincas; but in order to secure the latter,
she must make the match herself, at least so far as to
point out a proper person for him to court. This was
a great rein - fto him, but ho would have been better
pleased if she could have settled the whole matter; for
he had a great horror of entountering one of the sex
face to face, having never been in company with any
but his own relations. However, his sister, who was
in the habit of gossippino, in the intermission with all
the women that came to meeting, soon made choice ot
a wife for her brother, in the person of Sally Japecti.
