not remember that a great impulse had
been given . to our acquaintance by the
surrender on my part of a large sapphire ,

reed cotton mill in Massachusetts
fornishsd such things too liberally for
me to value them. It took some time

my shirt studs. And yet I dare say that

care fOr‘the,frail form of a- woman whose
heart had long 'since passed out of my

more than .the longing of the Zingari '

could I give,

Yet mindful . of my ditties 'as a host, I
quietly surrendered the infantile wonder,
and hastened to accompany 'the weary
physician to the door.'of our house. I
lingered a- moment, watching , ' him as he
passed the gate,' when suddenly there
darted from among- the , trees the same

Scottish highlands.. The moonlight fell
