upon .the subject. I sent him some' extrernety_

In a few days a message came to me to go to
Mr. Brown immediately, for he feared he was
sinking fast.
'Sinking fast P said 1. 4

The boy who had tome from , Mr. Brown's

this second extraordinary fancy of Mr. Angus-
Ms Brown.

I however, lost no time in going to my ec
