single white feather, turning gracefully over
her bonnet of plain drab.• Everything that
pertained to Aunt ltnchel possessed tt

She:kissed me very softly, and then glided

saw her no more until the next morning, at ,
breakfast ; and her sail, sweet image daguer
reotype(' itself upon my memory forever.
• • AMU. Rachel was not old—she could not
have been more than twenty-seven. In form,
she was above the medium height in wonten,
slender and graceful. Her complexion was
clear,' almost transparent; mud a shadoW — of
suffering lay darkly upon her forehead, and
lingered far back in the_dopths of. her soft,
hazel oyes:--Her hair_ was 'wreathed around _
