We must beg your forgiveness for not giving
that seedy response to your letter which it demon
sled, wen compared with the many anonymous
and instilling communications with which we arc
annoyed. If we are not mistaken, we recognise in
you a lady, posseeaing all those finer qualties which
are the true ornaments of your sex. The style and
sentiment of your epistle, indicate a person not on
legtialtited with the human heart, and show you at
,once to be worthy of the love of the most exalted,
much lees such humble individuals ar; we conceive
ourselves to be. There are times when such sen
timents come home to the hearts of us weary so
journers upon life's pilgrimage, and steins to whis
per the necessity of seeking that happiness which
is found only in the society of the pure and virtu•
one of '•Eve's daughters. Oh how deep, flow ex
hatialless is the love of woman—it is more valuable
than countless wealth and more precious than the
mines of Peru. And it should not be urged as an
objection if this feeling from the vehemence of its
nature should impel) her to the commission of acts
which in her calmer moments elle would condemn
—that is to leave her home quietly without the eon •
sent of her parents with the men she loves best.
