her supposed overwhelming grief, when she
nearly set him laughing, despite his real sense
of the solemnity of the occasion, by a sudden �Oh!  I
only sent for you to try on a pair of mourning gloves
� see if they fit! �         Thackeray�s words about
Blanche Amory�s �sham loves, sham griefs� &c apply
to her.    Her recognition by the Eytinge family occur-
ed after this fashion.      Mrs E. long suspecting
Sol�s position, at length got informed of particulars,
probably by John Wood.   Going over to Brooklyn, whet-
her by Sol�s connivance or not, she inquired of Al-
lie, �and pray are you married to my son?� Allie
confessed that she was not, but pleaded that Sol had
been much more steady since his connexion with her.
Sol�s sisters were dead against the recognition of Al-
lie and Clarence out-did them in belligerent declara-
tion.     Now, however, Allie (or �Maggie� as they
call her)  has won Young America over to her side
even to disclosing what has been said to him by
Cahill of Allie, whereat Sol is furiously wrath
even to threatening pugilistic revenge and the per-
sonal denouncement of Cahill as a d____d fool
and a liar.          The text of the row was,
the opinion that Allie is a �mercenary woman.�
(She has made up a purse of some $200, which
Sol is ^|un-|acquainted with.   Perhaps she intended it for
him, at all events for their joint use.)     Josey,
with her illegitimate brat, now resides in New York.
