      Cahill�s Expectations.   Fan�s Tea-Fight.
�beastly, dirty city,� as she calls it �Oh Han-
nah!    I could not live here, even for Charley.
I should pine away and die.     One quiet walk
with you is worth,� &c. &c.    No little one, you

Mr. Star, present at our Christmas doings, came
and Haney, Mr. and Mrs. E. descending, these
with Jack forming the company.        Left at 11
