behavior with Nast.         Pretty Matty! with

your voice, normally sober and earnest � you
who are depicted in the earliest family daguer-
rotype as a very plump-faced, innocently-sulky
child � may some good fellow love you very
dearly and make you very happy and God
bless you and all womanly women!     Shall
I ever cease to be interested in them? I hope
not.
