as he had used to.     He is �different in his
manner� towards her.   The girl would willingly
have his liking; she secretly revolts at being jud-
ged cold and selfish; it is because I accredit
her with a woman�s heart that we are such
friends.  We are always prone to act up to the
estimate formed of us.          Apropos of selfish-
ness, I discovered that some allusion on my part
to �Chuzzlewit,� in my talk on the eve of Nast�s
departure had made her desirous of reading it.
This night I had brought a brief, ridiculously
written article by one of its editors, from the Illustrated N.Y. News,
accompanying a cut of Nast, from a similar
photograph to the one sent to the family.  Sally
wouldn�t allow that she possessed interest in
the subject.            Anne was present part of
the time as we watched the procession.  At 10.

culars and presently returned.    Mr and
Mrs Edwards he were at the theatre; Haney
and I tarried till they returned, I talking
with Sally and Anne, and half-writing out
my report.       When Haney and I got outside
he, after mentioning that he intended going 
for a Sunday�s shooting to Lake Mahopac,
in company with Alf. Waud, added �I must
tell you something � Jim�s cut!�       Parton
