tooth-ache.       Apropos, I must remember that the
maid liked Hayes; �he laughed so� when conversing
with Sally that she suspected �it might be him.� Hayes
is a very good-humored, likeable fellow, of the
Traddles order, a good son, an industrious, eco-
nomical fellow, very careful, as Sally (and I)
have remarked, not to allow his attentions to one

a precise, facetious air, will be his father�s fac-
simile when he grows old, and, probably, continue
a bachelor.                 The girls are invited to New-
ark tomorrow afternoon, to visit the Crocketts,

says Sally) and, returned, met Mat and Eliza
on Broadway yesterday.      He didn�t join

the stars shining, I had some thought of a night
in the boats, but didn�t effect it, going home
