the evening with Shepherd to the Academy of Music,
there to witness the Hanlon�s feats of Zampillaeros-

sit by our fireside so quietly and lonely. I anti-
cipated having a gentleman boarder to cheer us
up but he� didn�t come, in short.        �She wants
me to write to her as she says no one does or cares
