gained, full of resentful importance, passions, spites
& littlenesses .      Yet what magic is there in a pair
of bright eyes & a sweet voice � I know she is, and
always was a thorough little snob, yet I like to think
of her when she opened the door to myself and Charley
Brown, the first time I saw her; and of her
sitting beside me at Burton�s./       I have always
been great at finding mare�s nests all my life.

to the �Lady Geraldine� of   Elizabeth Barrett Browning?
What a divine-thoughted woman must its authoress be!

place in Broad Street.         Return, to room, &
