Sketches of Young Couples
The Plausible Couple
DO YOU RECOGNIZE THIS COUPEE?
The plausible couple have many
titles. They are a "delightful
couple," "an affectionate couple,"
"a most agreeable couple," t "a
good-hearted couple," and ' the
best-natured couple in existence."
The truth is, that the plausible
couple are people of the world; and
either of the way of pleasing the
world has grown much easier than
it was in the days of the old man
and his ass, or the old man was
but a bad hand at it, and knew
very little of the trade.
"But it is really possible t o
please the world?" says some
doubting reader. It is. indeed.
Nay, it is not onlv very possible,
but very easy. What then? A man
need but crawl upon his hands and
knees, know when to close eyes
nuil when his ears, when to stoop
and when to stand upright; and,
if bv the world is meant that atom
of it in which he moves himself, he
shall please it never fear.
Now, is readily seen, that if a
plausible man or woman have an
easy means of pleasing the world
by an adaptation of self to all its
twistings and twiuings, a plausible
man and woman, or. in other words
a plausible couple, playing into
each other's hands, and acting in
concert, have a manifestadvantage.
Hence it is that plausible couples
scarcely ever fail of success on a
pretty large scale; and hence it is
that if the reader, laying down his
weekly paper a t the next full
stop, will have thegoodness to re
view his or her circle of acquain
tance, and to search particularly
for some man and wife with a large
connection and a good name, not
easily referable to their abilities of
their wealth, he or she ( that is, the
male or female reader) will certain
ly find that gentleman and ladv,
on a very short reflection, to be a
The plausible couple are the most
; ecstatic people living; the most
sensitive people -- to merit on the
face of the earth. Nothing clever
or virtuous escapes them. They
have microscopic eyes for such en
dowments, and can find them any
where. The plausible couple never
fawn, oh, no! They don't even
scruple to tell their faults. One is
too generous; another too candid;
a third has a tendency to think all
people like himself, and to regard
mankind as a company of angels;
a fourth is kind-hearted to a fault.
"We never flatter, my dear Mrs.
Jackson , ' ' says the plausible couple,
"we speak our minds. Neither
you nor Mr. Jackson have faults
enough. It may sound strangely,
but it is true. You have not faults
enough. Y'ou know our way,
we must speak out, and always do.
Quarrel with us for saying so, if
you will; but, we repeat it, you
have not faults enough!"
The plausible couple are no less
plausible to each other than to
third parties. They are always
loving a n d harmonious. The
plausible gentleman calls his wife
"darling," and the plausible lady
addresses him as "dearest." If it
be Mr. and Mis. Bobtail Widger,
Mrs. Widger is "Lavinia, darling"
and Mr. Widger is "Bobtail, dear
est." Speaking of each other,
thev observe the same tender form.
Mrs. Widger relates what "Bob
tail" said and Mr. Widger re
counts what "darling" thought

she has heard the Clickits speak of
you, she must not tell you in j
what terms, or you will take her

ledge of the Clickits; the plausible;
lady immediately launches out in ,
their praise. She quite loves the
Clickits. Were there ever such i
true-hearted, hospitable, excellent j
people? such a gentle, interesting j
little woman as Mrs. Clickits?;
Were there ever two people inj
short, so little spoiled by the world j
as they are. "As, who, darling?" ;
cries Mr. Widger, from the opposite ,
side of the table. "The Clickits,,
dearest," replies Mrs. Widger. j
"Indeed, you are right, darling," j
Mr. Widger rejoins: "the Clickits i
are a very high-minded, worthy, !

grows quite eloquent upon this sub

feels very strongly whenever such
people as the Clickits and some
other friends of his here he glances
at the host and hostess are men
tioned; for they are an honour of
human nature, and pleasantto think
of. "You know the Clickits, Mrs.
