Vork, aml touk up their abode in a street
of s-oinewbat aii.-toeiaey preten-ion'-.
The lather, a you inay gue.-s by the
uaine, was ot I-reneh origin. Ihe
mother was an Knglis-h woinan. l!oth

barely eighteen when her parents settled
in New York. With the eonliding na

''He had met Marie L'Kstrange at the
houe of a friend, and was strutk with
her unaffected sitnplicity of nianncr, so
dillerent to tbe idea be had formed of the
Kreneh frivolity and mannerisui he had
known in others.
