taking a walk with an old comrade,
Jack Spiggot by name, who is just passing
into the state of old bachelorhood,
after the manly and blooming youth in
which I remember him. Jack was one
of the handsomest fellows in England
when we entered together in the I lighland
Buffs ; but I quitted the Cuttykilts early,
and lost sight of him for mnnv years.
Ah! how changed he is from those
days. He wear J a waistband now, and
has begun to dye his whiskers, //is
checks, which were red, are now mottled;
his eyes, once so bright and steadfast,
are the color of oecled nloverfe eccs.
"Are you married, Jack ?" said I, remembering
how consumedly in love lie
was with his cousin Lctty Lovelace, when
the Cuttykilts were quartered at Strathbungo
oomrf twenty years ago.
"il/anicd ? No," said lie. "Not money
enough. Hord enough to keep myself,
much more l . imilv, on five hundred
a yea?. G'ome to Dickenson's?there's
i some of the best Madeira in London there,
I my boy!"
bu wc wont and talked over old times.
7'he bill for dinner and wine consumed,
was prodigious; and the quantity of brandy
and water that Jack took, showed
what a regular boozer he was.
"A guinea, or two guineas. What
the devil do I care what i spend for my
dinner?" says ho.
"And Letty Lovelace," says 1.
Jack'scounteiumco full. However, lie
buvst mto a loud laugh.
"Letty Lovelace?" says ho. "She's
Lclty Lovelace still; hut Gad, such a
wizened old woman'.--She's as thin as a
thread-paper, (you remember what a figure
she had;) her nose has got red, and
her teeth blue. She's always ill; always
quarrelling with the rest of the family; always
psalm-singing, mul always taking
pills. Gad, 1 had a rare escape there.
Push round the grog, old boy."
Straightway memory went back to the
days when Lctty was the loveliest ot
blooming young creatures; when to hear
horsing was to make the licnrt jump into
your throat; when to see her dunce, was
better than Monlessu or Noblot; (they
were the Ballet. Queens of those days;)
wl.en Jack used to wear a locket of her
hair, with a little gold chain round his
neck, and, exhilarated with toddy, aftei a
sederunt of the C'uttykilt mess, used to
pull out his token, and kiss it, and howl
about it, to the great amusement of the
bottle-nosed old Major, or.d the rest of
"My father and her's could'nt put their
noses together," said Jack. "The General
wouid'ntcome down with more than
six thousand. My Governor said it
