should regulate itself. Tho cord of
loyalty, binding love can not be stretch

j it breaks, love is released. A man and
woman aro married to each othor, not
to all their acquaintances an 1 ov >ry cu

that they kuow whut they wishj,
and that they can arrange their
affairs without into, mediation. Tho
liberty they aro gonorally willing to
give the one to the othor they are re
strained fron giving by tho question of
appearances. From this defcrenoo to
tho society they secretly despise they
insure mutnal weariness an A dissonance,
and forego likewise the satisfaction and
advancement they might, havo gained
