BO?'S FIRST LOVE.
I CONTINUED. I
.Fair anti afflicted lady, you are
right; I am indeed a friend; nnd I
know not who you are. An almighty
influence-need I Darno it?-has
drawn me towards you. I know no?
thing, I seek to know nothing, but
that I am your blind aud devoted
..Pretty, was it not? Well, I tied
that to the stone, and remembering
my own accident, andthnt my charm?
er did not wear a tall, still' lint, I
uttered a warning cry, and tossed the
missive over the wall. Then I ran up
the hill, to soe how she liked it, and
ascended high enough in time to ob?
serve tho wliolo process of reading
the note, which she'did holding it at
arm's length, clutching it with both
hands, lips parted. If she bad stu?
died underra pre-Raphaelito painter,
she could not have done it better.
"What I Ind said seemed to be
satisfactory to her, for when she had
read it, she kissed the note twice,
aud thrust it in her bosom; looked
tip nt Hie sky, clasped her bauds, nnd
walked rapidly oil towards the bouse,
without attempting to communicate
with mo further.
"Immediately after that commence?
ment of n correspondence, wet wea?
ther set in, and I did not ace tho
mystery of my heart for a week; at
tho end of that time, the sun re-ap?
peared, and on mounting guard on
my hill, I perceived that slie was
once more in tho garden. She ap?
peared glad to see me, and motioned
mo down to tho foot of tho wall
again, and when I was there, tossed
mo over another letter:
.I cannot fully trust you till I have
scanned your features moro closely.
Swim tho moat and scale the battle?
ments, so shall we converse at ease.'
"What did she mean by a moat?
Was it a playful allusion to tho quan?
tity of rain that had fallen? Or a
sarcastic intimation that the difficnl
ties I had to overcome were trifling
indeed to those which lovers iu the
good old times thought nothing of?
>r was she merely indulging in a poet?
ical license? I left all this for future
consideration; the battlementa were
indubitably the wall, and her mean?
ing was sufficiently plain for imme?
diate practical purposes.
'I come, fair lady, I cornel' I cried,
looking about for a good climbing
situation. But the wall had been
newly pointed, and there were no
cracks or crannies into which finger
or boot tips could be insinuated. A
smooth outface was presented to me,
up which a cat might possibly have
run, though I doubt it, but before
which a clawless creature was help?
"I was now well provided with
writing materials, and I explained
my difficulty on gold-edged, tinted
and scented note-paper, promising,
however, to get over it and up the
wall next day, or perish in tho at?
tempt-though how either alterna?
tive was to bo accomplished, I could
not-for the life of me imagine.
"But the night brought counsel;
and on the following morning, I pro?
cured aeveral large nails, or staples,
and a mallet; and going to the placo
earlier than usual, and firat ascertain?
ing from my post on tho hill-sido
that tho coast was clear, I proceeded
to drive a nail into the mortar at
about three feet from tho ground,
another higher up, and then stand?
ing on the lowest, and holding on to
the other with my left hand, I
knocked a third in still higher; and
so, after many tumbles and abrasions
of the skin, I contrived a series of
points of advantage, which enabled
me to scramble high enough to catch
hold of the wall, and then I was all
right, for tliero were no broken bot?
tles along tho coping.
