tress lu the thought that the w hole club

to above to abandon the buslues"alonce,
and save their ancestors from shame and
disgrace: "I am greatly pained

from duty to yourselt and your family,
and will soon work you both social and
bu'iness injury. Write me, therefore, at

industriously to your business," Then
comes one that reads thin: "My God!
to think that I have raised u son so utterly
