In the blindness of my love my

Heaven that I am spared the pain

Miss Magoik-:
I must confess that your letter of
28th of Febrtipiy, was a surprise to
me. I can't sec tho consistency of
your conduct, nor can I reconcile the
tono of your letters with your profes
sions to me. It is true that I have
been enjoying myself up here with the
ladies, and that my feelings have un
dergone a change since I saw you Wat,
but I deny representing myself as hav
itig been relieved from my engage
ment with you. I full)' intended to
comply with my part of the contract,
and when the time came, to consum
mate it by marrying you. But now
that you have voluntarily set mo at
liberty, I take this occasion to thank
you for your kindness.
I can forgive your ungenerous allu
sions to mc and my clmrac'cr, and
hope that the future will discove?* to
you some one who may be free of'?im
perfection*."
Respect fully,

did to Roberta satisfaction, and more,
voluntarily set him at liberty. But pcd
the turn she takes on him. As soon
as she heard that he was dead in love
with her "dear friend Annie," she ad
dressed that unsuspecting creaturo a
letter replete with hidden malignity;
yet seemingly full o'f good advice,
Maggie'knew when she was writing
to Annie that her old sweetheart was
crazy to marry her, but with truo wo
man shrewdness she affected ignorance
of tho fact, and preached a long loctnro
to Annie on the wickednees of peer
Robert. And she succeeded in ac
complishing her wish, namely, to in
duce Annie to shun Robert. IJq
sought hi vain to have the cause or
his mysterious dismissal from her list
of admirers explained, but up to this
day does not know how ho wafl out
generalcd. Of course what Magg:o
charged against him was false, but it
suited her purpose-. Young men
should get written dismisals from
young ladies whom they design to
break off with; lest they befooled like-;
wise. Both girls have since married^
while Robert is left to solve the cnig.
matieal conduct of'Mii'scic.
