Y'our letter flings fls length to-n'sht,
A link between old hopes i.n.1 fears,
Ami ilreaui".. ami waiN, liiJ blinding tear;
Am! thi -til peace Ilic present wean
T'pon its utrfjce talm and bright
Till, held by bond so frail, the past.
From shrouding distance ,ray and vast,
Klo.it. touched with memorv's matric light.
The came as when, so long ago,
I uat'-lieil its ro-cs bud and blow,
Ami heard its rills and robins sing;
'1 hen s.nv the blossoms scattered low,
The brooklets bound in ice and snow,
'I he robins on the vv inj.
So fair, ( sivict, o colli at la-t
Ilulore me lie a iliangTti! jia.it,
W'ho-e hauiiteii grotltid my stubborn feet
.eltii'0 hum ing ft out a tuaditrciis track,
I llunj; i.o vvavi'iin? glancej back
2s"or turned to eatcli the wannest ray
Tliat streamed from any olden ray;
Hut iias-cd into the future wide and gry.
Where hope nor promise burned.
So wake long slumbering memories,
Koti-ed by jour letter fiem their sleep.
While I, in this first stunned surprise,
Can only look with startled eve,
Nor know if I -hoitld sinilo or weep.
You av tli.it after all thi.se ears
The old bond keep its brightness still;
Tliat laitli flung off her groundless fears
Long since, and grieved above the ill,
Iler warning brought, but pride was strong
Man's pride thatchales to ovvn the wrong.
.So v ear by v ear the th ism grew,
through that brief time of doubt and storm.
When hope was crushed, faith overborn,
Life's fairest pronii-u trailed and rorn,
That love still wrapped his Inning form
With memories sweet, shut out the blasts
And kept him ciadled warm.
Ami then jou ak if i have kept
Jly love unchanged these many days;
Say vott have struggled, praicd and wept
Till siidcring your heart ha swept hare,
Hut for one lone hope that sta) s.
All, friend, that tune so long ago,
That left my roses dashed Willi snow,
'Hie brookltt" iicd, the warbler flown;
Let love the diiflcd death below
Its pulsing life to stillness ground;
With reckless hand jou gave the blow,
Nor cared how bright a head was low.
Jlinc was the woman's bitter part,
The anguish and (he moan.
Yc, love was dead, ami on me still
The woman's bitter portion fell;
Alone to melt a secret wiong,
With secret scorn, ah I pride is strong;
My summer dream was buried well,
I wrapped it iu a stainle-s shroud.
Folded forgiveness round and round,
And hallowed its long grave within
'I he heart's most holy giound.
Alone through that black night of pain,
hi bitterness my soul wa bowed;
Alone above my shrouded dead
I bent a tempest striiktn head,
And o'er that, until da)'s morulcss sleep,
I wept stu-li tears as women weep,
Kre lime the atcngcr rights their wiong
And brings stem solace pride is strong.
You ask, too, with a strange conceit,
If I am angrv th.it you let
So slight a thing divide u-;
And vet jou s.iv forgive, and that old word
Wins more than all the rest a tear.
Ah, Iriend, perchance 1 do Rot know
If iu that time so long ago
These blotted pages Iv ing here
Had told their tale and prayed their pravcr.
It m iv be tint their tender breath
Upon my idol's smitten clay
Had thrilled again that curdling death,
And love had answered love to-day.
I s.ij perchance, for even thin
Will might have reared a stubborn bar.
The earliest time bem still too late,
And old word-, lead in day- afar,
Come hack in bitterness again.
And proven in our severed late
'I he sullen It nth that strong is love and hate,
Hut pride 1- mightier far.
You say that alter storm and strife
l.ove vet may light a glowing west,
And on our upland rays of lite
Some sunset lines of glory rest.
Too late, too late, who ever knew
The bud the bud that Mirhclid iuthesprij
Tout lied with a sudden withering,
To flow er and fruitage grow J
Who ever knew the sodded grave
Make answer into sorrow's prajcr, i
And tcld him back the dut lie gav e ?
In hie and light and beauty there
'I he grave I heaped tliat crumbled long.
Its sad hue lliugs no shadow now.
Long sinie was hid in daisied green,
Now Mellowed into russit glow,
Where first the blight and shadows clung.
The cloud that curtained all my sky
Was scattered b a kindly sun,
And as the huirv ing years went by
Life's purposes grew broad and high
And steadfast hopes aud earnest aims
Took rout above my burled dreams,
And In! the autumn davs ionic on,
Hushed under still, October skie,
My heart forgets its early snows
'I he gold upon its harv. est lies,
Upon its veins Hie puiple glovw.
What, though at tunes in waiting chords,
Some sudden griei floats by, perchance,
And tunc its Indian summer air.
some memory stab with mocking words,
O'er all a few late autumn bilds
Sing all the da) long, and singing glance

What, though the green the summer weavei
Hath paled tor all the time to come.
Still soltlv as on purple blocin

And iu its peace 1 bind mv iipeued shcavc,
And bear mv Iruitaje home.

Your letter liitt from horcs afar,
A leaflet wrenched by the trong tush
Of passionate winds whose stormy war
O'er neep v our soul with shock aud jar.
And frets vuur harvesting with ram.
Friend, H to-night from o'er the wave,
Yourself vveie like vuur letter borne
From sunny seas and India isles.
'Iu wiiere thi northern meonliht snulc.
And down these pathwnvs old and worn
Your weary, wandering leet should turn
To nud so late, past toil and pain,
The rest these roaming crave.
If countless miles ofercstcd blue
Were charmed to naught between us two,
And vvcarv with its clinging care,
Your head were pillowed on my arm,
Mv hand amid vour hiavy hair
Twined with its olden meimer charm.
" l'vvcre idle all; no autumn change
can give the feelings Mav-dav range.
We -hould but lml, though side bv side,
The dead love might uot wake again.
And none the le-s be severed wide.
With that low sunken grave between

'I he locks thec breeze- lilt aud tos.
Are not the maxe of curl and glos-
Y'our fancies cluster flowers among.
The years have wrought with buy hands
Have woven proof of loss and gain.
Why let cares worn, and rusted bands,
Still fret and fetter soul aud brain ?
Let passion sleep, lulled bv the blue sea's roar
Where lotus blooms by that still tropic shore,
Call hack vour carrier dreams across
And haunt the past uo mere.
The Veiled Picture.
"What have j ou concealed hero?" I
buid. taking hold of a heavy silk dra
pery attached lo a rose-rvood cornice
and falling in graceful folds to the floor.
"Lillian! Lillian! don't miti ! t
screamed Mrs. Thorton,sprinriiir from
the easy chair iu which she had been
reclining with the listlcssness of a
dreamy child ; and. (lartinsr to mv side.
she pressed to heavily against the veil
that I could discern the outlines of a
'A picture!" I exclaimed. "Oh! I
must feec it, for I can never rest where
there is anything mysterious."
"Hut this you cannot, must not see!"
1 did not reply, for having been an
mate of the houc only a week, and
this being my first visit to the librarv,
I did not give utterance to the thoughts
which rushed through mv mind. ler
hapsMrs.Thoi ton divined inv thoughts
a, after a moment's .silence," she said :
-Von are to have access to this li
brary at all times ; every book is at
your service, and you are at libcrtv
even to rummage the drawers and pig
eon hole? of my desk, if yourcuriositv
demands it ; but you niitst not look
beneath the veil that hides this picture."
Her pale Jips trembled, and her dark,
expressive eyes were fixed upon mine.
"Just one glance," I said pleadingly.
She moved her head negativelv, and
I went on :
"How can 1 study with that mvstcr
ever before me? and then, too, I shall
never sleep soundlv again, but dream
the livelong night of this mystical veil,
and that it hides sonic strange, wierd
image; or worse, become a somnam
bulist, and frighten evcrv servant
who happens to fear ghosts" from the
house by midnight explorations and
"No eye but mine ever looks upon
this veiled picture. It is sacred, for it
is theonly relic I have preserved of my
past life all that 1 have to remind mo
of happy days too bright to last of a
brief period when life's pathway was
strewn with flowers, and I dreamed
not that beneath thosc'fair, perfumed
flowers' petals sharp, piercing thorns
Her face was as pale as death, and
those deep, dark eyes moist with pearly
I saw that her heart was deeplv pain
ed that with welling from memory's
fount came painful remembrance, and,
truly penitent, I said:
"Forgive my thoughtless words, and
I promise never to raise the veil from
this picture, nor pain your heart bv
An intense smile stole over her pale
features, and. kissing my cheek, she
"Dear child; perhaps some dav 1
may lift the veil and tell you all."
Then turning awav to hide her tears.
she left me standing before the veiled
It was rather curious how I came to
be a boarder in the house of Mrs. Thorn
ton. Two years before,whcn but four
teen, years old, I came to New Haven
to attend school ; and soon after my
father, leaving for Europe where he
expected to remain three vears, en
trusted me to the guardianship of Mrs.
Howe, an old friend of his college davs.
It was at the house of Mrs. Howe that
I first became acquainted with Mrs.
Thornton. She went but little into
society, and my guardian's was one of
the few families slic visited. Her pale,
expressive face attracted me; and
then, too, thcrc.was a indefinable sotne-
tlnng iu lier dark, liquid even, now so
sad, aud now glowing with an intense
smile, that woke an answering echo in
my young heart. She always called
me to her side to ask inc. about iny
studies ; and when a new book was
announced, which she thought would
be suitable for me to read, she placed
it iu my hand, with my name engraven
upon the lly-leaf in her own hand-writing.
Was "it strange my heart wai tned
toward her, that her coming was look
ed forwaid to with pleasure, or that I
oltcn begged for the pleasure of visit
ing her iu her own pleasant home?
My visits there were not very frequent;
and when there we sat in her boudoir,

I had a pleasant home in Mr. Hone's
family; jet it was a pleasant surprise
when he said I could board with Mrs.
Thornton, if I wished, and thought l
.ould be happy there. Mrs. Thornton
had proposed it, as Mr. Howe's family
anticipated being absent from the city
most of the summer; and the follow"
ing Saturday I removed to her home.
It was my first holiday in my new
'tome, and l had gone to the librarv
with Mrs. Thornton to select a book,
vhen, on passing around, my eyes fell
upon the silk drapery shading the wall
in the further corner of the room, ami
vas about to draw it aside, when her

not satisfied; curiosity prompted me
to try to eaten a hasty glimpse when

Summer and autumn passed, and the
long winter evenings were spent iu
the cosy, cheerful library : and though
I cast many a frutie glance towaids
the veiled "picture, dared not question
Mrs. Thornton, and began to despair
of the dawning of that day when she
would relate the historv of the picture.
It was a mild evening iu spring, and
we were sitting before the grate in the
library; I watched the fast dimming
coals that had burned low, while Mrs.
Thornton, with closed eyes, sat near iu
the easy chair. Mv reverie was broken
by the tremulous tones of her

My father returned, and when I told
him how kind Mrs. Thornton had been,
he called to thank her in person; but
she was ill aud could not leave her
room. Wondering what could n'ntntc
her so, I returned to my father saving
that she would be better iu a day or
two, aud tliat he must not leave the
city until he had seen her. But he
was firm iu his decision to leave the
next day, aud I must accompany him.
Then I expressed a wish to Tisit mv

In two liours I would leave my kind

mystery of the library being solved;
so i ventured to unit mat, wiicn 1 came

Mrs. Thornton told her story brieflv.
She was the only child of wealthy par

in the pleasant home to which her hus
band took her. Then a cloud of mid
night darkness overshadowed that
home. Some one, curving her, circu
latedueports injurious" to her reputa

ears, he being naturally of a jealous
disposition, believed them. The wife
loved her husband devotedly, and be

her parental home, aud her husband
was willing, onlv she must leave her
She did go, and three years after, her

aud iu all her wanderings it had been
her companion, though closely veiled
lest some one should recognize it, and
thus her early history become food
for idle gossip. Then, too, she had
seen her child, and for a brief pe

words "Mv Father!" burst from mv

She did not reply, but I read her an

city, a fourth in Februarv.
In a few weeks the moitalitvbecame
so great that the alarmed inhabitants
began to hurry out of town, and iu
time the traffic on the streets consisted
chiefly of coaches and wagons, iu which
entire families were seen making their
escape to the country. Indeed, so
great was the demand for horses, that
at lenght not one was to begot forhiic
at any price. lint before being per-
uiiiicu io pass iiiroiign anv towns on
the road, or to lodge at anv'iun. it was
ncccary to hat e a certificate of health
from the lord mayor; and the general
impatience to obtain this, and to get
out of town as quick as possible, was
much increased by a rumor that an
order of the government was to be is
sued to place barriers in the road to
prevent people from traveling. Thus
a vast crowd of persons were to be
seen surrounding the Mansion House

So great had become the exodui Hint
one of the widest thoroughfare iu the
city presented the appearance of a
green field. Grass grew in Leadcnhall
street, and Uishopgate, and Cornhill
was scarcely a misnomer.
Instead of attributing the disease to
natural causes, .such as impute air and
water, ami exerting themselves to im
prove the sanitary condition of the
city, the inhabitants had recourse to
witches and so-called magicians, from
whom they leeched charms against
infections, which they woic aiound
their necks. The terrified inhabitants
attached much importance to dicams
as omens. Indeed, many persons ima
gined they heard supernatural voices
and saw visions both bydnvand night.
Even iu the streets crowds of people
were to be seen, forgetful for the mo
ment of the danger of such close per
sonal contact with their fellows, and
"earnestly contemplating some fancied
figure in the sky. An old woman per
haps would declare that she saw a
hand come out of a cloud, holding a
flaming sword over the city, when her
assertion would immediately be cor
roborated by several others, who'c

One most perplexing peculiaritv of
this frightful disease was, that its signs
were not always apparent. Iu vcrv

stances the patient sull'ered little, and
was to all appearance iu good health

the tunes is curiously shown iu the
tests to which it was proposed men

whether they were plague stricken.
Some asserted that if a diseased person
were to breathe on a glass, the glass

would appear, which seen through a
