anything but rest?
I know a woman over seventy, and she
hopes her granddaughter will marry a certain
rich man. The certain rich man is ugly, and
Ill-natured and stupid, but Grandma is de

But do you know what I
would do if I were Jane?
' I'll tell you—I would try to

I’d begin to try to be good.
I'd try to be kind, and gener

And above all I’d keep busy.
Every minute I was awake I’d
