encircled her waist in Warlike ic“*ing

aiiiplituie and bonnet stihigs. like a lost ’

all was dark as night, he groped -his way

he bad dune many things for which he was
sorry, and he deemed it his duty to make
full restitution to those he had wronged.
He therefore Boritk'd all such (hat if
they would call at bis tcoru he would cer

and arAUSAti him from bed. Raising the 1
