Englishman. At best a foreign mar
riage is a dangerous adventure. The
American woman was not born to be the
doll of a brainless lord, or to herd with
the poor wall-flowers that decorate the
great houses much as the frescoed
angels which appear upon the ceilings
thereof. I would rather follow the cof
fin of a daughter of mine to the grave,
and see her laid tenderly away in the
little old church-yard at home, than to
follow her down the aisle of St. George’s
Chapel to see her crowned with the
richest coronet in England.”

The Charleston News says that Miss
E. C. Black, a local artist, sent the
President a beautiful bird study, as a
wedding present. The picture was
rendered particularly appropriate by the
motto, which was inscribed upon it in
German text, “To each bird its own
nest is charming.” The fair donor was
rewarded a few days ago by receiving
the following characteristic note of
thanks from Mr. Cleveland : “ Execu
tive Mansion, June 17, 1886. My Dear
Miss Black—l have just received the ex
quisite picture, which you so kindly sent
to me, and beg you to accept my sincere
thanks for the same. I acknowledge the
truth of the words with which the picture
is illuminated, and am very thankful for
their truth. Yours sincerely, Grover
