Not illustrated. 1899 edition. Excerpt: ...at first, happen luckily to lie pretty much as one would desire, --here the great flint stones, here the pebbles--and diamonds too. The men of genius knew all this, said more than all this, in their way and proper place on the outside, where Miss M. is still saying something of the kind--to be taken up in its time by some other Mr. Cobden and talked about, and beleaguered.

When what is done cannot be undone, then he will forgive you besides--that is, he will forgive both of us, and set himself to see all manner of good where now he would see evil if we asked him to look. So we will not, if you please, ask him to look on the encouragement of ever so many more kind notes, pleasant as they are to read, and worthy to trust to, under certain conditions. Dear Mr....
