Excerpt: ...fell in love with Mr. Walden, what would you say?" "Suppose a Moon-calf jumped over the moon!" said Cicely disdainfully-"Saint Moses! Maryllia is as likely to fall in love as I am, -and I'm the very last possibility in the way of sentiment. Why, whatever are you thinking of? Maryllia has heaps of men in, love with her, -she could marry to-morrow if she liked." "Ay, no doubt she could marry-that is quite common-but perhaps she could not love!"
