dont je suis capable, et qu'il mérite de moi, je lui en fasse la restitution.”

FORTUNE.

CHAPTER I.

Men of that large profession that can speak
To every cause and things mere contraries,
Till they are hoarse again, yet all be law !-
That with most quick agility can turn
And re-turn; can make knots and undo them,
Give forked council, take provoking gold
On either hand, and put it up. These men
He knew would thrive.

BEN JONSON.

MR. LANETON, when his resolution was once taken, was not the man to let grass grow under his feet. When he received Bellstar's note, firmly declining the proposal made to him, he felt extremely indignant at his “ingratitude,” as he termed it.

“ This is all the thanks I get for my kindness!” he exclaimed. 66 This is the return made to me for all the indulgence I have shown to him! Now I wash my hands of him. I have quite done with him and his affairs."
