A ROM A NCE

BY

JESSIE FOTHERGILL

Hope nothing, if I thus may speak
To thee, a woman, and thence weak.
Hope nothing, I repeat. ....

Farewell all wishes, all debate,
All prayer for this cause, or for that!
Weep, if that aid thee, but depend
Upon no help of outward friend;
Espouse thy doom at once, and cleave
To fortitude without reprieve.'

-WORDSWORTH

IN THREE VOLUMES

VOL. 111.

'Far off she seem'd to hear the dully sound

Of human footsteps fall.
As in strange lands a traveller walking slow,

In doubt and great perplexity,
A little before moon-rise, hears the low

Moan of an unknown sea;
And knows not if it be thunder, or a sound

Of stones thrown down, or one deep cry
Of great wild beasts; then thinketh, “I have found

A new land, but I die.""

STT is almost ludicrous to pause here

while I remark that by this time

not one soul in Hamerton, man, woman, or child, did not know what had happened ; that Sara Holden was Sara Healey, the wife of the Hamerton scapegrace
