Text Appearing Before Image:
the lovers met no new miscarriage, And soon their parents made them one in marriage. 182 TAKINGS. L. A thrilling moment of unmingled bliss,The happy college youth awaited soon, When with Eliza, now no more a Miss, He took his leave, to spend the honey-moon. This point arrived at, prudent poets stop ; And dramatists at once the curtain drop. LI.

LV. Keep your apartment four good weeks, my dear :Men about Magna Charta make a fuss, Prating about its worth from year to year,But more important is this rule to us. And therefore if restored, be sure dont tell Your husband that youre any thing like well. 184 TAKINGS. LYI. She followed this good counsel, Tom, though gladWhen came the regular restoring day, Repined not at the long retirement had,Rejoiced to see her happy her own way ; Considering her
