At the present time shall finish my servitude to poverty. as the twist of fate of beginning has forged my lot inside of those wretched partitions, and made me fellow-prisoner with penury, as a result shall I no longer throw off my chains while i'll? Have I now not a soul--a brain? Do I now not imagine, consider, act, communicate, like these whom males name noble? may perhaps I no longer, despite nature, but develop into the builder of my very own name-- the carver of my very own fortunes? by way of the sunshine of the brilliant solar, i'll not be the slave of others! the `lowborn serf'--the `humble fisher's lad'-- the peasant, hind, and what now not, that implies baseness of start and degradation of soul! No; henceforth i'm going to take my position one of the optimum of all of them, or go away my bones to bleach at the sand!

That I will give my hand where my heart goes, you may rest assured, cousin Kate," said the maiden, with spirited, yet sportive decision. "Marry come up! I shall not wonder if I come to be cousin to a cordwainer's 'prentice yet! " "Love laughs at locksmiths, you have heard it said, cousin. But a truce to this. I am not yet in love, so be not alarmed.
