It might lie objected that this bittoi
outburst was tho result of temtieramen
tal rather than intellectual differences,
as in tho caso of Margaret Fuller, whose
tactlessness and not hor wisdom formed
an obstaclo to friendship. The first men

from Margaret Fuller. She was cheery
and sweet tempered as woll us witty nnd
amusing, only and therein lay very
possibly tho secret sho had not mi atom

to men, but when the sense of fun wns
strong upon her sho would laugh at
them as well as with them. And this is

whether tho offender is ever for riven or
Men Hkea jolly woman, tint they rarely
love her. They laugh a good dual among
themselves, mid feminine jesting appar

But men don't like a fool'. Por a fool
is apt to tense and torment in a thousand
