the invitation was civil, and, as he was
to remain in the neighborhood, it might
be that he should again hae an oppor

"Xo doubt he would find it out with

"I can'T see it. for the life of me,"
said Mr. Hlake. He evidently though
that civility demanded such an asser-

young ladies, felt ihat he would never
know them apart, though he might live
in the house for a year.
"Evelina is the third,'" continued Mr.
Hall poising out the one whom Hlake

friend's notice. "Evelina is not quite so

"Papa, what nonsense you do talk!"
"And this is Mary. Mary considers

"What does span qrcgi? mean? I'm
