Description Dear Ellen since we were married, he never thinks of me by any other name but Ellen. Dont think for a moment I shun Id be afraid of any questions yon might ask, for right confident am I the mure truth, you know of my husband the better you will like him, at least that is the wav with me, and you know you and I are considerably alike in some things if not more. f am extremely sorry that my marriage did not suit Sister Hutcliinson I was always in hopes it would one reason why I waited so long was for fear I could not please every body else and myself at the same time, at last 1 chose the latter and I think none of my h'we friends will find any fault with me for that; destiny must have its way you know William has returned now and we have moved home and live "as happy as clams at high water" or "as cozy as pit's in clover' - is one of die kindest of husbands and what more need woman ask in this vale of caprice and frowns? Our house is midway between Mothers and Aunt Crosby's/' Now if Father and Frances were at home oh! would nt we have nice times? W-m being a musician I have access to all the parties I wish to attend, and we have some very nice ones here so time passes quite pleasantly; those who think I have not done so well as I had ought must remember that happiness is not always an inmate of "guildcd halls" alone. "Love in a cottage" you know is the most romantic and fully as apt to be enduring I suppose vou think Ah well these fancies will all vanish in air by and by." Very well let them go they are pleasant while they last and let us enjoy them while we mav Love fancies are not the onlv things that vanish thus y M You inquired what kind of looking woman Frank Dewey married, she is a fine healthy looking girl and a good one too; dresses as neat as a pin and has a really pretty baby, tell Margaret it is Alzira the younger of the two that came to school with us that winter but seven vears has made quite r Banics Cms by, wife of Joiiatlinn Crusby. Her journal is very important for the &tu dy ot the Trait family. 3°
