William Blake to his father ; a patient,

Accordingly, the next morning, when
"Mrs. Bluko bag.m the day with prophetic
indications of being what she called
44 upset," her husband prepared trjres

had resented Will's removal and 4 4 set

lilako remarked, 4 4 she couldn't beany
crosser than she (was lefore," so he de
parted in comparative comfort. -
Will's room was a poor little place.
Ho was not earning much as yet, and he
said 44 anything does for one's self"
with a desolate air that bomewhat
contradicted his philosophy of loneli
ness; still his work improved wonder
fully, and in that ho was always happy.
