resented ' himself to be a merchant,
young, wealthy, honest, and in want of
a wife. A long and loving correspon

were exchanged, and Miss Cosgrove
was delighted to find her unseen lover
a good looking youth, distingue in ap

Finally she consented to become Mrs.
Mark ham, and for economy's sake con
sented to come to Wathena to be mar
