Overview

Excerpt from It Is the Law: A Story of Marriage and Divorce in New York

The virtuous woman is a crown to her husband, Prov. xii. 4.

"My darling, I love you; passionately, devotedly. Fly with me, and we will find a home which we will make a paradise on earth. My love, my life, with you beside me, your love to strengthen me, I can carve out a fortune to lay at your feet. You love me even as I love you. Why should you hesitate, Mabelle?"

She looked into the frank and handsome face, pleading so earnestly, and smiled a little sadly and very sweetly, as she answered slowly and with quaint pauses between each sentence, in a manner all her own.

"No, Dick; it is quite useless to urge anything of that kind; but I am willing to listen to anything you have to say. The speaker is one and the listener is another; and what you have to say is a part of the story we are making, is it not? Haven't you stronger reasons to urge. Something to really tempt me, Dick?"

"Do you need more, Mabelle, than our love? Can you not desire, even as I do, that we shall be all in all to one another - forgetting the world and by the world forgot. Do you not wish, as I do, that the world held only us two, and no more?"
