Excerpt from Ladies-in-Waiting

IT may be urged that all proper heroines go through a period of uncertainty before giving their hands and hearts in marriage. Occa sionally, however, there are longer seasons of indecision, incident to pride, high temper, or misunderstanding on the lady's side, or to poverty, undue timidity, or lack of high pressure on the part of the gentleman. I have christened the heroines of this volume Ladies-in - Waiting, and that no mental picture may be formed of Queen and Court and Maids of Honor I have asked the artist to portray for the frontispiece a marriage able maiden seated pensively upon a hillside. Her attitude is plainly one of suspended animation while the new moon above her shoulders suggests to the 'reader that she will not wait in vain.
