Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1881 Excerpt: ...grow smaller and the sunlight expands--for the sun is higher. The sunshine of all life is love. To love and to be. loved, that is to stand in the radiance of heaven. Marian now has the pretty little ways of young womanhood. She lets drop her knitting, and falls into revery, and smiles. She puts away her one doll, and calls it a poor, forlorn old thing. The halo of childhood expands until from head to foot she is clothed in the aureole of womanhood. She goes to the mail and asks for letters. Her letters do not go into her father's box. She has them sent in care of the people at Rosecroft. She does this to avoid explanations to her father and her aunt. She has but one correspondent--that one David Burns. There are two letters in the envelope: one that he writes with a pen, which she takes to Esther to read; the other is written on thick paper, and the letters are traced by a succession of pinholes. Being traced from the back, the torn edges of the punctured paper make raised letters on the front. These letters are not given to Esther to read. Marian carries them in her bosom, and goes with Bruno to the graveyard to read them. Sometimes she puts them under her pillow, and reads them when it is still in the night. She reads them over and over again until the paper is worn quite smooth, then she takes a pin and makes the writing legible again. Perhaps you would like to know what Dave writes in his letters. I will transcribe two, taken from the one envelope. The first one is in a round, full, and bold hand-writing, with many words underscored--but here it is: Barton College, September--,--. My Dear Marian: I'm back again, and hard at work; though you needn't worry for fear that I'll overwork, because there isn't the least danger. As the cool weather begins we are...
