A word in passing about the romance of the family. Just because the Brown family islarge, it has come to be deemed unromantic. Every one knows that two of the sixgreen-grocers in the next street are Browns. The fat sedate butcher round thecorner is David Brown, and the milkman is James Brown. The latter is a squarefaced practical man, who is looked up to as a species of oracle by all his friends. Halfa dozen drapers within a mile of you are named Brown, and all of them are shrewdmen of business, who have feathered their nests well, and stick to business likeburrs. You will certainly find that several of the hardest-working clergymen, andone or more of the city missionaries, are named Brown; and as to Doctor Browns,there is no end of them! But why go further? The fact is patent to everyunprejudiced person.
