whom I would have no peaceful commerce. I copy from an old memorandum book a

their best caps, then handed the trays, and the young ladies sipped and
crumbled, and the bespoken coaches began to choke the street. Then leave-taking
was not long about; and Miss Twinkleton, in saluting each young lady's cheek,
confided to her an exceedingly neat letter, addressed to her next friend at law,
'with Miss Twinkleton's best compliments' in the corner. This missive she handed
