"Edina, Scotia's darling seat!
All hail thy palaces and towers!"

EDINBURGH, April ,189-.
22, Breadalbane Terrace.

WE have traveled together before,Salemina, Francesca, and I, and we know the veryworst there is to know about one another. After this point has been reached, it is as if a triangular marriage had taken place, and, with the honeymoon comfortably over, we slip along in thoroughly friendly fashion. I use no warmer word than "friendly" because, in the first place, the highest tides of feeling do not visit the coasts of triangular alliances; and because, in the second place, "friendly" is a word capable of putting to the blush many a more passionate and endearing one.

Every one knows of our experiences inEngland, for we wrote volumes of letters concerning them, the which were widely circulated among our friends at the time and read aloud under the evening lamps in the several cities of our residence.
