MISS STERLING. Oh ay; she wants nothing but a crook in her hand and a lamb under her arm to be a perfect picture of innocence and simplicity.

MRS. HEIDELBERG. Just as I was drawn at Amsterdam when I went10
over to visit my husband's relations.

MISS STERLING. And then she's so mighty good to servants--pray, John, do this--pray, Tom, do that--thank you, Jenny,--and then so humble to her relations--to he sure, Papa!--as my aunt pleases-- my sister knows best. But with all her demureness and humility she has no objection to be Lady Melvil, it seems, nor to any wickedness that can make her so.

MRS. HEIDELBERG. She Lady Melvil? Compose yourself, niece! I'll ladyship her indeed--a little creepin, cantin, she shan't be the bet

ter for a farden of my money. But tell me, child, how does this20
intriguing with Sir John correspond with her partially to Love- well? I don't see a concatunation here.

MISS STERLING. There I was deceived, madam. I took all their whisperings and stealing into corners to be the mere attraction of vulgar minds; but behold, their private meetings were not to contrive their own insipid happiness but to conspire against mine. But I know whence proceeds Mr. Lovewell's resentment to me. I could not stoop to be familiar with my father's clerk, and so I have lost his interest.

MRS. HEIDELBERG. My spurrit to a T, my dear child! (Kissing her.)30
--Mr. Heidelberg lost his election for member of parliament because I would not demean myself to be slobbered about by drunken shoemakers, beastly cheesemongers, and greasy butchers and tallow-chandlers. However, niece, I can't help diffuring a little in opinion from you in this matter. My experience and sagucity makes me still suspect that there is something more between her and that Lovewell, notwithstanding this affair of Sir John. I had my eye upon them the whole time of breakfast. Sir John, I observed, looked a little confounded, indeed, though I knew nothing 40 of what had passed in the garden. You seemed to sit upon thorns too; but Fanny and Mr. Lovewell made quite another-guess sort of a figur, and were as perfet a pictur of two distrest lovers as
