Ni:V YORK LETTER.
An Interesting Letter From Our Own
New Yoiik, March
It dawned on my thinker
moment's warning that a few words from
your Now York special correspondent
nugm ihj aproiH.s, anu aiso to prove that
I'm still out of jail. I am pluving in bet
ter luck than Jlurg, us you see.
The few choice remarks which follow
ttcsiro to navo up)eur among your regu
lar reading matter, (no matter whether
they aro reudublo or not.) Thoii'ih to uiva
iiiem sirengtn you might suck a patent
medicine ad on each side as bracers.
U10K0 remarks aro not del rious. and
probably could stand by themselves, but
u win no saier to give mem tho support
01 a lamp ost or otherwise.
I had some idea of L'lvini! vou 11 do

sidering tlio number of volumes it would

probably more than thirtv or forty years

I am stopping at a centrally located
pio foundry, recommended to mo by a
cousin, a real estate broker, and one of
tho boys. Ho is only a second cousin. If
ho was a neur and dear first cousin I
should havo felt no hesitancy in killing
and burying him long ago. Ilttt onlv lw
ing a second cousin 1 havo refrained
from being too intimate towards him. Ho
has also festooned my boudoir with 11 Job

threw in Ids own picture with the lot.

New York's nopulaiion now amounts
to about two millions, though it looks as
if the entire earth were located here, and
tho average Now Yorker thinks it is. It
would lie a mxsl scheme to shin about 11

maining natives would Imvu it better
