about, although we doubt the propriety
o f the passage o f tke law. It is a well

England have intermarried for years,

W e cannot see that it has in the least

You are all right, sir. Put your
trust in me. I ’ ll buy Ireland, and
you shall have as good a chance as any
man. I am going to sail right away.
You will hear about me as soon as I
touch the Emerald shores. I shall get
out sorao advertisements and make my
presence known. I make no preten­

I shall be heartily welcomed there and
promptly eared for.”
Since that time my nnclc has not

in him, but he thinks that maybe he is
too quiet a man to make much o f a

account. But have you heard anything
ot Mr. Train? Do you know i f he got
out any advertisements? A nd do you
know i f they received him heartily
there, and more especially i f they took

thing with my rolative. I f they took

were to hear that Mr. Tram ia there, in
a strange land, without any place to
stay, it would nearly break his heart.
If you could ouly inform u* that Mr.
Train is safe, and has been received
hospitably, and has a good tranquil
place to board in, suitable to a quiet
man like him, it would be a great
comfort to the old man.
