with his reform becauso In some cases
they might tend to curtail the business.
At the same time sho admitted thnt the.
reforms were Just nnd proper. From
talking about tho business they entered
upon the mattt-r of how they would
live after marriage and the preparation
for their wedding, which was set for an
early date. They had agreed on a bouse

would .employ seven servants, bf sides

spending out of tbo profits pf tho busi

leave between $20,000 and $30,000 in

would be very moderate. Still, Cecil
felt that ho should spend no more 'be
