Excerpt from Jasper Crowe

When an individual undergoes secret. And extraordinary labour, to effect entry into a house, it may be judged that he has good reasons for not entering quietly by the usual approach. The miser loved his daughter, even while subjecting her to menial offices so far beneath her birth and station. Girard was obvious ly a very objectionable suitor; if fault be found with Marv for lis tening to his addresses, it may be pleaded, in extenuation, that the loneliness of her situation - excluding her from cheerful, unrestrained intercourse with persons of her own station - and more especially of her own sex, from whom she would have acquired knowledge of the world - exposed her more readily to be captivated by the dashing, off-hand attentions of a man like Girard, who, in addition to other accomplishments (spite of a li mited education), the gods had made poetical. His broken English, broken verses, snatches of song, impromptu effusions, and at rare intervals, when the old man was far away, the light jingle of guitar-strings, were irresistible.
