Excerpt from Rose and Rue, Vol. 3 of 3: A Novel

However, it had to be. The unfortunate were a law unto themselves. You could not argue concerning them as about the rest Of the world - the prosperous, happy, cheerful people, principally shopkeepers, who never seemed to meet with a disappointment, or be troubled with a care.

For instance, had a rich and handsome and talented young man fallen a Victim to the all-conquering charms Of any one of the three Misses Gregory, he would, of course, have met with the hottest encouragement. Mr. And Mrs.

Gregory would have clasped him alternately to their ample bosoms, wept, gasped, ejaculated, till reason reeled; Miss Susanna, or Miss Elizabeth, or Miss Arabella, the happy virgin on whom his choice had fallen, would have been praised, and petted, and bragged about, till her admiring friends might have felt tempted in the keenness of their anguish to fall upon her in abody, and cruelly kiss and fondle her clean out Of existence.
