Part of Tom Burke Of Ours series by Charles James Lever. As it is, I never was moreconscious of the demerits of my volume than when inscribing it to you;but I cannot resist the temptation of being, even thus, associated witha name,-the first in my country's literature. Another motive I will not conceal,-the ardent desire I have to assureyou, that, amid the thousands you have made better, and wiser, andhappier, by your writings, you cannot count one who feels more proudlythe common tie of country with you, nor more sincerely admires yourgoodness and your genius, than. Your devoted and obedient servant, Charles j. lever. Temple-O Nov. 25, 1848.

CHAPTER XXXVI. And who are you that dare to speak thus?" said the younger; "or howcame one like you mixed up with men whose hearts were in a great cause,and who came to sell their lives upon it?" "I tell you, boy," broke in the elder, in a slow and measured tone,"I have made more stalwart limbs than thine bend, and stronger jointscrack, for less than thou hast ventured to tell us; but sorrow andsuffering are hard masters, and I can bear more now than I was wont todo. Some trifling details of duty detained me at one or two of the outposts,and it was beyond my usual time when I turned homeward. Chapter XXX. A warning. I had but justreached the broad alley that leads to the foot of the great terrace,when I saw a figure before me hastening on towards the chateau. Theflutter of the dress showed it to be a woman; and then the thoughtflashed on me,-it was Mademoiselle de Meudon. To date my recollections from my first consciousness, I may state that Ifound myself on my back in a very narrow bed, a table beside me coveredwith phials and small flasks, with paper cravats, some of which hungdown, queue fashion, to an absurd extent. A few rush backed and bottomedchairs lay along the walls, which were coarsely whitewashed. Oh! I know more than that, Burke; and, believe me, if my foolishconduct the first day we met had led to anything disastrous, I shouldhave passed a life of sorrow for it ever after. CHAPTER XXVI. But we shall have timeenough to talk over all these matters in the green alleys of Versailles,where I hope to see you before a week be over. Great events may happenere long, too. Burke, you don't know it; but I can tell you, a war withEngland is at this moment on the eve of declaration.
