are perhaps ‘The American Harp,’ and it is you
that I have to thank for the present!” For here
be it known, I had wished not to meet the
authoress of a book written in the style of The
Sorrowful Certainties
, because the authoress had
mentioned in her epistle that it had been much
praised in the Cape May newspapers, and I could
not say anything of it but—absurd!

The good intention of the verses, however,
deserved my thanks, and I now gave them quite
properly.

“But,” asked the Harp, “have you read the book?”

“No, not yet; I have merely looked into it.”

“Indeed! but read it through; because it is a book
which, the more it is read, the better it is liked;
and I have written it all, both prose and verse; it
is altogether mine. I have written a deal of verse,
and think of bringing out a collection of my poetical
works; but it is very expensive to bring out such!”

I said that I supposed it must be so.

“Yes,” said she; “but I write verses very easily,
in particular where there is water; and I like to
write about water. I am so very fond of water. Is
there much water in Sweden?”

“Yes, a great deal,” replied I, “both of sea, and
rivers, and lakes.”
