twenty dollars a month. But still, he said, he
loved the Old Country best, and he meant to return
to it as soon as he could get together a thousand
dollars.

I inquired if he were married.

No! he had thought it best to remain unmarried.
And then he inquired if I were married.

I replied no; and added that, like him, I thought
it best to remain unmarried, after which I bade
him a friendly good-bye.

But he rose up, and following me, said,

“And you are wandering about here so alone,
miss! Don’t you think it is wearisome to go
wandering about by yourself?”

“No, Jim,” said I; “I like to go by myself.”

“Oh, but you would feel yourself so much better
off,” said he; “you would find yourself so much
happier, if you had a young man to go about with
you and take care of you!”

“But I find myself very well off as I am, Jim,”
said I.

“Oh, but you’d find yourself much, much better
off if you had a young man, I assure you, a young
man who was fond of you and would go with
you everywhere. It makes the greatest difference
in the world to a lady, I do assure you!”

“But, Jim, I am an old lady now, and a young
man would not trouble himself about me.”
