She kinder blushed, and, sez she, "No; I have took up a new work." "What is it?" sez I, for she seemed to kinder hang back from tellin', but finally she sez, "It is the 'Peaceful, Prosperous, and Precious Performances of Man." "Wall," sez I, "I'm glad on't. Men should be walked round and painted on all sides to do justice to 'em.

Uncle Joe he is aunt Dorothy's husband is the kindest creature in the world, just the very reverse of Mr. Sheldon in everything. I don't mean that my stepfather is unkind, you know.
