"Stop!" cried the orange-woman, laying a strong detaining hand on the footman's arm; "stop you 'tis I'll go with more sense and speed." "What is that person that woman?" cried Lady de Brantefield, who now heard and saw the orange-woman for the first time. "Woman! is it me she manes?" said the orange-woman, coming forward quite composedly, shouldering on her cloak. "Is it who I am?
Bowdoin got up hurriedly, and, nodding to the orange-woman, shuffled into his house. But it was too late; Mrs. Bowdoin sat rigid behind the coffee-urn. Harley looked up with a twinkle in his eye. "James, I should think, at your time of life, you'd stop rambling over the Common before breakfast, in carpet slippers, too, when you know I've been up so late the night before at a meeting in behalf of"
The fury of the orange-woman kindled her eyes flashed fire her arms a-kimbo, she advanced repeating, "Fitter! Fitter! What's that ye say? You're not Irish not a bone in your skeleton!"

On my presenting a pistol, the man scrambled out of the window, carrying away with him the prize he had seized. At this moment the faithful Jacob appeared amongst us as if by miracle. "Master, we are safe," said he, "if we can defend ourselves for a few minutes. The orange-woman delivered your letter, and the military are coming.
She was, indeed, an extremely pretty girl; but we need not stop to relate all the fond praises that were bestowed upon her beauty by her partial parents.
