Every body with or without rheumatism answered "the cottage." "Very good," pursued Sir Patrick, "It is arranged to ride over to the shooting-cottage this evening, and to try the moor, on that side, the first thing in the morning. If events here will allow me, I shall be delighted to accompany you, and do the honors as well as I can.

Patrick won his heart at once; and every note of Patrick's glowed with affection for Doctor H . After a few weeks of alternating hope and fear, after a natural series of fluctuations of spirits, Patrick wrote me a remarkably quiet letter. He told me that both his doctors had given him a plain answer to his question whether he could recover.

This confidence was touching, and luckily it was not in the least misplaced. Playing 'Sir Patrick Spens' was exactly in our line, little as he suspected it. "Come and help?" I said. "Simply delighted! Do come, Fanny dear. How can we get over the wall?"

Burke and Chatham upon the floor of Parliament plead for America against coercion; Adams and Otis and Patrick Henry in vast popular assemblies fire the colonial heart to resist aggression; Webster lays the corner-stone on Bunker Hill, or in the Senate unmasks secession in the guise of political abstraction; Everett must have the living Lafayette by his side.
