He is almost as cheerful, and quite as communicative, and desirous of making all around him happy, as ever. His constancy, however, is not to be shaken, in one particular. I could wish it were!

While Henry thus expressed himself, Bothwell, who bent his eyes keenly upon him, seemed suddenly to recollect his features. "Aha! my friend Captain Popinjay, I think I have seen you before, and in very suspicious company." "I saw you once," answered Henry, "in the public-house of the town of ."
