THE VICAR OF WAKEFIELD

yours: if you can stoop to an alliance with a family so poor as mine, take her; obtain her consent,-as I know you have her heart,-and you have mine. And let me tell you, Sir, that I give you no small treasure: she has been celebrated for beauty, it is true, but that is not my meaning,-I give you up a treasure in her mind."

" If your present objection," replied I, " be meant as an evasion of my offer, I desist ; but I know no man so worthy to deserve her as you; and if I could give her thousands, and thousands sought her from me, yet my honest brave Burchell should be my dearest choice."
To all this his silence alone seemed to give a mortifying refusal: and, without the least reply to my offer, he demanded if he could not be furnished with refreshments from the next inn; to which being answered in the affirmative, he ordered them to send in the best dinner that could be provided upon such short notice.

The waiter soon made his appearance with preparations for dinner; a table was lent us by the gaoler, who seemed remarkably assiduous; the wine was disposed in order, and two very well dressed dishes were brought in.
My daughter had not yet heard of her poor brother's melancholy situation, and we all seemed unwilling to damp her cheerfulness by the relation. But it was in vain that I attempted to appear cheerful: the circumstances of my unfortunate son broke through all efforts
