the German standard. Or, if you
choose, you can call "brow" as

remember her dropping into rhyme

Away the northern hills,
And draws into her emerald bed
The little snickering rills."

Do you know how happily
your fellow-church folk at Spring Garden
are getting on with Mr. Nichols, their
new minister. I trust our non-resident
member is doing us credit. Please come
this way & report yourself now & then.

Yours, habitually, Chas. Gordon Ames
