Accordingly, One Fine Spring Morning, Pomona, Still A Young Woman, And Jonas, Not Many Years Older, But Imbued With A Semi-Pathetic Complaisance Beyond His Years, Embarked For England And Scotland, To Which Countries It Was Determined To Limit Their Travels.

The letters which follow were written in consequence of the earnest desire of Euphemia to have a full account of the travels and foreign impressions of her former handmaiden.

Pruned of dates, addresses, signatures, and of many personal and friendly allusions, these letters are here presented as Pomona wrote them to Euphemia.

"But if I do that," said I, "I will get tired of them long before they are seasoned, and they will be like a bundle of old sticks that I wouldn't offer to anybody."
