The Mother-In-Law, or Married in Haste

Excerpt from The Mother-in-Law, or Married in Haste Margaret stuart-gordon was a great toast in her time, as you may well suppose. In her face, too, were seen the large tender eyes and sweet arched lips of Mary Stuart and Mary of Lorraine. In her twenty-first year she was given in marriage to Captain Henry Cartwright, a young officer who had distinguished himself in the Revolutionary strug. Gle. On the day of marriage, as the sole condition upon which the hand of an heiress of the house could ever he betrothed, he assumed the name of stuart-gordon. One only child, a delicate fair-haired boy, blessed this union. To this son, of course, the property would fall in regular entail. When Louis stuart-gordon was nearly eighteen years of age, he lost his beautiful and beloved mother, and became the sole and the sufficient consolation of his be reaved and grieving father; and it is at this period that our story opens. Louis, at about the age of eighteen, was one of the - no, not handsome as a man - but one of the most beau tiful youths ever seen - the image of his lovely mother; the same wavy, soft hair the same large, tender eyes; the same sweet mouth, delicate complexion, and mild expression. His figure was slender; his air, gait, and gesture, graceful; and his manners, gentle. His temperament was poetic. This beautiful isle was his home - his heaven; here he would wander all day among the shadowy woods or hoary rocks, or sail upon the bright waters. Yet, such was the tender ness of his heart, that, in all his strolling and sailing, he never caught a fish, killed a rabbit, or shot a bird - nay.
