Excerpt from Stella's Fortune, or Love the Conqueror The speaker was Mrs. Newton; the person addressed was her daughter Stella, upon whose beauty Lord Mas: minon had passed so decided an encomium, and the scene was the small drawing-room of Mrs. Newton's villa at Hyde Park Corner. As a slight pause followed the lady's enunciation of a well-known axiom, we will fill it by remarking that Mrs. Newton was a thin, pompous lady, good at heart, but of lofty ambition, whose sole aim and object in life was m see her daughter Stella well married. Mrs. Newton came of a trading stock; her husband. Whom Lord Marmion had spoken of as old Daniel, W of trade also; he had made money, and Mrs. Newton was endeavoring to impress upon her daughter the necessity of a solemn watchfulness of the main matrimonial chance.
