"Our tokens of love are for ihe most part barbarous.

Cold and lifeless, because they do not represent our life.

The only gift is a portion of thyself. Therefore let the farmer give his corn; the miner, a gem; the sailor, coral and shells; the painter, his picture; and the poet, his poem."—Emerson's Essays. A. A. P.

May, 1858.
