I THINK there are certain young people who will hereafter thank their Aunt Anne for having secured them some of their family traditions. They are not of great people, but of good peoplefine old English merchants and Christian gentlemen. These traits of them, my dear Nephews, are recorded for your ensamples ; "in the delivery of which," as wrote Lord Herbert of Cherbury, “I profess to write with all truth and sincerity, as scorning ever to deceive, or speak false to any, and therefore detesting it much more where I am under obligation of speaking to those so near me.

Rest you merry! and be good men and true.

Your loving Aunt,

ANNE MANNING.

REIGATE HILL,

October 25, 1860.
