This is a pre-1923 historical reproduction that was curated for quality. Quality assurance was conducted on each of these books in an attempt to remove books with imperfections introduced by the digitization process. Though we have made best efforts - the books may have occasional errors that do not impede the reading experience. We believe this work is culturally important and have elected to bring the book back into print as part of our continuing commitment to the preservation of printed works worldwide.
A vision of comfort and gladness that tropical March morning genial as a July dawn in my own less ardent clime; but the memory of two round tender arms and two little dimpled hands that so lately had made themselves loving fetters round my neck in the vain hope of holding mamma fast blinded my outlook; and as with a nervous tremor and a rude jerk we came to anchor there so with a shock and a tremor I came to my hard realities.
