Tuesday, January 13, 1863.
The credulity of woman
on the subject of being
loved, is very great; they
often mistake a common
liking for a particular
regard, and on this
foundation build
up a castle in the air
and fill it with it
with all the
of their bright hopes
and confiding loved
and where some start-
ing fact destroys the
vision they feel as if
the whole oration were
a blank to them, and
they the most in
of woman
It is safer to be very
on the subject
of being loved; but if
you do make the
mistake, take all the
blame to yourself
and save your
by if you cannot
keep your heart from
loving
