Title: The Lately Single
File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

Something is the matter. Several of the lately single people in this vicinity have come to a timely end to their single blessedness, and have altogether quit courting. This is certainly a good year for the Divines, if they are the ones who get the business to do. A man is entirely at a loss how to address his most intimate friend after an absence of twelve hours. The thing is done so very still, that no body knows who is to be married from one hour t another. Two friend are walking together, engaged in pleasant conversation, one of them says, "Jim, by the way, you will have to excuse me for a few moments as I have a little business to attend to, I will be back presently." The other replies, "certainly, go along, its all right." In an hour or two they meet again, when the excused party says,"Jim, I'm a married man." "Married!" Jim replies. "Yes, married." "Why didn't you say so before." "Jim, that part of the business i didn't know myself." Such is the thing they call life.
