    I could bear It nlltbls hateful mar- riage


    and the trouble It has brought to Alfred and bin parents and me were It not that my very mother naIl father bave turned against me Tho thought that they were ready to sacrlOce my happiness is unendurable And the hor- ror


    of realizing tlJat the tie that binds roe to the man I loathe separates me from tho man I love has driven me road

    To begin at the beginning tour j ears ago whan I was seventeen I tell in love with Alfred Franke one year my senior We had lived near each other in New York and hAd been fribnds alnca childhood and our engagement was quite a matter of course

    to our attachment His parents bad been fond of me for > ears and were delighted at the prospect of our marriage wbloh It was agrxed by both families should talto place as soon as Alfred was oUo to provide for us I

    I continued to work in the Metro- politan

    Jgohlelnlrvser whom I have always de- tested


    beean bothering mo with his at- tentions


    He called Incessantly Ho showered me with Invitations that I s > s- tdmatlcally refused He even dogged mo on my way 10 and from work until I was nearly crazy

    E But he found favor with my people HU father is more or less wealthy He promised my mother that If she could Cit me to marry him she should havo- a considerable bonus and my father should be placed advantageously In the echlelnlnscr ohcoso business

    The more I rebelled against Qilm tho snore fiercely she Insisted that I shouldmarry him You can Imagine what homo life became under these conditions Tho constant noggins vvoro on me BO that I became a nervous wreck and to es ¬ cape the torture I accepted Alfreds lathers invitation to visit at the Kranke borne in Hollls L I

    I stayed there three weeks but the trouble at home constantly proved upon soy mind and Sept 7 I decided to go borne and make peace with iriy people 3 arranged with Alfred that he was to eril for nsc early in to evening andtake me bock to Hollis
